Vander Blue has the most NBA talent on the Marquette roster. The freshman is averaging 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.9 steals per game. Vander played on the U18 Team USA this summer and lead his team to a Gold Medal win over Brazil. Blue competed with some of the best players his age all over the world.
His decision to go to Marquette came after he had verbally committed to Wisconsin.
Vander has a style of play that reminds me of Brandon Jennings, yes Brandon is my favorite player and Blue is my favorite college player but I watch them both a lot. And Blue has the same style of play that Jennings does. There both quick guards, who can rebound, steal, and make shots.
Vander could be a Top 10 pick in the 2012 or 2013 Drafts. He has a good team around him right now and could lead the Golden Eagles on a NCAA tournament run in the next few years. He has the skills a good NBA guard needs, he just needs to stay with Marquette for another few seasons to continue to develop.
