Guys I'm totally sold on for next year

Here are 4 college guys for next year that I am all in on as prospects, feel free to post your own guys as well.

1. Thomas Robinson, PF Kansas- An absolute beast. He put up solid numbers even with KU's stacked front court. He will definitely break out this year and my prediction is that he will be a lotto pick next year.

2. Kendall Marshall, PG UNC- Terrific passer with great court vision. He is playing on a team with so much talent next year so he will look even better facilitating for Barnes and Zeller. I think he could average 10 assists per game which is extremely rare for college.

3. Peyton Siva, PG Lville- Very quick and elusive, this great lead guard will get more recognition on a much improved team. He should lead Lville much farther in the tourney this year.

4. Jeremy Lamb, SG Uconn- I am really high on this kid and I think that he could average over 20ppg and win Big East player of the year. He can flat out score, 11ppg as a frosh, and is a pretty good shooter as well. This sky is the limit for him.

I can see lamb avg 20, Kemba

I can see lamb avg 20, Kemba is gone so they will need it, so someone has to stepup I see him stepping up

I also like Marshal- did a great job as a starter for unc look for him to improve as you mentioned

I will also put Harrison Barnes(next season will show who he really is), Renaldo Sidney(still waiting for him to breakout hopfefully is in shape) Terrance Jones will improve as well. basically every freshman who came back should improve

I wanna see Austin Rivers

I wanna see Austin Rivers just be a absolute beast and put up 30 on some nights but prob not going to happen but i wanna see how good he will be on Duke and rase his draft stock back up because right now he is currently at 11 .

I also wanna see how good Baylor will be with Perry Jones and Quincy Miller

But i want to see if who is better out of Perry Jones and Anthony Davis becuase to me they seem like twins with there athleticism and height.

What about that Barnes dude

What about that Barnes dude for UNC, he looks pretty good. And I can't wait to see Sub Zero (Rivers).

Barnes is foolish for not

Barnes is foolish for not coming out as a top 3 pick. It might be tough for him to put 20+ ppg with all the talent there but I think he's gonna be the best player next year and a top 3 pick still.

Jordan Taylor is another guy who has Big Ten POY and All American potential next year. His development and ability to take care off the ball (3.83 AT Ratio last year) has been amazing in his three years and he will get even more opportunities next year with Leuer and Nakivil gone.

Barnes is gonna be beastly

Barnes is gonna be beastly next year,Im glad he came back,because when he gets to the NBA he will be more than ready.

I add Tim Hardaway Jr. to your list, much taller than I thought he was.

Doron Lamb

Doron lamb could make some noise next year. he was excellent for kentucky backing up knight and is an great three point shooter. I could see him avg 14-16ppg with more playing time

Maalik Wayns and Dominic Cheek

I would also add this dynamic Villanova backcourt to the list. Now that the Corey (Fisher and Stokes) left, the backcourt is free for these two guys to dominate. Last year I felt Wayns was better than Fisher, and now that he is gone Wayns will be given the chance to dominate the ball more, especially in late game situations. I think Wayns is a dark horse Big East POY canidate. Cheek is a super athletic player who reminds me of a slimmer Rodney Carney, and given playing time I think he can be an all big east type player.

I'm not sure if this applies

I'm not sure if this applies to players who played in the NCAA this past season or not, but I think Michael Gilchrist is going to be a stud next year. I think he will be a much better version of what DeAndre Liggins was for Kentucky last year.

Maalik Wayns is going to be

Maalik Wayns is going to be great next year. Has the keys to Villanova, should be the top scorer in the Big East with his freedom and he should get good playmaking numbers too. I do wonder about his efficiency, but he should put up big scoring numbers nonetheless. His numbers could be Kemba Walker-esque, but he won't win big though.

Someone mentioned Hardaway Jr., he'll be good too as the feature scorer for Michigan, but he'll need guys to get him the ball as he's more of an off-ball scorer. Who replaces Morris will be important, as he needs guys to get him the ball in good spot. If the PG is bad, Hardaway will likely struggle too.

The same can be said for Glen Rice Jr. as it was with Hardaway Jr., with Shumpert and Mo Miller gone.

Christian Watford of Indiana should be a good player. He's a mismatch forward who is adding polish but has good potential. His teammate Victor Oladipo also is interesting. He's very similar to Travis Leslie as a freak athlete with length, and good defensive ability on the wing. He should be a big slashing threat and a relentless hustler.

Keith Appling for Michigan State should emerge as a top scorer in that conference. He'll have the keys to the car next year with all the Sr's gone.

I'm also expecting a bounce back season from Wesley Witherspoon of Memphis. Will not really a bounce back, but I'm hoping he actually capitalizes on the promise he showed as a Sophomore.

Josh Smith of UCLA should take a huge step forward. Hopefully he's focused on losing weight, because he won't be a30 mpg player until he's in shape. He fouled too much last year when he played too heavy. He has great ability on offense.

Reggie Moore of Washington St. should be a very good PG in that league as well. He played with a bad hand/wrist last year and struggled, but he has talent as a scorer and playmaker. And he's a good athlete.

Dundrecus Nelson of Ole Miss (cool name right?!) could also emerge into a productive player replacing chucker Chris Warren at the PG spot. Nelson has elite potential as a finisher at the rim with his leaping skills.

I expect Shabazz Napier to

I expect Shabazz Napier to take his game to the next level, now that he's the starting PG for UConn. The guy is a slick ball handler, extremely quick, and is the best defensive PG in the Big East. I expect him to be a 1st or 2nd Team all Big East performer. He can really lock people up defensively.

DRAYMOND GREEN

DRAYMOND GREEN senior from Michigan State is solid player...led Spartans in rebounds with 8.6 and assits with 4.1 and averaged a respectable 12.6 ppg. He is undersized for a small forward at 6'6'' 230 but makes up for it with his hustle. Izzo has loved this kid since day 1 because he is a true leader and has never ending energy. He was also one of the plyers just invited to tryout for the U.S. national team in the up-coming World University Games. Aron currently has him at 32 in the 2012 Mock Draft.

I can't wait to see how the

I can't wait to see how the baylor trio works out & how much harrison barnes will improve especially since he is attending a guard's camp this summer. Also an underrated freshmen tandem to look at for is oklahoma state's lebryan nash & cezar guerrero, imo they're going to fill it up! As someone mentioned tim hardaway, i saw a very promising game from him against duke, he showed a nice jumpshot in that game.

Another guy who I really like

Another guy who I really like is Dee Bost from Mississippi St. He has improved his point and assist numbers every year since his freshman year. He will benefit from playing a whole season and really establish himself as one of the best of the SEC

Bernard James

Bernard James will be ther best interior defender in next years draft class. His only problem with being drafted really early is the fact that he will be 27 at the time of the draft. The Sarge is a beast.

I expect Barnes to be

I expect Barnes to be unstoppable much like he played in the ACC and NCAA tourney. Lamb will improve and have some big games. Sullinger numbers will dip a little not having Dieber or Lighty means more double teams. As far as freshmen Anthony Davis Marquis Teague and Austin Rivers will stand out. Davis is a stud Teague will put up big numbers and be better than his brother and Rivers will shoot lights out and have a Stephen Curry type of year.

I like some of the names you

I like some of the names you guys mentioned already that I had in mind like: Maalik Wayans, Peyton Siva, Josh Smith..

One guy I had in mind though was J.P. Olukemi from OK State. I didn't catch a whole bunch of their games, but the games I did see, he looked real good. Looked like a nice wing athlete who's a real attacking slasher. I was impressed with his game. Put up solid numbers and next year I expect him to improve.
Iggy, what you think of him? I know you watch a lot of Big 12 basketball.

Very good player. Has the ability to play SG-PF in that wide-open scheme for Travis Ford. He is a slasher with very good strength, and he's a better shooter than I thought. I think he'll have a pretty good season next year. Him with Nash and Guerrero is OK State alot of firepower offensively. They are a sleeper team not only in the conference, but also in the nation. Especially since they return Keiton Page too at the guard spots, who is a deadly shooter.

My Shabazz Napier projection

My Shabazz Napier projection is looking good so far. I knew this guy had the talent to be an all Big East PG. He was a huge sleeper coming into this season its only a matter of time till people realize he is one of the best PGs in the nation.

Ive been saying that

Shabazz is a big time talent, I've watched him since high school out here in New England, and he was really a top 25-30 player in the class of 2010. Great shooter, great passer, slick ballhandler, very quick and just an overall great player. But Lamb is one of the best wings in the nation, and boatright will be a legend at UCONN in time, he could very well be the most athletic guard in the big east
