To say that IU fans are looking forward to next season would be an understatement. In fact, most of us can’t wait for October, when the season officially kicks off with Midnight Madness at Assembly Hall.
With the start of practice still months away, we’ll have to settle for pre-season analysis from the recently graduated Roderick Wilmont, who broke down the upcoming 2007-2008 campaign.
“The talent they have,” he said, “it’s just, wow.”
The most interesting comments from Wilmont are regarding Jordan Crawford, an incoming freshman guard who has been overshadowed by Eric Gordon and Jamarcus Ellis.
“It’s crazy how good this kid is,” Wilmont said. “They may not know him now, but they’re going to know him.”
Wilmont also talked about his chances at making an NBA roster next season.
“My position is interesting because I’ll have some options, and teams who need a player like me could come calling,” said the 6-4 shooting guard. “If I can get on a summer team and play well then that might lead to something.”
