BEN SIMMONS, 2015: NO. 1
Ben Simmons, the No. 1 player of the 2015 class, probably didn’t live up to the hype during his one year at LSU. Sure, he put up huge numbers, averaging 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game, but he didn’t do enough to carry LSU to the NCAA Tournament after a disappointing 19-14 season.
Still, Simmons earned consensus All-American status during his one year as a Tiger, and did enough to be selected first overall in the 2016 draft.
