NBA projection: Carson has been projected as a second-round pick.
Carson earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors for the second consecutive season as he led the Sun Devils to a 21-21 record and their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2009. ASU’s record at home was 16-1, its best in 40 years.
Key statistics: 18.6 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 4.6 apg, 0.7 spg, 3.5 tpg, 35.4 mpg, .433 FG, .391 3PT, .719 FT
Cool statistic: Carson averaged 18.5 points and 5.1 assists in 2012-13, the first freshman to do that since Chris McGuthrie (19.8, 5.1) of Mount St. Mary's in 1992-93.

What Insiders Say
Arizona State coach Herb Sendek
“Jahii made an incredible impact on our program over the past two seasons and was a huge part of the success we achieved as a team.”
What Outsiders Say
Arizona coach Sean Miller
“[Carson is] an electric player, a fun guy to watch. He gets the ball out in transition. He gets his teammates easy shots, and then you look at how easy it is for him to get to the foul line and score.”
