jaypro - As the fifth-best point guard in the 2013 class, per, and the No. 35 prospect overall, Derrick Walton will be a welcome addition to the wolverines next year. Even if Trey Burke leaves Michigan for the NBA as expected at the end of the season, Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert have potential to continue Michigan's success at point guard. The competition to start at point guard should be fierce next year and whoever loses may earn playing time at number two guard or even as a possible three guard tandem. Hardaway Jr. could possibly enter the NBA draft along with Burke improving the opportunities for our skilled guards. Keep the talent coming! Go Blue!

Good to see he is putting up those kind of numbers. We will need him once Trey Burke leaves after this season. BTW, the caption under the photo lists him as "forward Derrick Rogers."
