But the point is, in terms of his ranking, Chatman is a guy most people (including those doing the rankings) did expect to contribute right away. And in fact, early in his freshman year he had back to back 11 point, 8 rebound and 10 point, 9 rebound games (the latter coming against Syracuse), he just kinda fell apart after that. His biggest problem seemed to be just making jump shots. But then we threw Dawkins in there and he was good for awhile.
In any event, in the whole "should we have recruited Wilson" discussion, it's not like we turned down better players for Wilson. In the whole "offer him, or not" analysis, the guy ended up being a starter and valuable contributor on a team that won the Big Ten tourney and made the S16. Easy call IMO.
