ANTHONY DAVIS, 2011: NO. 1
In a class that included Bradley Beal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Austin Rivers, it was Anthony Davis who earned top billing.
And rightfully so.
Davis spent just one year at Kentucky, averaging 14.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 blocks per game, and helping guide the Wildcats to the first national title since 1998, their eighth overall. Davis earned a multitude of awards as a freshman, including the Wooden Award, the Rupp Trophy and the SEC Player of the Year.
He then went on to the NBA, becoming the No. 1 overall pick of the 2012 draft, and earning even more accolades as a professional.
