    If he was a 6'4" PG I could see one and done. But he's a 6'1" combo guard. You have to be amazing to go after one year at that size, especially not being a true PG imo.

    Maybe that's why he plans on staying more than a year, to work on his PG skills under a great PG coach. Weird

    Royce was rs sophomore with a tenuous past, but he was on boards prior to his freshman year.

    You're consistently very optimistic on guys (also frequently wrong) so I'll stop. I mean, Steele Jantz is probably going to finally get drafted, right?

    Didn't you just say there's a lot of guys who have the talent that don't pan out? Weird. Jantz had the talent and anyone with half a brain could see it. If he focused more on football than parties he might have lived up to it. I'm pretty sure you're one of the same people who gave me **** when I said Irving would be in the NFL too, but I'm sure you don't want to talk about that.

    If he has a Tyus Jones type of March run, he could be a one and done. Everyone wins in that scenario. But I agree, he'll probably be here for at least two years.

    This guy gets it. I wouldn't be shocked if he's here three years, which is less likely. I would be shocked if he's here four years though.

    If Wigginton is good enough to leave Iowa State early to go to the NBA then I would be pleased. It would mean that he is good enough to at least be a mid-first round NBA Draft Pick. Our last first rounder was Royce White.

    WOAH! Good catch twins! Silly me for selling him WAY short.

    Still, at that size he'll have to show he can run the point at a high level to be one and done. He sure as hell isn't going first round as a SG at 6'2".

    But I do hope we have a ***Official LW NBA Draft Declaration Thread*** at this time next because like others have said, he would've had a great year if we are having that conversation.

    Well it's kind of a gray area. I don't think he would be a first rounder next year, but there are 60+ UNDERCLASSMEN a year told they have a first round grade and leave early... when there's only 60 picks in the draft and also seniors(not as many) and foreigners getting drafted.

    He will be a pg. It's obvious as to why he wants to be a pg, 6'2" shooting guards that are not great shooters have limited draft upside.

    ...that played off the ball in HS. He isn't a PG until he proves he is at the college level.

    Sure.

    He's definitely not going to get to the NBA as a sg. Hopefully he develops into a high level pg quickly. I think he will.

    There's truth to that, and particularly with guys that are needing to change positions as they move up a level.

    I think he'll be a better pg at this level than a sg, as finishing/shooting may not be a strength as much as creating for others.

    You're smarter than this twins. He didn't even have full time point guard duties in high school. He's got a ways to go before anyone is going to even think about drafting him next year. I would love for that to change over the coarse of next season.
