ESPN insider report: "The praise keeps pouring in for Kyle Wiltjer. Most recently, he showcased his impressive shooting ability at the LeBron James Skills Academy. We will surely hear Wiltjer's name more and more once the seasons start to change. The 6-foot-9 power forward has an array of offers and interest from colleges, stretching from Gonzaga to Wake Forest. One reason for his heated recruitment is that he is a phenomenal shooter. Wiltjer is a prime example of a stretch-4, a power forward who can operate out of the middle and is capable of taking his man outside and scoring on him. Gonzaga has been heavily involved in recruiting the prep for a while now. Although the Zags are a little crowded in the frontcourt, there is the possibility that Elias Harris is in Spokane for only one more year, which would mean coach Mark Few needs a big like Wiltjer who can stretch the defense and not clog up the lane. Wiltjer -- who lives in Portland, Oregon -- is being pursued by the Ducks and the Beavers, as well as Georgia Tech, Gonzaga, Kansas, Stanford, Wake Forest, Washington and USC." Paul Biancardi: "Wiltjer's skill and feel for the game are simply terrific. During drills and scrimmages, Wiltjer's footwork and touch separated him from the other post players in the class. He executes great ball fakes in order to move the defender out of position in order to get off his shot. He does a great job of screening and sealing his defender for great low-post position as well. A natural pick-and-pop power forward, Wiltjer can also score with his back to the basket and pass out of the post with great accuracy when he draws multiple defenders. Defensively, he understands how to hedge on screens with great effort. Wiltjer reminds us of a high-school version of University of Minnesota and Boston Celtics great Kevin McHale."
