QUOTE
“I think he has the ability to be a complete player at the next level. I actually think his offensive game will fit the next level even better than it is in college because he’s a face-up guy, an iso guy, but he can also score in the post on any mismatch. … He can guard 1 through 5, even in the NBA.”
-Villanova head coach Jay Wright
