Default Best college players to watch going into the 2016-17 season

Which college players are you most excited to watch in 2016-17, and why? If you mention a player, say what you like about him too.

Keep an eye on Arizonas Rawle Alkins

Hes a freshman but if he didnt reclass he would technically be going into his junior year. Also Alonzo Trier from Zona as well.

Basically watch out for Arizona

Dennis Smith. PG NC State
The guy is electrifying. Fast and has a crazy handle with hops out of this world. He reminds me of Steve Francis. Kid could overtake number 1

It's arguable whether Briscoe is even going to start... his problem is, he just can't shoot. MKG couldn't shoot either, but he did everything else and scoring was never an issue with that team.

UK picked up two 5* guards this year, the #2 PG and the #2 SG.

Bam should be UK's best player this year. He is THE ideal big man for a Coach Cal offense.

Briscoe has almost 40lbs and more experience than DeAaron. No way DA gets the start over Briscoe but we shall see

Marcus Lovett getting some love from top college analysists after his big game against Minnesota

Was on freshman focus with J Jackson, Lonzo, Markelle, DeAaron

How about they start together...

Fox - 15, 6, 8
Monk - 19, 3, 3
Briscoe - 18, 3, 3

That's a nice 1, 2, 3 there.

And Fox is an absolute baller.

I saw LoVett and Aaron Holiday go at it, and man was it a thing of beauty.

I'm sad I missed the Jaylen Hands - LiAngelo Ball game last night though

I'm sold. Bam Edebayo is going to be the steal of this draft. He is FRESKY AF. The motor. The intensity. The ability to know down FT. He's a guy that fits ANY team. I love the McDyess comparison. But with a better motor if that's possible.

He got off to a rough start, but he's averaging 15.2ppg and 10.2rpg over his last four (while shooting about 70% from the FT line).

This dude was born in 97. What in the ****?

My God. He looks like a full grown man.

Josh Hart making a heavy statement for national player of the year

Lonzo Ball just changes teams and has an aura like he's the modern Magic but De'Aaron Fox did outplay him when they went head to head and I just love Fox's speed and the aesthetics of his play even though I would say Lonzo has been more impressive in the season overall

Melo Trimble

Jack Gibbs

OG Anunoby

James Blackmon Jr.

Donovan Mitchell

Alec Peters

Edmond Sumner

Trevon Blueitt

Frank Jackson(least hyped of the duke freshman but his game is just SEXY while also having a "strong" isaiah briscoe feel to it)

Some lesser known ones:

Bryant McIntosh

Marcus Keene(aka the 5'9 guy leading the NCAA in scoring)

Peter Jok

Nick Emery

Eric Mika
