I followed the World University Games a little bit and was really disappointed at some of the roster selections (aaron white is horrible, alex kirk not much better) but it dawned on me after watching 2 of the games that Cory Jefferson is pretty damn good, in fact he outplayed Adreian Payne for the majority of the tournament and sparked the team with energy, offensive rebounding, and ability to score in the paint. He, in my opinion, was the best big on this team (im considering mcdemott a 3 in this case, and he was undoubtedly the best player on this team) and I think if Jefferson has a nice season and measures well at the combine, he should be a late 1st round pick in the 2014 draft
Strength, length, rebounding, defense, hustling big man. Yes please. Said I would take him over C. Zeller at the beginning of last year. Since then, improving post moves, footwork, and mid-range game. Love him.
Watch out for Baylor next year Isaiah Austin and Cory Jefferson are gonna be a great big man duo
Reminds me of Thomas Robinson. They're almost physical duplicates. TRob was drafted too high, but I still think he can have a nice career. I think Jefferson is a 14-20 range pick if he continues where he left off last year.
Ok I'm happy to see that others are really high on Jefferson too
