The move was widely expected as Fox is projected to be a high lottery pick. He is ranked fifth on the prospect lists compiled by both Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress and by Chad Ford of ESPN.com. Ford cites Fox’s speed and play in the open court as assets, but cautions that he is prone to turnovers and doesn’t shoot well from distance.
A 6’4″ freshman, Fox helped the Wildcats compile a 32-6 record, averaging 16.7 points and 4.6 assists per game. He was named to both the all-conference and all-rookie teams in the SEC.
