During the Adidas Nations tournament in California earlier this month, Arizona State star Jahii Carson impressed observers who watched the between-game runs featuring college players working as counselors.
The Sun Devil sophomore-to-be subsequently was saluted by Dime Magazine, which put the following video on its website and suggested the former Mesa High star could be the top collegiate point guard in the nation:
The salvo of mock lists already taking aim at the 2014 NBA Draft have Jahii going as high as 17th (draftexpress.com) and as low as 38th (NBADraft.net).
According to typical conjecture from draft savants, Carson was wise to return for his sophomore season at ASU. But many of the same sharpies presume Jahiis height (about 5-foot-10) is his major challenge in attempting to be selected even higher.
For his sake, lets hope Carson gets taller through the process of spending another year in Tempe.
