On Malcolm Hill, Maverick Morgan and recruiting changes

Rankin said Hill grew more comfortable as the camp wore on and averaged around eight points and two rebounds.

"I think he's just scratching the surface. He looks young. I think he may even grow a little bit more," Rankin said. "I think his maturity is good for his age. But you can see he's just at the tip of the iceberg, if you will. He's only going to get better.

"He's going to be a good one. He's just going to have to continue to add strength and maintain his aggressiveness and he'll be an excellent, excellent player in John Groce's system, which I have a great feel for."
