Kansas' Andrew Wiggins, a fellow Canadian and former AAU teammate of Ennis, Duke's Jabari Parker, Kentucky's Julius Randle and Arizona's Gordon have hogged the spotlight when it comes to standout freshmen this season. Ennis' name deserves to be in that conversation.
There's not much flash about him. In the open court, Ennis isn't going to be that guy who rises up for a posterizing dunk like the other four have done this season. But Ennis is the guy who will get them ball at just the right time in just the right spot in order to dunk.
"He's a special player," Fair said. "He's been exceeding a lot of expectations. He's amazing to watch because he's so crafty with the ball."
He's a special player. He's amazing to watch. He's Tyler Ennis.
