Brockman and expectations

Several people have weighed in here on Jon Brockman’s season and whether it has lived up to expectations — I must say I’m impressed by the intelligence of the people commenting on this site. I’m glad about that since sometimes such discussions can digress quickly, but that hasn’t happened here too much.
I pretty much agree with the likes of Rico and others who say that this is a pretty typical first season for a freshman.
Keep in mind, Jon is still averaging 9.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and shooting 52 percent from the field — not bad numbers at all overall.
Also, Jon may turn out to be a big scorer eventually, but I don’t think UW’s coaches envisioned him being a big scorer right off the bat. Some of it is his personality — he’s so unselfish, he had to be talked into taking over games during his high school days. So he’s naturally deferring this year to the seniors. I think he’ll take a big leap scoring next season.
As for his recruiting hype, one reason he was so valued is that most coaches considered him a four-year guy — a player who has the type of game to be a big-time contributor for four years, but not necessarily the type of game that would be enticing to NBA scouts before his college years were over.
As for how the coaches view him? The most telling comment surely came from Lorenzo Romar last week when he said that in reviewing the starting lineup, the only two players sure to keep their jobs were Brandon Roy and Jon Brockman.
