4 AAC Non-Seniors are in Top 31 of ESPN Top 100 Prospects for 2018 Draft
http://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/...pects-2018

Has 4 underclassmen prospects in the Top 31 of Top 100.

#24 Jacob Evans (Jr.)
#27 Melvin Frazier (Jr.)
#29 Landry Shamet (RS-So.)
#31 Shake Milton (Jr.)

Jacob Evans has gone flying up the boards. Evans and Shamet will likely continue to rise/stabilize as their teams make runs in conference and NCAA tournament. All 4 will clearly test their value at the combine.

It seems pretty clear Foster, McDuffie, and Rose will all be back.

Whatever Frazier decides is a win-win for Tulane.

If he stays we have a real shot at 20 wins next year. If he leaves we can sell recruits on dunleavy’s ability to coach up kids into the nba

Do they post any evals/analysis for the AAC players in this article?

If so, could you share on here for the non-insiders?

Tons on Jacob Evans. Not anything on the others. They had a good one on Frazier a few weeks ago.

Although he's posting similar numbers to last season as a 20-year-old junior, Evans is steadily improving his stock thanks to his impact on a winning Cincinnati team that has emerged as a legitimate Final Four contender. We evaluated Evans live in a hostile Charles Koch Center on Sunday as the Bearcats defeated Wichita State on the road to secure the AAC regular-season title. Evans played a big part in the Cincinnati win, scoring 19 points on 16 shots, snaring seven boards and proving his worth as a multipositional defender.

Evans' game doesn't pop off the hardwood, but at 6-foot-6, 210 pounds with a 6-9-plus wingspan, a smooth catch-and-shoot stroke, defensive versatility and a strong feel for the game, he's the type of prospect teams may target in the late first round of the 2018 draft.

"I feel like I bring versatility," Evans told ESPN. "I can shoot the ball at a high rate. I can defend. I can also play-make. That's underestimated. I always try to be a great defender. Being 6-6 and playing on the wing I try to be able to guard multiple guards, and also I'm able to handle the ball at my height. I feel like the more games we play, high-level teams, the rest of the season I'm going to show that."

March performances can often unfairly skew an overall evaluation, but for a potential role players like Evans, proving how he can contribute to winning deep into the NCAA tournament could certainly continue to boost his stock.

Evans has come a long way since arriving in Cincinnati as a "little chubby 17-year-old kid, wide-eyed, wanting to learn," according to the Louisiana native who comes from a football family and military background. The former RSCI No. 125 recruit has made incremental improvements every season, and he is playing more on the ball as a junior, regularly initiating offense in the half court. Evans grew up playing on the ball since he first started taking basketball seriously in eighth grade, and that shows in his feel for the game and sound overall court vision.

"I try to study everybody," Evans said. "I don't want to just be a shooter. I don't want to just be a rebounder or a defender. I want to be a basketball player. Basketball player you gotta be able to dribble, pass, shoot and defend and also rebound."

While the improved on-ball skill is a plus (17.9 percent of his offense coming in pick-and roll, according to Synergy), Evans figures to make the most impact at the NBA level as a spot shooter and defender in the 3-and-D mold. He can be a bit streaky as a shooter, but he has excellent balance and rotation on his jumper, which has shown in his 40.9 3-point percentage on 4.4 attempts per game, his second consecutive season over 40 percent. Evans also can make occasional isolation pull-ups against switches, but he plays mostly at one speed and isn't the most dynamic shot creator or finisher, as evident by his 47.9 2-point percentage.

Defensively, Evans is tough and competitive, with the lateral quickness to guard 2s and some 1s, and the frame to check big wings as well. His size, length and strength allow him to slide up in smaller lineups and guard 3s and 4s without too much of an issue, which gives him great versatility in today's NBA. The Bearcats rank second in the NCAA in defensive efficiency according to Kenpom.com, and Evans figures to carry that with him at the next level.

"My dad, he was in the military. Discipline, that was key," Evans said. "I love coaches like [Mick Cronin], being tough on you. That brings the best out of you, especially if you can be strong-minded." --Mike Schmitz

melvin is interesting
espn's 1 draft guy is extremely high on him, but most other nba draft people arent

zero had him in any projections before espns put him on, and now some put him low 2nd round

im not sure if he is really considered a high prospect or if this one guy at espn is mking a reach

i think he declares without an agent and comes back..

i think evans stock will rise depending on how he does in the tourney..if hee makes a name for himself (like curry did) he is gone forsure, i think he s declaring regardless..but there is a high chance he comes back (stock is currently low second)if he doesnt raise his stock

tacko should be back, shamet and milton are gone regardless

I hope for the sake of WSU that Shamet comes back. He along with McDuffie and Reaves can keep us competitive. Without him we may be starting 3 freshmen.

Agree with Pesik. Would be shocked if Shake or Shamet are back. They could come back, but they aren't going to improve their stock much more. Both could improve some numbers here or there, but they are what they are (Smooth Combo Guards who can play 1 or 2 and shoot the 3 at a very high percentage and are solid defenders). Both have some limitations, but another season isn't going to drastically improve that.

So unless one of them gets hurt or just has a terrible combine I would bet they are both gone. I would think Evans goes too, unless Cincy has an early exit and he struggles. NBA loves 3&D guys like Evans who can defend multiple spots and he seems like he would test very well at the combine.

I agree on Frazier, but like Evans I could see him testing very well at the combine.

I hate to wreck your dreams, brother, but Evans is perhaps the most likely AAC player of all to go. He is consistently ranked higher in the mocks than anyone else here.
