Pick 6: Transfer quarterbacks who could make a big impact

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 15:52:09 UT

Zaire is no lock to be the Gators' starter when they open against Michigan in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. [...] if coach Jim McElwain and the Gators really felt good about redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks, then Zaire probably would not be going to school in Gainesville. In 19 games with Texas A&M, Allen threw 33 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions. Peterman thrived last year with Matt Canada as offensive coordinator, but now former Louisville and Texas assistant Shawn Watson is directing Pitt's offense. Harris rarely looked like the four-star recruit he was out of high school during his three seasons at LSU, completing 53.7 percent of his passes in 22 games (15 starts). At North Carolina, the spread offense Larry Fedora runs should be more to Harris' liking. Mountaineers fans are excited, but it should be noted that Grier's resume includes four SEC games: one sensational performance against Ole Miss and three OK outings against Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri. Lee seems a better fit for Cornhuskers coach Mike Riley's offense than departed starter Tommy Armstrong, but it's fair to be skeptical about his ceiling. Stidham was a four-star recruit who started three games as a freshman at Baylor and looked pretty good (934 yards passing, six touchdowns and 63 percent completions). Stidham sat out last season, giving him plenty of time to learn Gus Malzahn's spread offense.

A look at all-time UW, WSU 1st-round NBA draft picks

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 19:39:37 UT

Markelle Fultz is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday. If so, Fultz would become the first-ever top pick from the University of Washington.

Markelle Fultz set for the stage of being No. 1 pick

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:20:19 UT

In the often unpredictable world of the NBA, there is some symmetry in Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons likely becoming teammates as pros. Barring an unforeseen change, Fultz will be the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night, joining Simmons with the Philadelphia 76ers in an attempt to invigorate a once proud franchise. Two stars worthy of the top pick in consecutive years, neither of which was able to lead their college programs to team success in their one season on campus. LSU didn't reach the NCAA Tournament in Simmons' lone year in Baton Rouge before becoming the top pick by the Sixers last year, and Washington finished 9-22 this season with Fultz. Fultz is a natural talent on the court that moves with fluidity and ease, and his abilities and tendencies have been dissected heavily heading into Thursday's draft. "When I'm on the court, I feel at peace really," Fultz said in an interview last October with the Associated Press. Kelsey Plum, the former Huskies guard and NCAA all-time scoring leader in women's basketball, became buds with Fultz during the one season they were both at Washington. Fultz was hyped as a possible No. 1 draft pick from the time he stepped on campus at Washington.

Jets sign former Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson

The team announced the move Tuesday, adding depth to an inexperienced receiving corps. Both Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall were cut this offseason in cost-saving moves, leaving Quincy Enunwa as the Jets' No. 1 receiver in front of several inexperienced players such as Robby Anderson and Charone Peake.

Fultz, Ball, Fox headline list of point guards in NBA draft

Fultz, Ball, Fox headline list of point guards in NBA draft RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Teams looking for point guard help in Thursday night's NBA draft are in luck — as long as they have a high pick, that is. Who will go first — and where — has dominated the build up to the draft, which starts with the Philadelphia 76ers picking first followed by the Los Angeles Lakers at No. 2. Philadelphia and Boston have agreed on a deal to trade picks in this year's draft; the 76ers get the No. 1 overall pick from the Celtics and the chance to select Fultz. [...] Fultz and Ball are not the only two playmakers available who could help some NBA team. There's a quartet of touted one-and-done college players along with an 18-year-old international prospect with size and athleticism. [...] they're all likely to be lottery picks, too. He missed six games with a knee issue late in the season. [...] he couldn't elevate the Huskies to more than nine wins in a rough season . UCLA's freshman star made the Bruins' fast-paced offense hum all the way to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16. He averaged a national-best 7.6 assists at the helm of an attack that ranked second nationally in KenPom's adjusted offensive efficiency (124 points per 100 possessions). [...] while Ball was at his best when he was distributing the ball in the open court, he also averaged 14.6 points and 6.0 rebounds and boasts good size (6-6, 190) at the point. Along the way, Fox put on a dominating show against fellow star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball of UCLA. The 5-11 senior is a tough competitor who closed his Kansas career as The Associated Press national player of the year and the Big 12's top scorer (20.9 points). The 6-3 junior was a second-team AP all-American (16.8 points, 4.7 assists) in leading Gonzaga to the NCAA championship game. Williams-Goss is a possible second-round prospect.
