I looked at the college rankings online, and Clayton isn't even the highest ranked player at his school. Klahn is quite a bit higher up in the rankings.

What's the deal here? Why so much hype for clatyon if he's a junior and not even in the top 20 for college rankings?

This is not meant to disparage Clayton. I've watched him on youtube and he's obviously very talented. I'm just curious as to why he is the only college player I've heard of and he's not even in the top 10.
It is called "overhype" and is propogated by one particular member of this board. We had the same situation with Matt Bruch (who?) three years ago when there were some outragious predictions being made about him. In fact, each player this particular board member hypes seems to go down in flames ...
