I just read a Chad Ford Insider piece about some of his observations from the ATTACK Athletics Gym in Chicago where the legendary Tim Grover was conducting workouts. Ford shares his thoughts on Kanter, Chris Singelton, JaJuan Johnson and Marshon Brooks. Most people are, by now, familiar with the first 3 and if you're like me, a lot less familiar with the 4th.
Brooks is a 6'5" 190lb SG from Providence. After reading Ford's write up I had to check out youtube. The dude can flat out score.
Here is just a snippet from the article. "Brooks was dominant this year in the Big East. He averaged 24.6 ppg while shooting an impressive 48 percent from the field. He had one of the best player efficiency ratings in the draft. He dropped 52 points on Notre Dame, 43 points on Georgetown and 33 points on Alabama. Every time he did it with scary efficiency. In the 52-point outburst against Notre Dame he was 20-for-28 from the field. He also proved to be a terrific rebounder, recording seven double-doubles this season."

Some mock drafts don't have him being taken and some (like Chad Ford) rank him as high as 22. Where will he actually go on draft day? Will he still be available if/when we pick at #20. Are you familiar with his name/game? If not, check him out.
