I just finished posting about this on McGraw's Bench with appropriate Irish prospects and wrote up both the player's ranking and their rating. What's amazing is that if you look at the top ranked prospect, Fudd, she has a 99 while the 16th and 17th ranked players come in at 96.
Yes, the rankings get headlines but I think that the ratings sometimes help explain why coaches might look at prospects "way below other ranked players," when, in fact, their ratings are pretty close. Lots of good talent in this class...and the race for the remaining 2020 prospects is winding down.
It seems to be a strong class. He really has Fudd on her own level though because while she gets a 99, Olivia Miles gets the only 98, and then there are just 3 players with 97's. He separates the top-5 from the rest and even then Fudd is a step or two above the other four.
I wonder where Awak Kuier would be ranked because she strikes me as even more impact than Fudd.
