Yeah. It is just very hard to reliably evaluate a player's scoring ability (or any ability, really) coming out of highschool. The level of competition and style of play are just too wildly different to know which skills will translate and which will not. Even sure things (see: Barnes, Harrison) don't always pan out or transition as fluidly as expected. And sometimes the opposite happens, and an unheralded recruit blows everyone out of the water.

So will Amile prove to be a better scorer than Lance? If I had to guess, I would say probably; but we won't know the answer to that question for a long time.
