Xavier Basketball 2010 Committments

Justin Martin (6'7, SF), 4-star recruit, Ranked 83rd on the Rivals150.
Jordan Latham (6'8, PF), 3-star recruit, Ranked 121st on the Rivals150.
Jay Canty (6'5, SG/SF), 3-star recruit, Ranked 130th on Rivals150.

Not to mention Mack has another recruit, Darwin Davis, committed to Xavier for the class of 2011. Davis is a 5'9 PG that is Ranked 68th on the Rivals150.

Amazing how a new head coach in the A-10 can get three Rivals150 recruits to commit to a small D-1 university after a highly-touted coach leaves for the PAC-10. Is Xavier really a mid-major?

As an argument to this how much weight do you place on recruiting website rankings? For instance, both Darnell Wilks and Anthony ("Biggie") McClain of UC were Rivals100 recruits and haven't lived up to the hype yet. However, Deonta Vaughn and Derrick Brown weren't "highly ranked" recruits...
