So what if Zeke is a rookie? And they didn't draft him #4 overall, given that he's a prototype 3-down back, to have him in a timeshare with Morris or McFadden. Behind that line, coupled with his skills as a runner, receiver, and pass blocker, there's no way he should fall past the first round.
Summary: Harkless has become the go-to player on a very young, thin Red Storm team. He does a little bit of everything on the floor and has not even come close to reaching his full potential yet. If he continues to play at an extremely high level during his freshman season, Harkless could be a one-and-done since he would almost certainly be a lottery selection.
Player Comparison: Paul George. Like George, Harkless is a long, athletic wing who can cause matchup problems due to his versatility. Both guys handle the ball well for their size and are extremely dangerous off the bounce, but also have capable outside shots.
