Class isn't in session yet but let's make some predictions. Out of this years crop of freshmen that are projected to become 1st round draft picks which player(s) do you think will return for a Sophomore season to enjoy some of that good ol' college fun.
Brad Beal- Not that I don't think he won't be ready to jump to the pros after a year in college because the kid is obviously filled with talent, but Florida seems to be on the rise once again. Beal is certainly a player that will be a difference maker for them and could carry them to a Final Four run, but if they fall short or get knocked out early I could see Beal pulling a Sullinger and staying for another season.
LeByran Nash- Unless Nash has a steller season he should stay, also might be a good idea since the 2012 class seems to be very deep with wing players/small forwards.
Jury is still out on Quincy Miller, he seems to have picked up a few doubters in the past year but I still think he will have a good year next to Perry Jones.
I think James McAdoo should stay for one more year and be the leader of the North Carolina team, since he might not even start next year.
Yeah McAdoo will be interesting. He'll be in a role Marvin Williams was on the '05 team.
Can't wait to see Quincy Miller as well playing next to Jones. Hope he's fully reovered
On a side note, I've got 666 points! I should probably freak out lol.
I think tony wroten jr. should stay another year his first year will probably be spent either a lot of 2 or split time with Abdul Gaddy if he's healthy. I guess it depends on how healthy gaddy will be
With Kentucky having Terrence Jones returning then I wonder if Michael Gilchrist will get as many minutes as he once expected unless they play Anthony Davis as a C. So Gilchrist could be a guy who decides to return for his Sopohomore year especially as Kentucky will no doubt have some top recruits coming in next summer.
Also I'd agree that McAdoo and Rivers will only declare if they are told that they are NBA ready by their dads.
I think Myck Kabongo will be back.
I also think Brad Beal will be in Gainesville for another year.
