Khalif Wyatt Was A Beast For Temple Owls And Could Succeed In NBA

Khalif Wyatt was amazing for the Temple Owls this season and although he will likely go undrafted, he is good enough to succeed in the NBA.

Wyatt stands at 6’4”, but his production made up for it. In his senior year, he averaged 20.5 points per game, 2.9 rebounds per game and four assists per game. In case you are still worrying about his height at the next level, just stop.

Temple played two games in the 2013 NCAA Tournament and Wyatt came up huge in both of them. He dropped 31 points against North Carolina State and another 31 points against the Indiana Hoosiers. May I remind you that both teams had a bunch of future NBA talent.

Wyatt may not be looked at as a serious player to get drafted this year, which makes no sense to me. He was amazing in college. His three-point shooting could improve, since he did only make 31.6 percent from behind the arc, but he was still able to drain 75 threes on the year.

Maybe Wyatt was just a great college player, but it would seem like he has the talents to succeed at the next level. Even if he doesn’t get drafted, I would imagine that he would get signed by someone after the draft, but who really knows.

He proved that he can compete with the best of the best in the dance and that should show NBA teams that he can succeed. It is too bad that his time is up at Temple, but maybe we will get to see him play at the next level in the near future.
