South Dakota State’s Nate Wolters Impresses at the NBA Draft Combine [VIDEO]
When South Dakota State was beaten by Michigan in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in March, some NBA ‘experts’ began to whisper that Jackrabbits guard Nate Wolters’ draft stock had fallen after he struggled against the Wolverines.
Thursday in Chicago, Wolters had a chance to show what he’s all about in front on many of those same scouts at the NBA Draft combine, and let’s just say that there are far fewer doubters now.
Wolters was turning heads all of the gym thanks, in part, to his play in the one-on-one drills (check out his moves at the :18 mark).
Following the workouts, the praise from the ‘experts’ flowed in:
Nate Wolters looks real niiiiice out there. Biggest sleeper in the draft.

Nate Wolters is meeting with six NBA teams tonight. Six teams on the first night of the combine means there’s a lot of interest in him.

Afterwards, Wolters talked about his journey to the combine:
Day two of the combine is Friday. The NBA Draft is June 27th.
