Hopefully what we are witnessing now is what we hoped he would be, those of us that were attentively watching that series.

Can't comment on his Wisconsin days, didn't see any games then.
He's come a long way, he might have hit a super rich vein of form, but he's doing all the little things well and his game looks pretty good in all 3 zones right now.

He uses his vision defensively to cut off passes, or at least make them look available and then take them away.
