Mathurin’s considerably unfairly been boxed right into a 3-and-D sort prospect, however he is a lot greater than that.

There is not any doubt Sharpe has an unimaginable pedigree — he was the No. 1 recruit in his class earlier than enrolling at Kentucky — however he comes with some threat, too, mirrored right here with a drop to No. 10. We’ve not seen him in a aggressive setting since he performed on the EYBL circuit and there is a ton of thriller surrounding him.
