Campbell works out for Wizards

Much like his fellow Final Four brothers, Folarin Campbell has gotten a chance to show the Washington Wizards his stuff. Campbell worked out for the Wizards yesterday at the Verizon Center in hopes of landing a spot on the summer league squad. If you remember two years ago, Lamar Butler and Tony Skinn had their chance with the Wizards but failed to make the summer league team. Skinn a year later was able to land a spot on the Orlando Magic's summer league team. Out of all the players from that Final Four squad I always thought that Campbell had the best chance out of any to make an NBA roster because of his combination of size and versatility to play multiple positions. Unlike Butler and Skinn, Campbell has the size (6'4") that most teams look for in a guard. Will he make the cut? Probably not but after his memorable career at Mason it's good to see guys like him and Will getting their shots other than France or Saudi Arabia.

Some interesting facts about Campbell:

His junior year in high school, he was first team All-Met ahead of Rudy Gay, Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert.

Campbell played in as many NCAA tournament games as projected lottery picks Michael Beasley, O.J. Mayo, Jerryd Bayless, Anthony Randolph, Joe Alexander and Eric Gordon COMBINED.

When you consider Campbell played four years in college and most of the guys on your list played 1 it's not that impressive.

Oh and your stats aren't right anyway. Campbell played in 5 NCAA tournament games.

Alexander played in 3, Gordon 1, Beasley 2, Mayo 1

Doesn't matter to much how many games he played in. It matters if he showed up for them. Which is why he won't be a NBA player. No consistancy in his play. He also is turnover prone. Wait he might fit well with the Wizards they like to turn it over alot.

It's amazing to me the number of people who think collegiate or pro athletes have the capacity to compete at 110% throughout a season. Folarin played through injuries, fatique, and changing roles througout the season. He put team before self and he should be applauded for doing so. He did everything that his coach asked of him. GMU fans will miss his presence terribly.
