Short Term Outlook: Khalil Iverson has massive potential. His off the charts athleticism is going to be exciting to watch. However, I don’t think we’ll get to see it this year. Iverson has a lot of work to do on developing his game offensively. He probably will and should take a redshirt year.

Long Term Outlook: As mentioned before, his athleticism is great, and he seems to be a superb passer. If he’s able to develop his shot, he has a chance at being a star. And I’m talking NBA. He certainly has the vertical jump and quickness. And something tells me Bo Ryan will get the most out of him. I also think he’s best suited as a long point guard, and he should start there once Koenig graduates. By his senior year, he can be a 15-point, 5 assist, and 5-rebound point guard.

Player Comparison: I’ve seen some comparisons to former Wisconsin star Alando Tucker. While that’s a good comparison athletically, I’m not sure their styles are really the same. Tucker was more of a pure scorer, while Iverson seems to be a pass-first player. He reminds me more of a poor man’s Michael Carter-Williams.
