1) I completely agree with you
2) Obviously star ratings aren't everything, but another way to look at this might be:
- Assume Carlton Davis were uncommitted
- The targets left on the board are Isaiah Prince, Terry Beckner Jr., Porter Gustin, KJ Hill, Arnette, etc.
- We have limited spots
--> Although the sentiment of being dissapointed with lower rated players committing over higher rated players is discouraged, it's real. I think the general 11W community would much rather fill a spot with Prince, Beckner or Gustin than Davis. I feel like we're likely to land at least one of those studs and Davis decommitting means we don't have to do any shady roster maneuvering to make room.
