According to ESPN, Los Angeles PG Jordan Wilson has verbally committed to Northern Colorado .
In a class dearth of point guards out west Northern Colorado got a good one Jordan Wilson (Los Angeles/Windward)..Ultra quick/physical/skill
— Joel Francisco (@JoelFranESPN) September 16, 2012
Francisco also desribes Wilson (in the article), as a "true point guard who has a bevy of moxie. He affects the game in mulitple ways"
He goes on - "Last season he led his team to the semi-finals at the prestigious Torrey Pines tournament and put together some dominating moments versus highly regarded DeMatha Catholic (Md.) and their ESPN 100 point guard James Robinson (Pittsburgh signee). In other words, I feel Northern Colorado got a steal."
Wilson is just 5'7'' and 150 pounds (according to his ESPN profile), but plays bigger than his size. He is super quick, and can kill you on the break with his ability to just be up on the defense in a second. According to reports he has a great crossover, and a solid midrange jumpshot. At the college level, the lack of ideal size can definitely be overcome (as has been shown time and time again) if you possess other traits, which he seems to possess.
UNC has traditional not been one of the more athletic teams in the Big Sky, but they have some excellent athletes coming in this year, and Wilson will add another dynamic that is not currently on the squad. I suspect that during his time in the Big Sky, he will be one of the most exciting players in the conference, and worth the price of admission every night.
