Kyle played 46% (about 18 1/2 minutes) as a 1st year, averaging 7.5 pts/gm

He jumped to 80% and 87% for his next 2 years. He wasn't a top 50 shooting guard his first year.

EDIT: I see you used the rankings coming out of HS to define top 50/100 players. While many are capable of stepping in immediately, their contribution is dependent on what teams already have as I noted below.

Kyle definitely showed flashes, but it was Tony's plan to get him up to speed.

Not sure how much more PT he'd get at any of the other schools that recruited him. Butler, Cal, Michigan and Indiana were likely his top schools. 247 had him pegged as a Michigan recruit. All had other combo guards though it's impossible to tell how he would have matched up.

Like your work on the top 50 but the missing factor is what did teams with high ranking recruits already have so the newbies were in line behind them? Wonder how many of the higher ranked people started? Kyle started 56% of our games per KenPom.
