SEC Preseason Player of the Year: John Wall

National Hoops Report Patriot League Preseason Player of the Year
John Wall, PG, Freshman, Kentucky

Move over Derrick Rose. John Wall is here.

The charismatic point guard from North Carolina is a hoops prodigy that only seems to be getting better and better every time he steps onto the floor.

Sorry, SEC. Sucks for you.

The rookie has the tools and, more importantly, the talent and coach that can help elevate him to this level so early in his young career. Some even believe Wall is the best player in the country in college basketball.

He could be. For now, however, we’ll just dub him the best player in the SEC.

The first time I watched Wall play was at the first Rbk U camp in Philadelphia. He was amazing throughout and you could see the confidence immediately take over.

I wrote: “Put the name John Wall on the high-major list for the class of 2009. The 6-foot-3 has sprinter speed and great body control when he changes of direction. Mix that all together and you have a player that was simply un-defendable from end to end. He's been the biggest revelation of the camp so far in terms of being an unknown on a national scale.

Maalik Wayns is proving himself once again at the national level.
The speedster has people talking after his proficient 17 point (6-10 FG), six rebound, four assist and three steal performance against the likes of Kenny Boynton and Brandon Knight, two of the better guards in the camp.

When looking at the 2009 group of point guards, Wall fits in nicely with the elite prospects in his class. Expect Wall to see a lot of high-major interest and a long line of coaches in tow wherever he plays for the rest of the month.”

Wall was the No. 2 ranked player in the country, according to the RSCI rankings.
