First Team All-American Doug McDermott  6-9  Jr.  Creighton- Harrison Barnes, his former high school teammate, got all the attention, but McDermott is a coach’s son and gives his all night in and night out Cody Zeller  6-10  So.  Indiana- Zeller is expected to take off this year, and I haven’t seen anything from him to dispute that. Shabazz Muhammad  6-4  Fr.  UCLA- Muhammad possesses all the tools and could be the player of the year if he can put them all together.  Nerlens Noel  6-10  Fr.  Kentucky- Noel gained college eligibility a year early, and will now start in Calipari’s fast-paced system. An almost certain one and done. C.J. Leslie  6-9  Jr.  NC State- Leslie stayed in school to win a championship, so I know he’ll be motivated. He’s the kind of player that can win a game for his team. He’s my preseason pick for player of the year. Second Team All-American Trey Burke  5-11  So.  Michigan- Burke is small in stature, but there’s nothing small about his game. If she can shoot more consistently this season Michigan will have a chance to win the Big10. Mike Moser  6-8  Jr.  UNLV- Moser is an imposing player that has improved immensely the last two years. His next step will be leading UNLV to a Final Four. Isaiah Cannon  6-0  Sr.  Murray State- Cannon is an elite scorer and explosive talent. His size diminishes his value for the NBA, but he could be nation’s leading scorer this season. Phil Pressey  5-11  Jr.  Missouri- Pressey will be on his own in the backcourt with Dixon suspended indefinitely, but I don’t see that being a problem. James McAdoo  6-8  So.  North Carolina- McAdoo struggled early last year, but finished strong. If he improves upon that he could challenge for player of the year. Third Team All-American Pierre Jackson  5-10  Sr.  Baylor- Jackson is a quick, feisty game-changer that ended up being a pleasant surprise for Baylor last year. He will have some help in freshman sensation Isaiah Austin. DeShawn Thomas  6-7  Sr.  Ohio State- Thomas is finally the undisputed leader and best player on the team. He has no glaring weaknesses in his game offensively and defensively. Michael Snaer  6-5  Sr.  Florida State- Snaer is the best wing defender in the nation and possesses a pretty sweet shooting stroke as well. Peyton Siva  6-1  Sr.  Louisville- Siva won’t wow anyone with any aspect of his game, but he’s solid and gets the job done for a team looking to get to the Final Four in back to back seasons.  Michael Carter-Williams  6-5  So.  Syracuse- I think he has first team talent with his amazing vision and classy shooting stroke. I’m predicting him to make a huge leap in production this year.
