The amazing thing about it is I don't think any of us saw it coming with Victor. We have loved his energy for a long time, and frankly last year half the mentions of him were "Sheeladipo" referring to the boost of energy we all felt when either or both of those guys were on the court.
But from the low recruiting rankings to his so-so basketball skills as a freshman to his stellar play that emerged last year that still lacked a jump shot, I don't think I ever recall such a late bloomer. I guess it brings to mind Brad Miller, who never bloomed at all until getting to the NBA undrafted, then became an all-star. But from going to "yeah, I think he can start for IU" to "lottery pick" in 4 months is unreal.
