Arizona State freshman Jahii Carson didn't waste any time making an impact for the Sun Devils and his early season exploits haven't gone unnoticed by the national media.

In his weekly column, ESPN's Jason King listed Carson as the player he'd pay to watch. While King didn't expand on why he'd pay to watch Carson, the freshman's scoring exploits make for an obvious reason. Carson is currently averaging 18.3 points per game, good for fifth in the Pac-12. He's scored at least 19 points in five of ASU's eight games this season, including four of the last five.

He's also shown the ability to put on an offensive show. Carson scored a career-high 30 points against Creighton. He's not just a scorer either, Carson finished with four rebounds, seven assists and four steals against Creighton. Carson is currently tied for second in the conference, averaging 5.3 assists per game.

Carson's early success helped the Sun Devils get off to a 7-1 start making him and ASU a team to watch in the Pac-12.
