RE: Thoughts on Josh Hoey turning pro?
1:47.67 was beaten indoors by only ten people in Division 1 this year and by 14 outdoors, so there are not literally dozens better. Of the outdoor, only two were freshmen, so he obviously has a high ceiling, although the fact that he was already coached by a pro in Terence Mahon does suggest he's closer than others. 800 phenoms have a mixed record of improvement, but with 2:24 as well, he should make a very good miler. I'd say it would have been much better for him to go to college. He will have to improve by 3 seconds just to have a shot at U.S. teams, let alone being internationally competitive. Good luck to him. He is obviously the best 800 prospect right out of hs since Brazier.
