Yes, it’s way too early. Yes, a lot will change during the college basketball season. But no, there is nothing else going on. A few of the most notable mock draft and college basketball sites have released their top prospects since the 2013 NBA Draft last month, and this spreadsheet compiles the list into one. Because only two, NBA Draft and Walter Football, have actually assigned the players to teams so far, I’ve separated them in the first two lists.
I have also consolidated the lists into one consensus 2013 mock draft and Prospect list. It’s not official, but it gives a good idea where most of those in the know feel players will go as of now.
Adding up the points — 30 for 1st overall, and 1 for 30th overall — Andrew Wiggins is the clear-cut No. 1 overall pick at this stage. Julius Randle is hot on his tail, however. In total, there are currently six Kentucky Wildcats on the board; four of them good enough for the lottery.
For Kentucky, that is four players taken in the lottery. That would be quite the statement for Kentucky basketball. A long way to go, a lot of basketball to be played, but as you know… This coming season is going to be a lot of fun.
