As a junior, Werner averaged 16 points, 7 boards and shot 36.3% from behind the arc (41-for-113). His team finished the season 26-3.
"He's a pretty complete player for his size and that's a legitimate 6-foot-7, 6-8 and 220 pounds," CBA coach Ed Wicelinski said. "He can put the ball on the floor, he passes, shoots, takes it to the hoop, rebounds and plays defense. I think he's a pretty complete player. I think he has an upside and I don't think he's there yet."
Werner was ready to make a decision because he had done all his homework. Plus, he had already unofficially all of the schools that were on his list. "It put him in a position to make an intelligent decision now," Wicelinski said. "It came down to some great choices with some great people."
Werner was recruited as a guy who can play facing the basket and his versatility and overall feel for the game seem to have been big selling points in his recruitment by the Wolfpack. "He loves the system that they run," Tony Sagona, Werner's AAU coach said. "He's a very a skilled player and we think he'll fit in quite comfortably there."
