Wells spent three seasons at Maryland after one year at Xavier, and is not currently projected to be selected by nbadraft.net. A strong performance could see him sneak into the second round.

Notable Big Ten conference players he will have to compete against include Frank Kaminsky & Sam Dekker (Wisconsin), Branden Dawson (Michigan State), Terran Petteway (Nebraska), D'Angelo Russell (Ohio State) and Aaron White (Iowa).
