    Brian, is this guy Lee Mazzilli’s son?  Having said that, I still don’t get the rationale for him being ranked ahead of guys such as Stanford’s Rugira or Rice’s Kubitza.  Sorry, but it makes no sense.

      It is Lee’s son….The kid has hit both seasons at UConn dealing with an arm injury as a freshman and now becoming an everyday starter for the Huskies. He will have much more pressure on him this season.
