Class of 2013 on TPS (pt.2)

Last week I summarized all the draft related interviews we've done on The Pipeline Show during the first half of Season 8. If you missed it, you can find that post, and all the interviews that are linked within it, by clicking HERE.

Today I'm tackling the second half of Season 8, what we refer to in our media archive as Season 8.5, which includes the months of January-June. Once again it's the players we speak with on just about every edition of the show in the Draft Spotlight segment. But we also speak with scouts, coaches and have the regular feature segments like the ISS Draft Countdown and The School of Block as well. 

The second half of Season 8 after the jump...
