In this year’s Wisdom of Crowds series, our assignment is to figure out how Coach Wright will replace 40% of last season’s offense produced by departed players Scottie Reynolds, Reggie Redding, and Taylor King. In that quest, we now turn to our attention to shooting guard Corey Stokes. By the way, there is still time to vote in our earlier WOC polls:

BleacherReport.com lists Corey Stokes as its 48th top prospect in next year's NBA draft (they list Maalik Wayns at #21 and Corey Fisher at #35). Of Mr. Stokes, they write "… has one of the purest strokes in the Big East. He shoots the ball proficiently and that will translate well in the NBA. He needs to start being more aggressive with his attack, and finish strong around the rim."
