  • NBA Draft just happened.

  • They're already making NBA mock drafts

  • They're putting you at the No 1 / No 2 Spot

  • Does that add pressure to you going into your first season of college?

  • Definitely not. I think it's a great thing to have my name up there.

  • It's an honor to be considered one of the top players.

  • I'm just looking forward to playing my first college game.

  • You moved here from Australia in 2013.

  • You went to Montverde. Now you're going to college, and you may be in the NBA next season.

  • That's a lot of growing up to do really quickly. What have you learned about yourself through this process?

  • Um, I think I learned a lot about myself.

  • The main thing is that I'm able to adapt to new places and situations.

  • New teams, coaches, and living environment, so...

  • moving to a new country is big, but I have goals to achieve

  • and in order for me to do that I need to take responsibility.

  • You had a chance to workout with your new team a little bit,

  • What are the differences you're feeling between high school play and college play?

  • I think it's just more physicality.

  • Bigger bodies, run different plays, and the IQ of players is a little higher.

  • You tweeted recently that "every summer you get better. This is just another summer."

  • It's a bigger summer, a little bit.

  • What are you doing this season to get better?

  • Everything, you know. I've been in the weightroom everyday.

  • On the court, shooting. Just getting ready for the ride. Touching everything up.

  • Just overall trying to be a better player.

  • You're here at Nike Basketball Academy.

  • There are a lot of NBA players here. Who are some guys who serve as mentors to you?

  • Definitely Lebron.

  • He's a good guy. I talked to him a bit.

  • He's looked out for me and given me advice whenever I see him - I go out and watch his games.

  • Just talking to a lot of players here: Paul George, KD.

  • So, I think it's just a good experience for me.

  • There's also a lot of younger kids in HS going through the recruiting process.

  • Have you given them any advice about that?

  • I just tell them to stick with their gut.

  • If they want to go somewhere and someone is telling them to go somewhere else...

  • It's their decision.

  • I think it's their major decision before they go to the next level.

  • What can we expect from you next season out on the court?

  • The thing you can expect from me is just to work as hard as I can on the floor and try to win games.
