    I thought I’d share this with those who don’t have access to ESPN Insider.  Jay Bilas listed CJ as his #8 NBA Draft prospect and provided a nice summary of his talents.

    8. C.J. McCollumLehigh Mountain Hawks: McCollum was the best guard at the Nike Skills Academy this summer, and won almost every matchup he had against other quality players in this year’s draft class. He is not a superior athlete, but has good quickness with the ball and is an excellent perimeter defender. McCollum is very smart, can really score in the open floor or in half-court sets and is a good rebounder for a guard. At 21 years old, McCollum is mature and closer to who he will be in the future than some of the other NBA prospects. But he is still pretty darn good right now.

    I think a really good argument could be made that we are watching the best college player in the nation this season.  Of course, NBA Draft is about projecting, but if we were choosing sides in a 5 on 5 in a game this season, CJ might be the number 1 pick.
