Few freshmen and few guards in the nation entered this 2011-12 college basketball season with as much promise as Arizona point guard Josiah Turner. He was a top 15 recruit coming out of high school and the star of coach Sean Miller's top ranked freshman class. The lightning quick floor general has seen his expectations drop towards the floor through the Wildcats' first two regular-season games. His shot selection, decision-making and quickness have all worked against him at times as he has tallied just seven points, four assists and four turnovers on the year.
Turner may have as much pro potential as any other player in the Pac-12 (he and Washington's Terrence Ross top our list), but his lackadaisical play with the ball in his hands have some scouts shying off of his expectations a bit. With his size, speed and athleticism, Turner shows the ability to break down defenses and get into the lane at will, but he has been forcing shots around the rim and settling for jump shots thus far.
