I saw Moses Brown play at the UA showcase in Indy and wasn't too impressed. Don't get me wrong he's a pretty good player but he struggled against teams when they threw other 7 footers in his face. And was a putrid free throw shooter. I'd like to have him but I think he is ranked higher than he should be because this is a weaker big man class

His highlight videos don't make him look all that great either.  I'd rather have him than not have him due to the perception and momentum for recruiting, but he's not super-elite 5 star big.  He's more Dakari Johnson than Jahlil Okafor/Anthony Davis.

I'm not against OAD. I am against OAD if they're mindset is a university as a stepping stone. I want the OAD that bust his butt on and off the court for the year that he's there before moving on to the pros.

If Moses or anything other elite talent wants to rep IU the right way I'm all for them coming to campus.

I haven't watched any highlights of him or anything, but it can be hard for a big man to showcase his skills in aau, imo. They need players to get them the ball, and the run and gun style of aau isn't always conducive to that. 

AAU is just for show. And it's guard driven, which is not unlike college basketball and NBA. So yes it's difficult for a big to showcase his talents

Isn't college a stepping stone to everyone's career? Well everyone that goes to college that is?

Yes, but there seems to be a split in the mentalities of the one and done kids. Some would be playing at IU, while others would be playing for IU.
