Connecticut...EASILY...especially for big guys. half of the UCONN players in the NBA were not even on Duke and NC's radar coming out of high school. Hilton Armstrong was awful and was the skinniest player I have ever seen when he was a freshman. 4 years at UCONN and he developed an inside game, became a beast on defense, and ended up being a lottery pick...and will end up being a successful NBA player.

Hah, Hilton played two years in college. You obviously didn't watch hard enough.

Nevermind, I'm the idiot. you're right. I had him confused with Cedric Simmons, who was also drafted by NOH. I'm sorry.

Why didn't you mention Arizona as a option?

Mike Bibby
Jason Terry
Gilbert Arenas
Marcus Williams
Luke Walton
Richard Jefferson
Channing Frye
Andre Igoudala
Salim Stoudemire
Damon Stoudemire

Pretty Damn good list. Lute Olson also runs a offense that is very similar to a lot of NBA offenses. Makes the transition from college to NBA that much easier.

I'd have to go with UConn for the same reason PK said. They've had a bunch of guys who weren't megastars coming into college that developed into 1st-rounders. Either Calhoun has a tremendous eye for under-the-radar talent or that staff just does a better job at developing talent than most.

Obviously they've had their fair share of blue-chip recruits, like Rudy Gay and Charlie Villanueva, as well. But the overwhelming majority of the players Duke and UNC send to the NBA are that caliber of recruit, guys that would have become quality NBA players no matter where they went.

Yes that's right. Great point with Arizona.

Kentucky, oddly enough, is quite mediocre.

Kansas is exceptional, but not great.

Maryland has done well with what they've had.

MSU.. not so much. Poor Mateen Cleaves. J-Rich got to cover for him
