Montrezl Harrell's decision to return to Louisville for his junior season was one of the most shocking decisions of all the draft-eligible players this year, and the power forward will certainly have to impress in college next season to prevent his draft stock from falling.
Had Harrell entered the 2014 NBA draft, ESPN Insider Chad Ford had him projected to be a late lottery pick. The rugged 6-foot-8, 235-pounder is currently ranked No. 12 on Ford's early 2015 Big Board, right on the fringe of the lottery. So what does he have to do to improve his game and solidify a spot in next summer's lottery? ESPN Insider Fran Fraschilla believes Harrell must carve out more of an identity on the glass.
