Even more on Wilcox

Here’s a good story on the newest Husky, C.J. Wilcox, from his hometown newspaper, the Provo Daily Herald.
I’m not sure, however, about the phrase that Wilcox is one of three guards UW plans to sign in November. The author may be confused with the fact that UW signed three guards last November.
Two interesting notes in the story:
— Wilcox indicates he would be open to redshirting his first year, which would further remove him from the three guards who arrive this year.
— He can touch 11-6 from a flat-footed start.
The story also reiterates a lot else I’ve heard and seen that Wilcox is regarded as a late-bloomer (he turns 18 in December) who may turn out to be a lot better than he is ranked at the moment.
I got a note yesterday with a similar theme from Dave Hammer, Wilcox’s coach with the Salt Lake Metro AAU team, who wrote that “We have chosen to have him attend only a few tournaments and have him focus on player development instead of random tournament attendance. As a result, he is a better player but not as well known on the national circuit. Salt Lake Metro has been around since 1995 and has produced more than 60 D-1 players. C J is one of the top players the program has produced.”
