Just my opinion.
There were I think 9 4 stars in Oregon this year, huganga (usc), Lenzy (Notre Dame) and Cota (UCLA) were the only ones I liked. The majority of Oregon high school players are overrated because they play crap competition, in my opinion. Including the ones signing with Oregon.
C'mon, get real. If he decommits, "we didn't want him anyway." If he commits, he's a "borderline" 5-star. Very entertaining.
As for the description, you could be describing my youngest son although he's athletic but not really fast, if that makes sense. He is also very competitive so we let him switch from private school to public 4A. While he was at private his school played a team called Archbishop Murphy HS, a private catholic school located in the 'burbs north of Seattle. Archbishop is what you would call a "stacked" team, so much so that the smaller schools in their division often just forfeit to protect their players who are typically much smaller than Archbishop's. They recruit players from around the region and are able to bypass rules governing recruitment of players outside of their district due to their private catholic status. Typically, they will give scholarships to those players who cannot afford the tuition.
So, not only do they play against inferior (crap, as you say) competition, but often they don't play at all with several teams forfeiting their games. Does this make their players bad? Apparently not, because they are one of the highly recruited schools in the region and in fact, Kyler Gordon, the states #1 recruit who chose UDub, is an Archbishop Murphy player.
