Juco Profile: Theron Wilson

Theron Wilson is putting up ridiculous numbers as a sophomore at Seward County (KS) Community College and is arguably one the best junior college prospects in the country.

Theron Wilson is an explosive and athletic 6-foot-6, 200-pound wing, who is averaging 25.3 points, 12.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.9 steals, and 2.3 blocks per game while shooting 50 percent from the floor through 13 games.

"This season has been exciting," said Wilson, who had a 33-point, 20-rebound game earlier this season. "We have four losses and I wasn't expecting that. I think I'm doing well, but I could do a little bit better on the small aspects of the game."

His 25.3 points and 12.5 rebounds ranks fourth nationally amongst junior college players and he leads the prestigious Jayhawk Conference in both categories.

"My scoring is there, but rebounding has always been a big priority for me," Wilson said. "I knew I had to do that this year because of the guys we lost."

Another impressive statistic, which leads the country, is his free-throw attempts per game—12.2 per game.

To put his free-throw attempts per game in perspective Allen Iverson and Dwyane Wade, the top two in the NBA, average less free-throw attempts per game as Iverson averages 11.6 attempts per game and Wade is at 11.2. No Division I player averages more than 11.5 attempts per game.

As a freshman, Wilson started 29 games averaging 12.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.

Now a sophomore, Wilson has taken his game to another level.

"I don't think that much has changed," Wilson said. "I just have more opportunities this year. My confidence hasn't changed."

UNLV has showed interest in Wilson since he has been at Seward as well as some schools in the Missouri Valley Conference. Although he remains open, Wilson's goal is to play in a high-major conference.

Wilson is a 2005 graduate of Highland Park High School in Topeka, Kan. where he was a two-time all-state player averaging 17 points and 8 rebounds a game. As an NCAA academic qualifier out of high school Wilson elected to attend Seward County because he was a relative unknown prospect.

Wilson, who is interested in studying business, plans on taking officials visits in the spring after his season is over. Seward County does not have a game until Jan. 3.
