No. 21 – Tony Wroten Jr, Freshman, Washington; 2011-12 stats: 16 ppg, 5 rpg, 3.7 apg, 44% shooting
LOS ANGELES, CA – MARCH 08: Tony Wroten #14 of the Washington Huskies reacts in the second half while taking on the Oregon State Beavers during the quarterfinals of the 2012 Pacific Life Pac-12 basketball tournament at Staples Center on March 8, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
As another highly touted freshman, Tony Wroten Jr, put together a solid season before deciding to throw his name into the pool of Draft prospects. In doing my research on him, most mock drafts have Wroten landing in the mid to late first round, which is where I would have him pegged. In terms of basketball and pure talent, Wroten might be a top 10-guy. He’s a strong and physical point guard, and at 6-6 he has the chance to overpower some guards in the NBA as soon as he steps onto the court.
He gets to the rim at a relentless pace and finished at a high rate. Like Marquis Teague, he has incredible court vision for such a young player. Being a 6-6 point guard, its gives him a great advantage when he will have a height advantage on many of his adversaries. Along with his vision, he is also a great passer. Those are skills that are going to be his best entering the NBA.
