Dion Waiters, G, Syracuse, Soph.
Waiters continues to be an integral piece of Syracuse’s unbeaten run due to his breakout sophomore season. He has become the Orange’s best player due to his ability to score the basketball from the outside or attack the rim, and his tenacity on the defensive end. I actually see a little bit of a young Dwyane Wade in Waiters at times. He would certainly be a first round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and could possibly sneak into the late lottery if he continues to play at a high level.
