There are few changes to the top 25, but two players - Chandler Parsons and Austin Daye - cracked the list and became five-star recruits. Meyer said the lanky wing forwards will only improve as they add weight and bulk to their 6-foot-9 frames.

"Both Parsons and Daye caught our eye last spring with their high skill level as tall wing players," he said. "They are tremendous shooters who can create shots for themselves or teammates off the dribble. Our hesitation in ranking them too high after the summer was the lack of physicality in their play," Meyer said.

"Similar to what Kevin Durant has done this year in becoming a better rebounder and defender, we are convinced that Parsons and Daye are on track to become more physical players. Combine that with their length and basketball skill, and they are on track to be NBA players."

FYI....Gray dropped 5 places, and Sacre moved up 5 places.

That Chandler kid is supposed to be really, really good. He's going to Florida. He's a late bloomer like Austin.

Singler at #4, Love at #5 and Chapman at #68, Wow, the Ducks are going to be great next year.........oh wait, never mind.;)

FTR, I would like to see Daye make the McD's AA team just so I could see him play.

Daye is not likely to be a Burger Boy. My personal opinion, and confirmed by 2 analysts. You have to be an established recruit for 3-4 years to get into that game....it is hard to get in if you are a late bloomer.

It would be fun to see him in that game though, wouldn't it?

Maybe he can get into one of the other high school all-star games.

Chapman at #68 and Sacre at #95 .......

It will be interesting to see how their careers compare.

Was Gonzaga ever interested in Chapman or did they decide from the beginning that the would rather have Sacre?

We're going to the Final Four in two years. It's gonna happen.

I've seen Chapman play a couple of times and he's very overrated.

sacre definately has the brighter upside as well. With his size and already established skill set he has the potential to become a dominant big. IMO I think he could make the biggest impact based on what I have heard from Gonzaga players talking about his play. Its a good thing when Daye and Sacre are troubling me to determine which one will have the bigger impact...good days are ahead

Also, Poling appears to be getting healthier. In the last 2 games he's posted 27 and 23 point games. Don't write him off yet. If he can stay healthy and add some muscle, he will be a player.
