I long ago learned to ignore recruiting "rankings" as they are less accurate than weather forecasts. There's a better chance the guys who get paid to predict the weather have actually analyzed some data at some point. Samuels looks very promising to me, I don't get the hate. In videos I've seen, I was pleasantly surprised at his level of athleticism compared to his ranking. He's very quick and strong for his size. He's also very unselfish and has a great motor. He gets criticism from gurus for not being a good perimeter shooter, but the games I've seen, he doesn't take that many, so your mileage may vary. In his interviews, he already sounds like a college graduate - articulate and thoughtful. His game is remarkably similar to Kevin Ollie's at the same level. He's a good get.
