His ranking and projection for Withers:
Friday, November 15, 2002
Another player we had a lot higher than everybody else in our final rankings last spring was 6’7 Curtis Withers from Charlotte (West Charlotte) NC. We had Withers ranked #31 in the nation. In contrast, Bob Gibbons of All-Stars Sports, which is based in North Carolina, had Withers ranked no higher than #157 in his final rankings. We bring this up, because the word on the street is that Withers has turned out to be a major surprise in practice this fall and, as a result, will likely be one of the leading candidates for Rookie-of-the-Year honors in Conference USA this season.
The talent rating increase column is interesting.
Lutz ranks 57th of active coaches and has averaged 19.7 wins/per season as a head coach.
