*Early entry

Check out Marcus Fizer in action

Cyclone fans were disappointed Fizer decided to leave after his junior season, but few could blame him. Clearly, he was ready for the next level. Some have compared Fizer favorably to Karl Malone. If Fizer has half the career the Mailman has put together, he'll be a worthwhile lottery pick. Fizer has Malone-like skills and, at 6-8 and 240 pounds, similar size. Fizer uses his strength to dominate in the paint; he was the only Division I player to rank among the nation's Top 20 in scoring (22.8) and field-goal percentage (58.2). The consensus first-team All-American and Big 12 Player of the Year is also a capable, if not spectacular, rebounder. He needs to work on his shooting range and passing skills if he's to have a superstar NBA career.
