I talk to Matt all the time. He expected Dave to have a big year but I don’t think he or anyone realistically could’ve envisioned it would be this good. He believes Dave is the clear cut leader for Mr. basketball right now. I agree with that too but high school coaches tend to think a little more irrationally when the votes have to be placed so hopefully if Dave keeps it up, he will get the mr. Basketball award like he deserves as of now. I think Dave should and will get a bump in all scout services. I’m sure he will get a bump in Matt’s rankings. Not sure how big of a jump but I definitely think he deserves one and i will push hard for him to get a bump in the Prep Hoops national rankings when we update ours as well. We currently have him at 84 nationally, and Loyer at 80 but these rankings were done months ago during the fall before even preseason started. I’m thinking Dave should certainly climb into the top 75 in the next update for the national ranking. To give an idea at how old these rankings are, we still got Tyger Campbell listed as committed to DePaul. The guys who update the table are based in Minnesota so I can’t manually update these. FYI Iggy is not in the prep hoops rankings because I think he’s never played high school ball in the US. But Lugentz Dort is ranked so I’ll need to have a chat about that too.
I’ve also been in some of the ears of guys who work for the bigger scout services like 247 and rivals, so hopefully they will give him a bump. Into the top 100 at the bare minimum.
