ESPN scouting report. Sure sounds like the kind of kid Buzz says he wants.

Strengths:
A physically imposing guard, Wilson is built like a tank with terrific muscle mass and definition. He plays the game with a warrior's mentality, competing with toughness and intensity on both ends of the ball. He has an aggressive scorer's mindset, constantly looking to attack the defense, and able to put points on the board both by overpowering defenders en route to the rim or also from the perimeter with a much improved skill set. He will also rise to challenges defensively, using his upper body strength and physicality to keep his man from getting to his sweet spots.

Weaknesses:
While Wilson typically plays with the ball in his hands at the moment, he isn't a pure point guard, and projects as a scoring combo at the next level at best. He needs to prove that he can make decisions and get the team into their offense while handling the ball against pressure in the backcourt. He is probably most naturally suited to play off the ball but is undersized at that position. He also isn't overly quick or bouncy and so he can have occasional defensive problems away from the basket and rarely finishes above the rim.

Bottom Line:
What Wilson lacks in height, quickness, and bounce he makes up for with power, intensity, and aggressiveness. While he isn't the type of pure point guard who makes his teammates better with his ability to facilitate offense, he leads by example with his toughness and work ethic and makes his teammates better by forcing them to raise the bar. He needs to continue to develop his point guard skill set and improve his ability to run a team in a half court set.

Did you hear those teams mentioned? That was back in June.
Glad to have you in Blue and Gold, Derrick!  :D

Sounds a lot like junior.  Love the offers from nd, ga tech, bc, syracuse and st. John's etc., and 19 ppg, 9 asp, 6 steals and 7 rpg as a junior sounds strong in st connecticut.  Also, for those of you who want mu to take up football again, looks like he had d1 offers at running back too!

I'll take a solid offer list over number of stars any day of the week.  The offer from Syracuse makes me feel pretty good about the commit.

Going to college on the East Coast, The Hotchkiss School is a serious boarding school. So the kid will have no academic problems!

A nice big man would make this a fantastic recruiting class.  We now have our deepest roster in years..

I'm still on the fence about this one. Another 6-1 guard wasn't high on my list, but if Buzz thinks he can play, I give him the benefit of the doubt.

I'd love to see him bring in Breunig. That way you have one big time player, one depth guy, and a low-risk guy to develop.

Hopefully we can get a gift from God  ;)

In all seriousness, this is a good idea. Every time Buzz talks about this season he says he is worried about PG it seems.  We don't want to go back to the days when Marcus Jackson or Fitz brought it up.  We have been spoiled by Diener, DJ, and Mo, but we cannot take PG for granted.  This kid sounds like he adds a nice dimension in strength.  Glad to have him.

We have to land at least land a descent big for our last schollie. MU should be extremely attractive, as the Big man has the opportunity to earn/play a lot of minutes as a freshman! Get Er Done Buzz!

With his size and football background he makes me think he could be a larger Tony Miller....  One of our best pure point guards ever.

Joseph Treutlein

Derrick Wilson was one of the nicer surprises of the first two days, showing a very impressive game for a sophomore point guard, pouring in 30 points in 30 minutes on 11-for-22 shooting, while also pulling in 7 rebounds, dishing out 4 assists, and making 2 blocks and 2 steals.

Wilson isn't super athletic for a point guard, though considering he has a little baby fat to lose, and is already 6'2 as a sophomore, it's way too early to conclude that he has any limitations physically, as he's clearly not done growing and clearly is nowhere near his athletic potential. Regardless, he makes very good use of his strong frame now, and doesn't let his lack of top-end speed hold him back, showing an excellent grasp of speed and direction changes, putting on a nice display of dribble-driving here.

He went exclusively to the right in his one game here, though he never made it seem that way, as he incorporated pivots, hop steps, hesitation dribbles, hand changes, and other moves to throw off his defender, while going all the way to the rim on some occasions and pulling up in the lane on others. His repertoire on the dribble-drive at this age is very impressive, and even more so is his ability to use it. He also shows good body control and ability to adjust in traffic, but even though he makes good use of the high glass on some of his attempts, his finishing ability leaves a little to be desired, though it's in part due to his just average explosiveness.

Wilson didn't rely on his jump shot much, so it's hard to accurately assess it, but his form looked fairly solid on the few attempts we saw. He hit just 1-of-3 from behind the arc, though the one make was a rushed shot at the end of the shot clock that he luckily banked in.

As a point guard, Wilson showed no problems bringing the ball up the floor, handling pressure well, moving the ball around, and making a few simple drive-and-kicks. It's questionable how good his vision and his ability to create for others are, being hard to judge on a team that obviously relies on his scoring.

Looking forward, Wilson appears to have a successful future ahead of him, showing good maturity at his age with a well-developed skill set, while he's also already 6'2 with decent athleticism as a high school sophomore. If he can grow a few inches and/or improve his quickness/explosiveness, he could turn into an interesting prospect, especially if he continues to expand his skill set.

Am I being unfair in having an initial reaction that wonders if the combination of starting Buycks at the point Saturday and signing Wilson might somehow be an indicator that Buzz is concerned that Junior might not be the anchor point guard for the next 3 years? I hope it is unfounded, but it really was my first thought at the news.
