Let the countdown continue…
15. Dominique Matthews (UIC, Redshirt Freshman): Matthews got off to a fast start as a true freshman, before his season was cut short by injury. Opponents do not want to miss Matthews on their scouting
reports because he is a scoring guard who can light up the basket. He has the talent to be an All-League selection, if he stays healthy.
14. Chris Jenkins (Detroit Mercy, Senior): Jenkins can score in bunches with his stop-and-pop ability. Over the past two seasons, he has been the most consistent Titan offensively. He really takes some difficult shots, so it is impressive that his field goal percentage is as high as it is. Jenkins is not the biggest player, but he is a solid rebounder because he just has a knack for finding the basketball.
13. Josh McFolley (Detroit Mercy, Sophomore): McFolley averaged 13.4 points per game in his first 10 college games, before his offensive role was seemingly reduced. Few players play with more intensity and focus on the floor. McFolley can shoot well from behind the arc, but more often finishes strong around the basket. He was one of the best defensive players the Titans had last season.
12. Rob Edwards (Cleveland State, Sophomore): The Vikings were one of the lowest scoring teams in the nation last season. Despite this, Edwards still scored over 20% of his team’s points. Expect Edwards’ field goal percentage to be healthily above 40% and his turnovers should be down significantly too from his freshman season. If CSU is going to turn it around this season, it has to start with Edwards.
11. Martez Walker (Oakland, Junior): Walker showed some signs of greatness last season, while he struggled in some other games. Still, he is a very good shooter and his ability to spread the floor leads to more opportunities for his teammates. With Kay Felder gone, expect Walker to consistently be the Golden Grizzlies first or second scoring option.
