Duke

This season’s edition of the Kansas Jayhawks’ is a NBA scout’s dream come true. Go to a Jayhawks’ game and it’s one stop shopping - you can scout six potential NBA players on their roster alone (Arthur, Chalmers, Collins, Kaun, Rush & Wright). North Carolina, Florida and Ohio State are just a few of the other teams with rosters stacked with pro prospects this season. Over the past two decades there have been a handful of NCAA teams that have had similiarly pro packed rosters. Here are the top five in terms of quality and quantity:

NBA Draft

This is not a mock draft…

This is not based on projections or team needs…

No, the following list is comprised of the top ten prospects currently playing at the collegiate level. This list will evolve throughout the season as new information about each player becomes apparent. We will learn more and more about these elite talents as certain strengths are realized and even more weaknesses are exposed…

TOP TEN NBA PROSPECTS (previous rankings are in parentheses)

1. (1.) Greg Oden (Ohio State, C, 7-0, Fr.)
Why He’s Adam’s #1 Prospect:
He’s too good to be true. Oden isn’t just huge, he’s agile and explosive. And with his ever-developing left-hand, he’s surprisingly skilled on the low blocks. Forget college, right now there are only a handful of centers in the NBA who could hang with him.

NBA Eligibility Rule Helps College & Pro Basketball

September 21st, 2006
NBA DraftDwight Howard, fresh off representing his country in the FIBA World Championships, and following a season in which he led the NBA in total rebounds, is still almost three months shy of his 21st birthday. LeBron James, who seemingly has been the NBA’s marquee star for years, will turn 22 in December.  Even 8-time All Star Kobe Bryant, a veteran by comparison, is two years shy of 30.
