He can play, but I don't think it will translate to the next level. Too small - listed at 6'2 - to be a 2 guard. Doesn't necessarily make his teammates better. Not athletic enough.

Redick has improved his handle and playmaking ability tremendously over the past couple of years and is a couple of inches taller than Jimmer.

We've played him twice in the NCAA tournament ('08 and '09) and shut him down both times. In both games, A&M beat BYU fairly easy with stifling defense.

Now, that's not to say this kid hasn't improved and may in fact be an all world stud NOW, but when I saw him in person, I wasn't overly impressed.

Fredette will be a lottery pick this year. He's very athletic and a good enough ball handler to be a point in the NBA. Lights out shooter from anywhere.

Reminds me of a more physical Mark Price.
