Star point guard Jimmer Fredette has shot his Brigham Young University Cougars into college basketball relevance, while also shooting his name up 2011 NBA mock draft boards.

Fredette is a fantastic scorer that possesses a knack at penetrating the defense with a sick crossover and his even more impressive basketball IQ.

While Fredette may be neither the most explosive, nor most athletic player on the floor, he holds his own by using hard work and determination to transform himself into a fearless player. This has certainly helped his name skyrocket in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Projected to go No. 10 overall to the Milwaukee Bucks, Fredette will bring with him a terrific leadership opportunity. He'll also bring his ability to score from anywhere on the floor to a team that is in need of a scoring punch off their bench.

Fredette has reportedly already worked out for the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder, but none would promise him a first-round selection.

So now we can ask ourselves this pressing question: How many guards will be selected before BYU’s Jimmer Fredette?
