So regardless of the motivations of the people picking making the predictions, they can be very accurate, especially for the players who have a lot of predictions. This comes with caveats - the predictions can jump around a bunch over time, so at any given time there may or may not be any predictive value. But on the eve of an announcement, whatever school predictors land on tends to be pretty accurate.
With that in mind if things hold and Shittu announces soon, I would feel very good about our chances. Likewise, keep an eye on the CB as Langford gets close to an announcement. If it is truly far away, a lot of things could happen from here on out.

If he hasn't committed by now then I don't he is going to by the end of this period. I can't really blame him, he's only visited one school (vandy) and it's hard to make that big of a decision without having other benchmarks. We are still in the lead with him for now, will have to continue to recruit through the basketball season and hope to sign him in the spring.

Ditto, but...Simi may end up at UK now with them missing on R.J. Barrett. They said they wouldn't go to college together. With Duke picking up Barrett, that opens up UK, who will come after him hard again if we don't sign him in this period. I'm afraid that despite how promising things have looked with him for so long, he may slip away from VU.
