Josh Akognon
 
Josh Akognon of Cal State Fullerton is going to be the steal of the draft. This guy is one of the top scorers in the country. One of the best shooters in the country. He may only be 5'11, but dude is a baller. :pimp:

Also Cal State Fullerton has a freshman pg named Jacques Streeter. Look out for him in the 2012 NBA Draft. :rockon:

I like him as a college player, but I just don't know if he finds himself in the NBA. If a West Coast NBA coach has fallen for him, then I think he could get a shot, and could be a nice spot scorer off the bench if given the chance, but I'm not putting any money on it.

Akognon's best chance of making it is to show the league scouts that he can play the point. So far, he's had a solid performance at the Portsmouth Invitational.

"Josh Akognon (16 points, 6 assists, 4/5 3FG)

Akognon had a performance that is very much in line with what has become the norm for him. His outside shot was simply on point, hitting long range bombs with people in his face. His open court speed was unmatched, and he was also able to use his quickness to turn the corner and get to the hoop. His handles are very solid and he uses a variety of hesitation and crossover moves to get by defenses. In the half court he was able to make some nice reads in the pick and roll and find open teammates either on the roll or on the weakside. However, in between all of these bright spots, comes the out-of-control and shoot-first mentality that we have seen from him all season. He tends to over-dribble and he also likes to look for his shot too frequently, rather than setting up teammates. In transition he looks to make the spectacular player rather than the right one. For a player his size he will need to become a more controlled lead guard, who is dedicated to setting up his teammates consistently."

Flying under the radar, but I believe Golden State is very interested in him.
