#AskCoachB: Fewer one-and-dones in '14?

The Class of 2014 is strong at the the top. The problem is when you compare it to last year's group (2013), you do see fewer one-and-done prospects.
Our rankings and grades -- as well as their progress and how the NBA drafts -- suggests that we could have at least a handful of one-and-done candidates, if not more.
With that being said, there will be a player or two who emerges because of their talent and work ethic, as well as a portion of players that you suggest are two or three years away from getting drafted.
As this high school season gets underway, we will have a better evaluation as to who might fit into those categories.
