Nate Wolters

Tonight at 9 pm (est), the Western Illinois Leathernecks will take on the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in the Summit League championship game in Sioux Falls, SD on ESPN2. This doesn't sound like too much of an appealing game, but if I may make a suggestion, flip over for a little bit and watch #3 from SDSU, junior guard Nate Wolters.

Wolters was not heavily recruited out of high school (he's from St. Cloud, MN) but has blossomed into one of the most electric players in college basketball. He is eighth in the nation in scoring (21.5 ppg) and also leads the team in assists (6.1),rebounds (5.1), and steals (1.7). At 6'3" he creates matchup problems with most PG's. While he won't dazzle you with his quickness, Nate is loaded with athleticism and he puts it on display night after night.

Wolters is coming off a 22 point outing vs IUPUI on Saturday and a 30 point outburst in the semifinals last night against Southern Utah. DraftExpress.com currently projects him as the 49th pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, with his stock certainly rising and one more year to improve it even more.

Obviously you can tell I'm a big fan of Wolters, and yes, I'm somewhat of a homer living about 45 minutes from the SDSU campus, but believe me, the kid can play. If you won't take my word for it, check out the Summit League Championship, live from Sioux Falls, SD at 9 pm (est) tonight on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com. Naters gonna Nate.
