College Basketball Top 25 Freshmen

    
December 15th, 2011

As a companion to CollegeHoops.net's Top 100 Players Ranking, we present the first edition of this season's Top 25 freshmen list. Players are judged on a combination of a) talent/potential and b) performance. While the top names on this list (Davis, Kidd-Gilchrist, Rivers, etc) are known to most college basketball fans, there are surprise names further down including some hidden mid-major and low-major gems (such as CCSU's Kyle Vinales and Oakland's Corey Petros).
