    It’s a bit off topic but I noticed an article that had our Nic Lynch ranked as the #35 Center recruit in the country. One spot ahead of him was Lafayette recruit Sean Good who is considered the #5 recruit in PA by some sources.
    The interesting part is his career stats which reminds me of Nerlens Noel

    681 points
    766 rebounds
    127 assists
    395 blocks
    heading into his senior year.

    Note that there is a HUGE difference in the level of competition between Noel, who played a strong national schedule, and Good, who plays a mediocre schedule in the Harrisburg area. Rankings of Good vary, from the #5 you cite, to much lower ones. One issue is his lack of weight and strength. That may change as he goes through college but it is not certain.

    It is a bit concerning that Good -who is 6-10 and playing against shorter, less skilled players – is only averaging about 13 ppg and about 8.5 rpg. Compare that to Ryan Young – who plays better competition and is averaging about 18 ppg and 11.5 rpg. Nana Foulland, who had much less basketball experience than Good and faced a harder schedule, averaged 20.5 ppg and 9.5 rpg. Looking back further, Good as a 6-10 junior averaged about 8.5 ppg albeit with more rebounds than he is getting this year. One other stat that may be concerning is that in Trinity’s four losses – to Steelton-Highspire (2), Camp Hill, and Middletown – he is averaging only 8.5 ppg.

    My guess, and it is only a guess, is that he will be a solid PL center and make All-PL at some point. But I think it is unlikely he will turn into a Muscala or a McNaughton or a Kempton or a Foulland. He will likely be an important addition to LC’s lineup, however, since they really don’t have a true center and he may fill that role.

    My point is that like Noel, he makes a living off of blocks and rebounds. The young man will need to put on muscle too. He is listed at 6-10, 200#. I was not in any way suggesting that he is as good as Noel but time will tell how far he goes.

    Interesting bit on Good. Admit I am much more concerned with how Lynch will transition to college. I have dreams of Karnik at PF and Nic at C.:)

    It’s not all that hard to get blocks and rebounds when you are mostly playing mediocre teams with undersized or underskilled big men. His block totals have been good, but his rebound totals have not been very impressive given the context.
