Babbitt is ranked No. 31 overall in Rivals.com's Class of 2008, but he's the highest-rated prospect to attend a mid-major school. The hometown product (he played for Reno's Galena High) will be joining a Wolf Pack team that just lost its two leading scorers, Marcelus Kemp and JaVale McGee, so there's an immediate need for Babbitt to become a major part of the offense.
