Opinion: Jake Heaps instant upgrade |
Heaps can place the ball into the hands of more playmakers than could Crist, thanks to Weis’ decision to move Tony Pierson to receiver much of the time, the addition of physical possession receiver Justin McCay, the continued improvement of tight end Jimmay Mundine and the return of running back James Sims.

"Don’t get too caught up in where you are drafted," Hawkinson recalled. "Just make the most of your opportunity."

Opinion: Justin McCay makes big first impression |

NBA draft 2013 Big Board leads with Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore - NBA - Chris Mannix -
McLemore erased the memory of two weak opening-round games, against Western Kentucky (11 points) and North Carolina (two), by posting 20 points (on 8-of-15 shooting) in a Sweet 16 loss to Michigan. With prototypical 2-guard size and a picturesque stroke, McLemore should be a starter right away and in the top half of NBA shooting guards within a couple of years.
