WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB
DRAFT EXPRESS
A physically gifted player with an excellent frame and terrific instincts, Waiters' aggressive defense definitely fuels this area of his game by creating opportunities, but he does a very good job keeping his head up and attacking when his team has a numbers advantage. He's very crafty with the ball in his hands and does a good job of using his shiftiness going to the basket; switching the ball between hands and showing a very good feel for weaving through defenses. While not exceptionally quick or fast, Waiters has perhaps helped himself most here by showing a good commitment to using his well-built frame to go hard to the basket, frequently finishing with power and playing with a real mean streak on the break.

ESPN - CHAD FORD
Waiters is one of the most electric scorers in the country. He's a terrific athlete who is relentless when it comes to taking the ball to the basket. Although he is a bit undersized, needs to work on his jumper and has the reputation of being a bit selfish at times, he's a big-time talent.
