Craig Brackins. JR. Iowa State
While he began to be more well known this past season, playing in Ames, Iowa will not do much justice to a college basketball star. Brackins will be just that this year, a star. Highlighted by his 42 point outburst against Kansas, Brackins did a lot to enhance his spotlight. Averaging 20 and 10 for the year with a multi faceted game, Brackins should only improve those numbers this season all while constantly being game planned for and double teamed.
Brackins was a Top 30 recruit out of High School and certainly has the NBA’s attention, turning down a sure fire first round contract this summer. To become the best player he can be and to solidify himself as a lottery pick, Brackins must show more strength around the basket and improve defensively.
