I'm watching the Wichita St. vs Illinois St. game in the MVC conference tournament, and I must say I think Jackie Carmichael has pro potential.
He's a big guy at 6'9'' 240lbs and has showcased very solid in game athleticism. The replayed a shot, in which he blocked a shot and his head was just a couple inches below the rim. He's kind of a bruiser forward, and a really productive rebounder. He's a 4 year guy, like most MVC players, but watch out for him next year. 13.4 ppg 9.5 rpg and a 70% FT shooter in his Junior season. Potential 2nd rounder in 13.
That was a great finish to the Illinois St v Wichita St game.
Some more guys like Carmichael who could reach the second round next year from mid or low major conferences:
Darryl Patin, G Boston University
Frantz Massenat, PG Drexel
Keith Rendelman, F UNC-Wilmington
Alec Brown, C Wisconsin-Green Bay
Zeke Marshall, C Akron
Robert Covington, PF Tennessee St
CJ Mccollum, SG Lehigh
Nate Wolters, PG South Dakota St
Chris Udofia, F Denver
Kevin Foster, SG Santa Clara
Great finish, and WSU is a very good team. It was a mixed bag for me, I usually cheer for WSU, but Janovich is a former KU assistant, so I was a little back and forth, lol.
I've followed Alec Brown this season, to see how he's improved. The guy really needs to gain weight, but if he does, I think he could be a legit pro prospect. He's only a sophomore and he did the Amare or the Lebron camp last summer so that indicates he's committed to playing at the next level.
