Aaron Johnson - Johnson is UAB's all-time assists leader, and led the nation last season at 7.7 per game. He also defends about as well as a 5'8 guard in a major-ish conference can, being named to the Conference USA All-Defensive team. But Johnson can't shoot, and is no consistent threat around the basket due to his lack of size. He's not scared - he's just small. He'll make money somewhere, but not here.

Israel, maybe.

Point guard Aaron Johnson leads the entire country in assists at 7.7 per game. This is mainly because he dribbles so much that his palms are orange. And there's nothing wrong with that. The quick and strong 5'8 senior drives the ball to the basket relentlessly, in both the half court and transition games, collapsing defenses and finding open players. He scores rather little himself - 12 points per game in more than 36 minutes, shooting only 42% from the field and 23% from three; what he does get is mostly around the basket, which is no mean feat from one so small. He's also an extremely pesky defender for his size, and just won the Conference-USA DPOY award. Unquestionably, Johnson is the leader of the UAB roster.
