Honeycutt is projected as a first-round pick. Where he goes from there depends is simple: "His NBA career is going to be decided on his commitment to the weight room," UCLA assistant coach Scott Garson said.
Honeycutt was voted first-team All-Pac-10 after leading the Bruins to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
18.2 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 2.8 apg, 3.0 tpg, 2.0 bpg, 35.0 mpg, .406 FG, .362 3PT, .736 FT
Honeycutt, who logged most of his time at the three spot, led the Pac-10 in blocked shots. His 68 rejections were nine more than runner-up DeAngelo Casto of Washington State.

What Insiders Say:
UCLA assistant coach Scott Garson
"Tyler's got a whole bunch of tools on his tool belt. Which one of them is he gonna do well? That's the question."
What Outsiders Say:
Kansas coach Bill Self
"Honeycutt had a great night, he was very good tonight [after scoring 33 points against the Jayhawks]. He was by far the best player in the game."
