Whenever you see a national writer say that a certain scout told him something about a certain player, 99% of the time, it means:
1) The scout is trolling the writer and spreading misinformation.
2) The writer found a narrative he likes and is cherry picking input.
3) The writer is fabricating a quote to fit a narrative.
Opinions on players differ to the point where if you talk to enough scouts, you can basically get any opinion that you’re looking for whenever you want to.
