The only player there, that I've seen enough to comment on is Samuels. With Clark and Williams out of the picture next season, Samuels should be be able to get around 10 boards a game next season. Clark and Williams both average around 8.5 boards per game, with them heading for the NBA, there's really no reason why Samuels can't pull down those extra boards.

Isaiah Thomas

Probably too short to crack the NBA. His future teammate Abdul Gaddy should be a lottery pick in the 2011 draft.



Mike Rosario

All I've seen of him is Jonny Flynn dropping the dunk of the year on him. He'll need to prove he can play point to make the NBA.



Samardo Samuels

It would be pretty surprising to me if he isn't a first round pick as a junior or senior. A little on the short side for an NBA big man, but is extremely strong and pretty athletic, can score and rebound. He'll need to slim down a bit and become a better defender if he wants to last as an NBA player.



Terrence Jennings

6'10 and athletic, should be drafted eventually, but adding some offensive ability and basketball IQ is essential for him to be a first rounder and to stick around in the NBA.



Tony Woods

Will definitely get his chances to become an NBA center prospect, especially once Aminu leaves for the NBA, Woods will most likely be their best player. I expect him to get drafted eventually, but I don't really know whether to consider him a first or second rounder.




Ty Walker

Had a disappointing freshman season from what I hear, will need to bulk up to even have a shot. There's a reason you don't see 215 pound NBA centers too often.



Elliot Williams

A tad undersized for an NBA SG, but undeniably talented. Proving he can play PG servicably for stretches would really help his stock. Will be drafted as a junior or senior, but as with most guys like that, it's up to him how high his stock rises by then.




DeQuan Jones

Never heard of him.



Jerime Anderson

No idea who he is.




AJ Ogilvy

Probable first rounder net year.



Chris Wright

Wasn't aware he was considered an NBA prospect. Handling Greg Monroe well could get him there though. It worked for Mike Conley Jr.




Manny Harris

Heard good things, but haven't seen enough of him to say. Obviously a second round prospect, but I really don't know if he can become a first rounder. Michigan seems to get no coverage ever.



Corey Stokes

A big SG, like many a potential second rounder, unlikely to become first rounder.




Jeremy Hazell

Playing in a conference with 16 teams sometimes means good players get forgotten about. Seton Hall is one of those teams where this happens. Decent SG prospect.





Kyle Singler

Will be a first rounder, it's up to him whether it's in 2010 or 2011.




Jon Scheyer

For some reason one of the most hated players in college basketball. Second rounder at best.




Most of these guys other than Samuels, Singler and Ogilvy (and maybe Woods) are very unlikely to become rotation players in the NBA anytime soon.
You could do this for a lot of marginal college prospects in the major conferences.

For example: Tyler Zeller, Chris Singleton, Iman Shumpert, Sylven Landseburg, Lavoy Allen, Arinze Onuaku, Rick Jackson, Austin Freeman, Da'Sean Butler, Yancy Gates, Greg Echenique, Mac Koshwal, D.J. Kennedy, Augustus Gilchrist, Delvon Roe, Robbie Hummel, Dallas Lauderdale, Ralph Sampson III, Alex Legion, Justin Mason, Gary Johnson, Anthony Jones, Marshall Moses, Beas Hamga, Drew Gordon, J'Mison Morgan, Malcolm Lee, Matthew Bryan-Amaning, DeAngelo Casto, Nic Wise, Patrick Christopher, Michael Dunigan, Kenny Kadji, Eloy Vargas, Scotty Hopson, J.P. Prince, Wayne Chism, DeAndre Liggins, Dee Bost, JaMychal Green.
