Erik Stevenson is a skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is also a solid facilitator that can play either backcourt position. As a sophomore at Wichita State, he scored 19 points, and had 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals in his team’s win over South Carolina. He had transferred to Washington and South Carolina, but he did not play well in those seasons. He will need to be a more consistent shooter and he will need to improve his defense.
Recently, he decided to transfer to West Virginia, and he is having a solid season this year. Currently, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but he is a skilled player that could carve out a long, playing career in professional basketball.
