Beal hasn't gotten the publicity of some of the other members of the 2011 recruiting class, but Billy Donovan found a gem. Beal is hands down the best pure shooter in this class and may well be the best shooter in the country next year after shooting 49% from distance as a high school senior.
Beal is listed as 6'3" or 6'4", which makes him a little undersized for the NBA two position, but his skills more than make up for his lack of height. He needs to develop a more consistent defensive mindset, but his offensive ability will speak for itself. Some have compared Beal to Ray Allen, but Eric Gordon and Michael Redd seem like more realistic expectations.
