I watched some highlight videos of Pryce Sandfort and I hope he’s a hell of a shooter, because athletically he’s really nothing special. He appears to handle the ball well for a player his size, but he lacks quickness or the ability to finish at the rim. He doesn’t look like a Top 100 kid to me at all.
How tall is he?

He's more athletic than his brother, little more fluidity to frame. Watched him a couple times over the last 2 years and he was mostly a shooter...didn't put it on the floor (didn't need to with his brother, Tucker DeVries, and Omaha) given who he played with at Waukee.

Fran has a penetrating PG coming in Bowen

a reasonably athletic 2 in Dix

stretch 4 in Freeman

Sandfort could be the perimeter shooter

Rivals 100, 247 106.

We'll see if he holds those rankings, but right now it's a good offer.
I think the lack of other high major offers is more telling than his ranking. The five players ranked directly below him by 247 have an average of 10 high major offers. Sandfort only has Iowa.

I actually think Drew Kingery from Indianola looks like the more impressive prospect.

I learned my lesson about judging recruits after the Murrays’ recruitment. It’s better to just admit that you know less than shit.
There was no recent video available at the time the Murrays committed. Once some video was available, it was easy to see that they had grown into athletic and versatile 6-8 players.

Sandfort’s mom is one of those critical race theory conspiracy weirdos.

I’ll add that the most recent film I’ve seen on Pryce is 3 months old, so it’s possible he’s improved in that time.
