Consensus Top Rated Washington Huskies Point Guard Markelle Fultz prepares for 2017 NBA Draft like an underdog
University of Washington Huskies Markelle Fultz is a soft spoken young man whose wisdom betrays his youth. He does not strike you as a young man in his late teens. In fact, if you hear him speak, you can hear the wisdom of a man many years older in his choice of words. Not only in what he says, but in what he does not say.
Now, that’s not to say he hides his youthful enthusiasm or his confidence.
But he is not making brash statements to the media nor calling out other players, as some have chosen to do.
Instead, he lets the social media traffic blow past him. He didn’t respond brashly to the social media taunts of his contemporary Lonzo Ball. Instead, he simply used the banter to fuel is training.
