Former Arizona Wildcats Forward And Top-Prospect Derrick Williams Featured On ESPN's Sport Science

Derrick Williams, who projects to be a top-3 pick in next week's NBA Draft, was recently featured on Sport Science. We all know about his monster dunks, but what separates him from all of the other forwards in this year's Draft is his incredible shooting touch from beyond the arc. Take a look:

The best part of the whole video? Sure, the shooting display and dunks are fun, but it's Derrick's response to host John Brenkus that steals the show. After shooting ten 3-point shots, Brenkus says, "nine for ten, that's pretty good! It looks easy!" and Williams replies, "Yeah...it's alright. Trying to get ten of ten." That's the sign of a truly special player.

But how could Williams not have that mentality? After all, he was the lowest ranked recruit of Arizona's 5-man recruiting class of 2009 under Sean Miller. Matter of fact, Derrick wasn't even ranked in some prospect databases. But instead of getting down on himself and his game, he worked harder than ever to prove his doubters wrong. He wouldn't be where he is today without that work ethic and mentality to always get better.

I don't know about you, but that's the kind of player I want on my team.
