The Miami Hurricanes are losing their leading scorer in Shane Larkin. He is definitely not the only good player who will no longer be on the team and Miami is in rebuilding mode. With that said, who will lead the team in scoring in the 2013-14 college basketball season?
How about Angel Rodriguez. Rodriguez played for Kansas State last season and he managed to score 11.4 points per game. He also averaged 5.2 assists per game.
Rodriguez is a great point guard and he will be a good replacement for Larkin, but he is also going to have to be more of a scorer for the Hurricanes. This team loses the most talent in the ACC and will go from a top 10 team in college hoops to a team that will likely not even finish in the top five in the conference standings.
Rodriguez shot 36.1 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from behind the arc. He made 55 threes last season and making even more in the upcoming season would be huge.
Miami needs other players to have big seasons as well, but Rodriguez is arguably the most talented player on the team and one of the best point guards in the ACC. Now it is time to see him lead the Hurricanes in scoring and see him make a huge impact for the team.
Only time will tell if that will actually be the case, but he has to be the No. 1 candidate for leading the team in scoring as of right now. With that in mind, there is a pretty decent recruiting class coming in.
