TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Jahii (ja-hee) Carson show is about to go live after a year on the shelf.
One of the most highly touted players in Arizona State history, Carson didn't play last season as a freshman after failing to meet the NCAA's academic guidelines.
Hype for the bouncy, 5-foot-10 point guard from nearby Mesa reached a fever pitch in the year he sat out, with nearly half a million viewers watching his highlight reel on YouTube and more than 6,0000 following him on Twitter.
Carson spent his redshirt year wisely, working on his game and his maturity while adding 15 pounds of muscle to his lanky frame.
Now he finally gets a chance to see if he can live up to the substantial hype that's built up around him.
