Exactly, and why I pay ZERO attention to the rankings services.
Considering the circumstances I am excited for what Morris has done and can only imagine how little I would give a $hit if Littrell was still here.
McCasland coaches a defense first team strategy that is a much bigger factor in the low scoring average than lack of offensive players.
Ousmane is inconsistent but that has a lot to do with the various defenses played by opponent. However, he also has games were he just seems to be off his shot. Takes those hook shoots from too far away from the basket.
Every player has better and worst games, but overall IMO Huntsberry, Perry, and Scott are consistent offensive players. Eady is consistent, but takes few shoots. Jones is recovering and getting better every game. He is becoming a major offensive threat.
As you point out, the most questionable transfers are from Miami...... where Rhett just coached them and knows first hand if they weren't playing because they were busts or if they were just behind a better ACC stud. We had some severe deficiencies last year and serviceable ACC backups are major upgrades.
Some transfers are for depth (another critical deficiency) and may not start, but is still a major upgrade over the disastrous 2nd string we were dealing with previously.
The QB is a special case - not expected to play, knows that, and wants to coach. Job is to come, bring a P5 mindset, help coach Stone and KHJ, and not be a disaster if he has to play.
We needed a prime WR1, didn't get it, needed more TE help, but overall MASSIVE, MASSIVE upgrade to total team talent. NIL is a miracle. An NIL player is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.
