No player in the country has made a quicker projected leap into the lottery than Michael Carter-Williams, who inexplicably leads the country in assists at 9.6 per game.
He's proven that he's capable of being a primary ball-handler, and despite initial questions over his position, he looks like the most natural point guard in the class.
Another facet of his game that might go overlooked is defense. His incredible size and length for a point guard has him averaging 3.6 steals a game, good for third in the country.
Because of his arms, quickness and athleticism, Carter-Williams is able to get to any spot on the floor and consistently create scoring opportunities.
If he sustains this type of production throughout Big East play, it would be hard to imagine many point guards being considered over him.
