Oladipo was one of the keys to the Hoosiers’ turnaround the past two seasons. This year, he developed into one of the most complete players in college basketball. He was named the National Defensive Player of the Year, and helped Indiana to a Big Ten conference title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Oladipo was ranked seventh on the latest NBA Draft Big Board from SI.com’s Chris Mannix. Oladipo is athletic and could contribute immediately. But to become an All-Star, his offensive game will need further work.
