Porter spoke with reporters on Thursday at the NBA scouting combine and expressed confidence in himself.

Porter entered his freshman season as one of the top prospects in his class. His season at Missouri was marred by a back injury that required surgery, limiting Porter to just 53 minutes in three games.
Time will tell whether Porter shakes out to be the best player in the 2018 draft, but he certainly will have competition. Luka Doncic, Marvin Bagley III, Deandre Ayton, Mo Bamba, Trae Young and Collin Sexton are among the other top prospects in the class.
