You really think so? Maybe video clips, but I seem to recall something about lot of weight being put on that one scout in Minnesota. I'm sure several teams had watched him play, but how often do you think they make a trip to a High School game?

It just seems like one person probably really pushed for it, said it could be the steal of the draft and it ends up blowing up in our faces. I mean really, a Minnesota High School league? How can you honestly tell if they are a Top 30 17/18 year old in the entire world?
