"In the past two weeks, I've had no fewer than five NBA scouts and a couple of GMs e-mail, text or call me asking why Wilcox wasn't higher on our Top 100. He's having a terrific season at Washington, averaging 19.1 points per game and shooting nearly 42 percent from 3-point land. He's got decent size (6-foot-5, 195 pounds) for his position, is an excellent athlete and has improved every year at Washington. Before Saturday's meltdown versus Utah, he had led Washington to a surprising 4-0 start in the Pac-12. For a team looking for an athletic 2 who can really stroke the basketball, he's a nice option. If Wilcox has a weakness right now it's his age. He just turned 22 years old, which is one-to-two years older than most of the players in his class. NBA teams tend to factor age significantly into their draft analysis. The older a player, the more teams tend to pin his success on maturity over basketball acumen. We've moved Wilcox up considerably the past few weeks and he now sits at No. 36 in our Top 100. A strong finish to the season could nail him down a spot in the first round."
