Sam Dekker, a 5-star recruit, looks and plays a lot like Gordon Heyward. Yet it'll take a few years until the Wisconsin-bound forward truly develops.
The long and skinny Dekker, like Glenn Robinson III, needs to, first and foremost, get bigger.
There are whispers that Bo Ryan could play Dekker at the four position, which would result in nothing short of a bullying.
Dekker is tall enough at 6'8", but is real skinny and would get absolutely destroyed by Big Ten forwards like Mitch McGary and Deshaun Thomas.
If he plays SF, Dekker would need to become a much quicker on-ball defender, so at either position, he needs to improve.
Dekker has a great jump shot, is excellent in transition and has incredible instincts and fundamentals. However, he needs at least a full year of experience and some time in the weight room before he makes a difference for Wisconsin.
