Top 10 players: Atlantic 10/ CUSA Joe Jackson  PG  Memphis- 11.0pts. 3.9ast. Jackson’s been a bit inconsistent during his firsts two seasons, but he’s explosive and talented. I expect him to improve his shooting and decision making leading to a monster season. DeAndre Kane  SG  Marshall- 16.5pts. 5.4reb. Kane has been a stat machine the last two years, and will likely improve on them this year. He’s dangerous on the break and in the half court; there’s no real weakness in his game. Adonis Thomas  SF  Memphis- 8.8pts. 3.2reb. Thomas has started out slow in his college career, but in this his sophomore year he’ll untap his unlimited potential. A former top 15 recruit and likely first round draft pick once he’s ready. Juvonte Reddic  PF  VCU- 10.3pts. 6.7reb. Reddic has been a beast for this surprise team. His numbers, on paper, aren’t overly impressive, but his overall impact on a game is undeniable. If VCU is going to make the tournament again they’ll need him on the boards and in the paint. Rotnei Clarke  PG  Butler- Transfer/Arkansas He’s probably wishing he stayed in Arkansas with all the talent gathering there, but he will be Butler’s best player and fits coach Brad Stevens’ system perfectly. Keith Clanton  PF  Central Florida- 14.5pts. 8.1reb. The monster numbers and physical style of Clanton have gone relatively unnoticed so far, but if he improves into a 15-10 guy this season NBA scouts might start paying attention. Arsalan Kazemi  SF  Rice- 12.6pts. 10.1reb. Kazemi is one of the best in school history, and could play his way into the NBA with a good season. The Iranian will hope his improved play will lead to more wins for Rice this year. Chazz Williams  PG  Massachusetts- 16.9pts. 6.2ast. Williams transferred from Hofstra last year and was a revelation for UMass. This year he projects as a perfect point guard and leader in coach Kellogg’s fast paced, up-tempo offense. Khalif Wyatt  SG  Temple- 17.1pts. 3.3ast. Wyaff showed he’s for real with a 22 point effort against Duke last year. If he can handle the loss of Ramone Moore, and accept a lead role, it could be a big year for both him and Temple. Isaiah Sykes  SG  Central Florida- 12.3pts. 6.4reb. Sykes chose CF over Michigan and Tennessee for instant playing time and it’s been a good decision so far. Sykes is a natural slasher that can get to the basket and score points in bunches. If he can develop a more consistent jump shot he may have an NBA future. Top 5 freshmen Shaq Goodwin  SF  Memphis- The McDonald’s All-American will start at power forward this year. His versatility and athleticism will certainly be welcomed. Darnell House  SG  Houston- This was a major coup for the Houston coaching staff. He’s a consensus top 30 player in the class and could be a one and done. Jordan Burgess  SG  VCU- Burgess enters college as his brother Bradford leaves. He’s a top 100 recruit with a nice shooting touch. Melvin Johnson  SG  VCU- Johnson, also a top 100 recruit, will give VCU a nice 1-2 punch in the backcourt for the next four years. Danrad Knowles  PF  Houston- Another top 75 recruit gives Houston a very good head start when they join the Big East next year.
