A Statistical Comparison

Lets compare two Wisconsin basketball players' advanced statistical metrics, and a third player from a top-10 team.

Player 1 uses 25% of his team's possessions when he is on the floor (which happens 87% of the time). His offensive rating (roughly speaking, a measure of how many points he creates via scoring or assists per 100 possessions) is 132.5, which leads the country for players that take more than 24% of his team's shots.

Player 2 uses 31% of his team's possessions, is on the floor 88% of the time, and has an offensive rating of 122.4, good for 103rd in the country.

Player 3 uses 27% of his team's possessions, is on the floor 90% of the time, and has an offensive rating of 122.5.

Player 1 is Jordan Taylor, junior point guard for the Wisconsin Badgers. Player 2 is Kemba Walker, junior point guard for the University of Connecticut, and consensus NBA lottery pick. Player 3 was Devin Harris, point guard for the Wisconsin Badgers, and taken fifth overall in the 2004 NBA draft.

Why is nobody mentioning Taylor as a possible draft prospect?
