I saw this guy play almost every night his junior year and continued to watch as much as I could his senior year. He is a quick guard, good ball handling, decent spot shooter and has fast hands defensively. He is undersized but I know for a fact that drives him to go harder.

Lead the Bobcats to a sweet 16 appearance his junior season where the loss a tough game to North Carolina in OT.

He is the type of player that may make you pull your hair out one second then you love him the next. I'm biased but would love to see him make the team and compete for a back up PG position.

Also an interesting stat: He is the ONLY player in NCAA history to eclipse at least 2000 points, 900 assists, 600 rebounds, and 300 steals.

Final college stat line: 2,075 pts, 934 ast, 620 rbs and 327 steals.

Good Luck Coop!

Seems to be a guy who puts a whole lot of effort day in and day out. Would love him to be the Bazemore of the 2013-2014 season.

He is a decent play maker and likes to get out and push the ball. I'm going to keep a close eye on him throughout the summer.

Tiny shooters are a dime a dozen.

I wish him luck, but a guy his size whose not a plus-playmaker will be swimming against the current to make it in the league. Backup point is a tough task seeing as the Warriors have a potential 6MotY they'd like to retain AND they just drafted a project point. I'd love to be surprised though.

He is very much more considered a playmaker then a shooter. He's a playmaker who can shoot. He can fill a role and be a decent backup PG in this league.

He might not make it with the Warriors but I can see him landing somewhere.
