No doubt, I'm aware of John Wall, but I think Renardo Sidney has more talent. This 6'10'', heavy-set, young man has it all, in terms of skills. His attitude has been question in past the past, off the floor and in practice - nothing unusual with big-men. Sidney is a difficult handle for players at his position. What causes this is his ability to shoot from in and out. His first-step is combined with a combo crossover and pull-up. You'll see him put on the whole arsenal: post-up and jump-hook; skying for the oop; dribbling from the perimeter to inside; three-point range; and shot-blocking while holding his position. Wall might be getting the pub, but I'm keeping a eye on Sidney.

Where would you all put Hassan Whiteside among freshman rankings?
6"11 freshman center.
Had 17 pts, 14 rebs, 11 blocks tonight against some no-name school but still!
Had a 9 block game against miami of ohio I believe.
This kid looks like he may have a bright future, and you can't teach size.
Whiteside plays for Marshall right?
I think that Sidney is the best pure talent among the freshmen, but I think Wall is the better player and definitely the better prospect and athlete.
Also, Abdul Gaddy shouldn't be on that list at all. He's been a disappointment this year and is not at all ready to play many minutes right now. He's adjusting to the college game and he's been outperformed by a whole bunch of freshmen out there this season
I put him there base on outcome and remember, Gaddy is only 17, that's scary lol.
I feel Jordan Hamilton is being overlooked right now, his numbers are just as good as Bradley and I feel he has a great deal of pro potential. Also Kenny Boynton is averaging 14.6 and 4 assists for #13 Florida right now, is super quick and doesn't turn the ball over that much, I think he has a great deal of pro potential as well.
Jordan Hamilton reminds me of Von Wafer with better handles..that's a scary proposition as he will light up the scoreboards immediately when he enters the NBA.
Kenny Boynton is as close to Ben Gordon as you'll get..I think he's a perfect one-dimensional scorer, but he shows decent passing skills too.
igoudala9, I know both of us thought Wally Judge would be having more impact this season. I haven't got a chance to watch K-State this year except a little in the 2nd half of the Xavier game, do you know what he is struggling with right now? He has a ton of potential and I figured he'd be getting more pt.
Judge is adjusting to the speed and spacing (or lack thereof) right now...he's also not as far along offensively as everyone thought. He doesn't have a move in the post, and he's not a great mid-range shooter at all right now. He's also not much of a ball-handler...he's super raw and his value comes from his rebounding, shot-blocking and athleticism in the trapping D that K-State runs. He looks like he's a 2 or 3 year prospect as of right now..
I wouldn't compare Kenny Boynton to Ben Gordon. Boynton has a questionable shooting-form series.
What do the NBAdraft.net community think of Brandon Paul. His game resembles Kendall Gill and Dwyane Wade. Paul is explosive and might be better than Boynton; no, I'm sure he's better, like now.
