Arrow HIPPOS New Top 66 Prospect Rankings

I did one a few months ago so some changes have had to be made. This is for all players, not just players in this year's draft (most will be drafted within the next two years). This is purely who I think the best prospects are.

1. Greg Oden- Ohio State (Freshman)
2. Derrick Rose- HS (Senior)
3. Kevin Durant- Texas (Freshman)
4. Chase Budinger- Arizona (Freshman)
5. Michael Beasley- HS (Senior)
6. OJ Mayo- HS (Senior)
7. Julian Wright- Kansas (Sophmore)
8. Joakim Noah- Florida (Junior)
9. Eric Gordon- HS (Senior)
10. Brandan Wright- North Carolina (Freshman)
11. Kevin Love- HS (Senior)
12. Marcus Williams- Arizona (Sophmore)
13. Danilo Gallinari- International (18 years old)
14. Ricky Rubio- PG (16 years old) Yes, it’s way too early
15. Yi Jianlian- International (19 years old)
16. Spencer Hawes- Washington (Freshman)
17. Josh McRoberts- Duke (Sophmore)
18. Mike Conley Jr.- Ohio State (Freshman)
19. Nick Young- USC (Junior)
20. Corey Brewer- Florida (Junior)
21. Nicolas Batum- International (18 years old)
22. Al Horford- Florida (Junior)
23. Darren Collison- UCLA (Sophmore)
24. Acie Law- Texas A&M (Senior)
25. Jeff Green- Georgetown (Junior)
26. Taj Gibson- USC (Freshman [21])
27. Ty Lawson- North Carolina (Freshman)
28. Kyle Singler- HS (Senior)
29. Thaddeus Young- Georgia Tech (Freshman)
30. Brook Lopez- Stanford (Freshman)
31. Marco Belinelli- International (21 years old)
32. Roy Hibbert- Georgetown (Junior)
33. Al Thornton- Florida State (Senior)
34. Raymar Morgan- Michigan State (Freshman)
35. Bill Walker- Kansas State (Freshman)
36. Darrel Arthur- Kansas (Freshman)
37. Rudy Fernandez- International (21 years old)
38. Rodney Stuckey- Eastern Washington (Sophmore)
39. Tiago Splitter- International (22 years old)
40. Brandon Rush- Kansas (Sophmore)
41. Dominic James- Marquette (Sophmore)
42. Stephan Curry- Davidson (Freshman)
43. Kosta Koufos- HS (Senior)
44. DJ Augustine- Texas (Freshman)
45. Jason Smith- Colorado State (Junior)
46. Javaris Crittenton- Georgia Tech (Freshman)
47. Daequan Cook- Ohio State (Freshman)
48. Hasheem Thabeet- UConn (Freshman)
49. Derrick Byars- Vanderbilt (Senior)
50. Jerryd Bayless- HS (Senior)
51. Gabe Pruitt- USC (Junior)
52. Morris Almond- Rice (Senior)
53. Arron Afflalo- UCLA (Junior)
54. Tyler Hansbrough- North Carolina (Sophmore)
55. Aaron Gray- Pittsburgh (Sophmore)
56. Sean Singletary- Virginia (Junior)
57. Jared Dudley- Boston College (Senior)
58. Jerel McNeal- Marquette (Sophmore)
59. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute- UCLA (Sophmore)
60. Jeff Pendergraph- Arizona State (Sophmore)
61. Chris Lofton- Tennessee (Junior)
62. Ante Tomic-International (20 years old)
63. Nick Fazekas- Nevada (Senior)
64. DeVon Hardin- California (Junior)
65. Ron Steele- Alabama (Junior)
66. Glen Davis- LSU (Junior)
67. Alando Tucker- Wisconsin (Senior)

Pretty much perfect.

Well if you divide by two (I said most of these guys will be drafted within the next two years), then he would be the 11th pick so it's not off by much.

I will admit I'm not as high on him as others are.

The next Howard.

no Scottie Reynolds of Nova? He is gonna light it up this year, 20 ppg average guaranteed, and he had a 40 point game as a frosh last year, MORE THAN ANY OTHER FRESHMAN! Even Durant...

Ya, I saw him. Not impressed enough to put him on the list. Just a hog right now. Not very well rounded.

If I wanted to put a player like that on the list, I'd put Sosa from Louisville before Reynolds.

Josh Howard didn't disappear at Wake Forest and had 0 red flags.

He was overlooked in his draft. There are legitimate concerns about Marcus Williams that are pushing him into possibly the 2nd round.

But hey, he's your guy this year like Ronnie Brewer was my guy last year.

Sosa over him? Sosa had a much better supporting cast...Sumpter is really good, but tearing the same ACL twice withing 5 months will do something to your athletic ability, and Nardi was banged up the whole 2nd half. He had to lead them in scoring almost every night...

BTW, for those that are wondering, McRoberts and and M. Williams will be the biggest steals in the draft. Horford and Green will be the biggest let downs.

And my fave player on the whole list is Gallinari.

Since you went as young as 16, check out guys like Renardo Sidney and Lance Stephenson, or do they not qualify for your criteria?
