Former Rutgers basketball standout Ron Harper Jr. appears to be heading in the right direction according to most NBA mock drafts. The latest mock draft from USA TODAY’s For the Win has Harper going off the board late in the second round.

Harper gets taken at No. 57 by the Portland Trail Blazers in the FTW NBA mock draft.

Earlier last week, Bleacher Report had Harper going in the second round to the Indiana Pacers.

In his final season at Rutgers, Harper averaged 15.8 points per game and 5.9 rebounds. He garnered national attention for his late-game, heroics including a nearly half-court shot to beat then No. 1 Purdue at the buzzer and then a late-game three-point shot to beat Indiana on the road.

Over the weekend, Harper worked out for the Charlotte Hornets and talked about the workout with the NBA squad:

“I’m trying to showcase my 3-point shooting capability, my consistency and most importantly, I feel like I’m trying to showcase my defensive versatility,” Harper said in a video released by the Hornets via their social media channels.

“The way I can defend multiple positions.”
