Cal needs to find 1-2 guys like Willis each year to build some depth and so that they can provide the sr. leadership in the future. A lot of UK fans question taking him but he is exactly the type of complimentary player we need to the 1 and done recruits.
I think Derek is being sold a little short by some people. He is having a good senior season so far and will be IMO a Kyle Wiltjer type of player and that would be an important addition to next years team. He can shoot from the perimeter pretty well and has soft hands. He will have to get a little tougher on defense but most freshman do. Im glad Cal signed him and he will be an asset to UK for the next few years.
Call me an idiot, but what does Jerry mean by outlier?
A person or thing situated away or detached from the main body or system.
A person or thing excluded from a group; an outsider.
I totally agree. I think that the team would be much more consistent yr to yr if he took 3 one and done players and 2 developers every yr.
He's referring to the discrepancy between 247's ranking and the 247 Composite ranking which is an average of several sites rankings. 247 ranks Wills 64th overall, but other sites are low on him bringing his Composite ranking down to 128.
Agree we need a Darius Miller type on the team who is going to stick around and teach the younger guys the work ethic it takes to win at a high level.
That description may apply to Willis but not to everyone else he has listed there. In some cases the rankings are not demonstrably different and in quite a few the kids are ranked higher in the composite than they are in the 247rankings.
Hence my confusion with what Jerry means by the term.
