Few players have ever made as big a jump from freshman to sophomore year as Michael Carter-Williams has made.
After not playing much as a freshman behind Kris Joseph and Scoop Jardine, MCW exploded onto the national scene this season. He leads the nation in assists per game with 10.1 and is averaging a double-double with his 12.2 points per game, as well.
As a 6'5” point guard, he has exceptional size for the position and that has helped him grab 4.6 rebounds per game. He also possesses the court vision and passing ability necessary to be an elite point guard in the NBA, as well as the shooting touch to be a dual-threat.
Let's not forget about this kid's defense, as well. He is very disruptive in Jim Boeheim's 2-3 zone, and his quickness has allowed him to snatch up 3.0 steals per game.
My best comparison for Carter-Williams is to Rajon Rondo. He is a stat-stuffer just like Rondo, who can help his team in a lot of ways. Whether it's dishing out assists, grabbing rebounds, forcing turnovers or scoring himself, MCW can dominate the game in many ways, and he will likely be a top pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
