UT: The World's 15th Best University

3

"Perhaps the most GQ-ready look was found on Tristan Thompson, the fourth player selected, also by the Cavaliers.

Thompson, 20, comes to the league with a taste for Ferragamo, YSL and Comme des Garçons. 'I definitely like a European look, pride myself on the European style,' he said."
