Not sure I would have repeated the rumor about our guy if so insubstantial

There has already been heavy praise (not rumors) for Beekman's pre season capabilities so not a stretch to think he can already spell Clarke now. Morsell has also gotten a lot of public praise from the staff so expecting him to start and take a step forward. Ps, Mamadi was always a project, ranked because of unbelievable athletic upside. He was coming from Blue Ridge as a former soccer player with very little basketball experience so everyone knew it would take a while. Now, he will likely make some money in the league. Forget the rankings, but I wouldn't compare his situation and 1st year readiness for the college game to JAR. The latter already has a developed skillset and a lot more playing experience coming into college. No idea whether he starts or comes off the bench, but see little chance, he isn't a rotation player very soon. I agree that Perrantes and Brogdon overplayed their rankings but no returning upperclassmen competing for wing minutes is even close to the caliber of those guys so JAR isn't competing against established starters but less athletic role players for minutes. Maybe 1 or more upperclassmen blossom this year but no guarantees.
