Mr. Fourth Quarter Davon Potts will try to carry his clutch gene all the way into the PBA.
Before the PBA Draft this Sunday, let's revisit some of the college highlights of this year's top projected picks to offer a kind of glimpse of what they could bring in the pros.
SCHOOL: San Beda College
MONICKER / NICKNAME: Mr. Fourth Quarter
Nicknamed "Mr, Fourth Quarter for his slick shooting touch and fearless shot-taking, especially in the clutch, Davon Potts has earned the reputation that may give him the advantage over other shooters in this year's draft class.
Already possessing the height of a shooting guard by PBA standards, Potts' ceiling as a pure scorer in terms of both skill and mentality is already high, but his untapped potential to become a solid defender, playmaker, or both, given the right guidance, makes him a great option.
Potts showcased his knack for drilling long bombs, especially in crucial moments, back in the NCAA season 92 tournament, where you'll see the ball in his hands during close games.
The Fililipino-American shooting guard's firm grasp of his identity as a dependable scorer is something no PBA team may want to pass up.
