None of the guys who actually went to college were in the elite level where people are speculating that they might skip college. That is not to say that none of them will be college stars, because a couple probably will.
This year, it looks like Ronnie Schneider (early UNC commit), Mackenzie McDonald (northern California kid), and Connor Farren (also northern California, been sick lately, I think), although the group right behind them has some guys who are very competitive with them. Will be interesting to see if Stanford can keep one of the northern Cal elite kids home.
McDonald is going to UCLA or pro. I doubt Farren has the grades for Stanford since he has been homeschooled. Stanford needs to find some elite players. Right now they have a bunch of #4, 5, and 6 players. I do like their chances in the bottom positions, but definitely not the top.
