So much to be excited about this Julian Wright

The Chicago Tribune featured an exceptional read on future Jayhawk, Julian Wright. The article focuses on Julian's desire to get others involved in both his game and his life, and I have to say his attitude is refreshing. Jon Scheyer, who placed second to Julian in Illinois' Mr. Basketball voting, had the following to say about him

"Julian is really down to earth and cares a lot about his teammates," Scheyer said. "He is such an unselfish player who can make an impact on the game without having to score a lot of points.

"I'll always remember his defense because he is the best shot-blocker in the country. At some of the biggest AAU tournaments against some of the best players, Julian was blocking shots from 7-footers. And on offense, he was dunking on everyone."

Next year will be a lot of fun.
