His ability to stretch the floor, shooting 39.0 percent from three this season, while being able to protect the rim (1.2 blocks per game), is what separates him from the rest of the forwards in the nation. Toppin is projected to be a lottery pick.
Toppin didn't play his freshman year at Dayton, and now has announced he will be forgoing his final two seasons of eligibility.
