1. Nance: Looked like a tree among ferns. 7 ft tall, huge wingspan, nice shooting stroke, good passer, gained muscle in off-season. Plausible upside is NBA--highest ceiling of any player I've seen at NU in 25 yrs. 2. Beran: Looks like Nance 2.0 but slightly more confident. He is so similar to Nance, you can see why both were in the top 75 player range. Same upside as Nance. 3. Jones: On physique alone, the most powerfully built kid I've seen entering NU. Huge upside, but pretty raw. Has an NBA body and has plausible upside of being a very good big ten big man. 4. Buie: Quick, can create off the dribble, something we haven't had in a long time even with BMac who wasn't that quick. Needs a lot of strength and consistency, but plausible upside is top 3 or 4 big ten PG. 5. Kopp. Big, strong, plays hard, nice shot if he can get more consistent with it. Could be a 3rd team all big ten kid if it comes together for him. 6. Young: The big fundamental. Makes the most of what he's got, could be a very good big ten big man (honorable mention all big ten may be his plausible upside). Not including the older guys but Spencer can definitely play overseas and may improve dramatically. Long term shot at a guy like Matt Delavedova who got to the league through sheer heart and toughness. Gaines can play overseas, can play defense and rebound with any guard, just hasn't developed his offensive game much. Turner is a bit of a mystery but could be a nice overseas guy too.
