Notes: Insider Only

Summary: Notes: The Conference USA Player of the Year this season. Averaged 16 ppg and 5.5 apg (second in C-USA), 2.1 spg for the season. He tallied four triple doubles in assists and points this season.

Positives: He's a super fast point guard who knows how to break his man down off the dribble and get to the basket. He's a good finisher around the basket. Can create his own shot. Solid decision maker. Keeps turnovers to a minimum. Nice shot selection lead to a 47 percent shooting percentage. Dramtically improved his three point shooting his senior season shooting 41 percent from behind the arc. A good defender. Has a rugged body.

Negatives: He's a terrible free throw shooter for a point guard. He made just 63 percent from the charity stripe this season. Can get a little too focused at times on finding his own shot. Not a pure point guard, but he was moving in theat direction by the end of his senior season.

Insider projection: He'll be one of the first point guards off the board in the second round. His play in the Chicago pre-draft camp was limited because of a mild injury. A team like the Grizzlies or Pistons would love to have him in the fold.
