I agree with your statement as you never know how a 6'1 highschool stars game carries over to the next level against bigger stronger athletes. I'm certainly not claiming that Charlie should be offered a scholarship at NU. With that being said, I hope someone gives the kid a shot. His basketball IQ is off the charts and he knows how to win. Anyone that has seen Charlie play at the AAU level knows he can hang with the big boys. My main point of this post was to say hey, if you have a chance, watch this kid play. He's one of the best all around highschool players that I've seen in quite a while.I never seen Easley play and do not know him whatsoever ... I suspect you're right that he's very good and collegiate material but I think people see a super athletic high schooler and think it will be that way in college. At Iowa or Lincoln or Brookings SD every kid there is super athletic. Things that appear easy in high school go away because he's playing against just as athletic and just as skilled players ... and now he's 6'1" going up against 6'5" and 6'6" kids.
Not diminishing him at all ... never seen him play its just that its easy to look good when you're the most athletic guy every game on the court. Colleges are not missing on him by accident.
