If you are not familiar with the name Nate Wolters, you should probably take note. Wolters averaged 22.3 points, 5.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game this past season and guided the South Dakota State Jackrabbits to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances as both a junior and senior. Wolters’ time at South Dakota State has come to an end however, but with that comes the potential for a budding future at the NBA level.
Wolters has great size for the point guard position, measuring in at 6-foot-4. He can do a little bit of everything, but he didn’t necessarily do himself any favors in terms of improving his stock in the NCAA Tournament this past March. Either way, Wolters has drawn some peculiar comparisons to Steve Nash and although that may be a bit farfetched for the time being, you can see just how talented this point guard prospect really is.
Wolters is looking like a sure-fired second round selection in the 2013 NBA Draft, but he could potentially rise into the latter portion of the first if he can raise some eyebrows in pre-draft workouts.
