While AP did nothing wrong or creepy, unlike Wood(allegedly), the list brings to mind what hasn't quite gone right. AP should be getting ready for an NBA career not appearing on lists with other underachievers. I'm thinking Coach Izzo thought the same thing when he secured AP's commitment. Already flush with bigs and hot after Matt Costello as a future prodigy, the thinking had to be that the athletic big man with a jumpa wouldn't be around long. In fact 18 of the top 35 RSCI prospects in 2010, where AP came in at #27, are currently in the NBA or expected to be picked in June.
My hope is that AP joins them sooner rather than later or not at all. My hope is that AP has an even greater sophomore to junior season leap than did Derrick Nix. Should be possible as long as he avoids more accidents. Then hopefully AP finds himself on some more desirable top 10 lists. As in 1st or 2nd team All B1G followed by 10 best big men in the 2013 NBA draft.
