This sounds exactly like what one UNI fan said about their freshman point guard this season. I would say that very few freshman point guards can step in and be really solid from day 1. ISU might be better off with Evans starting and bringing the young guy along slowly. I think even Van Vleet was a back-up PG his first year, and Shamet redshirted his first year.
I am oh so familiar with Panther fans hyperbole about their recruits. Whether he starts or not Clarance should get heavy minutes next year.
Also...Shamet played the first 3 games of his Freshman season and averaged about 20 minutes per game before the injury that earned him a medical redshirt. He obviously didn't need to sit out a year to develop!
