Class of 2012 Re-Rankings
Last year's ESPN100 turned out to be pretty inaccurate after Kyle Anderson, Steven Adams, Cameron Ridley and several others failed to reach their expectations. Marcus Smart was ranked #10 overall where he is guaranteed to be drafted at a higher number than in this upcoming draft. After one season those rankings would have all changed fast if we had to re-rank the class of 2012. Who would make your Top 10 if you had to re-rank last year's HS Senior class? I know people are gonna be missing Ben McLemore on this list since he was considered a freshmen this year, but Ben McLemore was a part of the Class of 2011 who was ruled ineligible last season. These rankings are NOT in order of their NBA potential, this is in order of how they played this past season.
1. Marcus Smart Oklahoma St. (10)
2. Anthony Bennett UNLV (7)
3. Shabazz Muhammad UCLA (2)
4. Nerlens Noel Kentucky (1)
5. Gary Harris Michigan St. (11)
6. Glenn Robinson Michigan (18)
7. Isaiah Austin Baylor (3)
8. Rasheed Sulaimon Duke (12)
9. Archie Goodwin Kentucky (15)
10. Nik Stauskas Michigan (76)
Sam Dekker over Stauskas imo
Huh,no Jahii Carson???
Kyle Anderson averaged 10ppg/9rpg/5apg......not Player of the Year numbers but I wouldn't say he was a disappointment. Would rather have the year he had then Archie Goodwin year. Honestly I could make an argument that Kyle was the 2nd best player in stretches of the season after Jordan Adams and before Shabazz....
