Those are the reasons why I wouldn't place him in my top ten from a speaking from a talent perspective meaning his range of capabilities on the court.
So basically you see him one time a year in the sectional finals at UD when he's getting doubled teamed every possession. Meanwhile, top evaluators and college coaches see him play against the best of the best on the AAU circuit and have seen fit to consider him to be elite. He went toe-to-toe with a top-10 guy in the '14 class in Justin Jackson at FTH two years in a row. The guy made the 18U national team. He'll be a McDonald's All-American. And to recap his national rankings:

Scout - 19th (5-star)
Rivals - 13th (5-star)
ESPN - 31st (5-star)
24/7 - 16th (5-star)

But sure, continue to believe all of that's just because he racks up stats in the SWBL.
