KEVIN LOVE, 2007: NO. 5
Another floor-spacing big man, Kevin Love was likewise the fifth-ranked player in his class seven years prior to Towns. Love chose UCLA over offers from Arizona and Oregon, and once there, he teamed up with Westbrook for a year before both declared for the pros.
Love averaged 17.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game in college, and helped propel UCLA to the Final Four for the second year in a row. The Cleveland Cavaliers big man was also the Pac-10 Player of the Year during his lone season at UCLA, while achieving consensus All-American status.
