RE: MMM Top 25 Returning Players
I knew Braun would be #1. That was a no brainer. I am a bit surprised Jones was this high, but he certainly is in the top 10. As to his skills, he is an elite rebounder, can guard the 4 and 5 even though is is severely undersized. And his passing is underrated. He can essentially function as a point forward from time to time. He was the glue that made things happen for the Aggies last year. If he developed a jump shot during the off season...watch out.

On the Aggie board, everyone kept referring to our big 3 (Chuha, N'Dir and Harris). I kept asking why Jones wasn't part of a big 4. I feel a bit vindicated by this ranking.

5. Isaac Neilson (Utah Valley)
4. Nick Dixon (UT Rio Grande Valley)
3. Jemerrio Jones (New Mexico State)
2. Eli Chuha (New Mexico State)
1. Joshua Braun (Grand Canyon)
I think Jones is way too high. I would have placed Durham in the top 5 (in fact in the top 3) and had Jemerrio Jones behind Oscar Frayer. Perhaps I have not seen a large enough sample size of Jones to be impressed.
I'd also place Chuha ahead of Braun even though I am a GCU fan. Chuha was very impressive against GCU at GCU last year. If he becomes the focal point of the NMSU offense this year than look out!

Yeah I completely agree with that. Durham was snubbed pretty hard. Best in the league at creating his own shot and scoring in general. Him, Braun and Chuha are a top 3 a bit ahead of everyone else. They've separated themselves.

You guys won't believe me, but I didn't read the article before my post. I just read it now and feel like a schmuck with the point forward comment I made since that is exactly what the article stated. Oh well. Great minds think alike? 04-cheers

If UMKC had Neilson and Dixon we would win every game. You guys can have everyone else. Only other 1 is Chuha.
