Good to see that most of us are coming around to see that Gesell is the best in the state. Akoy will have his day, just not while Mike is in school.

Today, Gesell is a better college prospect than Agau, However, it still remains to be seen as to which one will ultimately become a better college player at their respective position.
Gesell is certainly a more polished college prospect, while Agau shows tremendous potential due to his athleticism, length and shot blocking ability. Agau already possesses the base tools to at least become a very effective defensive player at the next level. But if defense is going to be his calling card he will need to become a much better rebounder too. He could greatly benefit his game by committing to a serious offseason conditioning program to build strength and add bulk and spending a lot of quality time working to improve his offensive skills as well as enhancing his defensive prowess and then banging heads in pickup games with college-level players—every second focusing on all the things he wants to improve upon.
A lot of quality gym time and—focus—could turn all that potential into something really special.
