Who was the best college player you seen?
 
Remember to keep their pro career success out of the discussion :no: Chris Paul and Kemba Walker were The two who impressed me the most. Michael Beasley was a gangsta too.

Len Bias is the first guy I really remember, but I was young, and access wasn't nearly like it is now.
I have very vivid memories of Derrick Coleman. And more still of Chris Webber, Shaq, and all three Duke guys from that era, Hurley/Hill/Laettner, all of whom I hated, and Jamal Mashburn.


Given the choice of all the guys I remember watching in college as pro prospects, not knowing how their careers would wind up, I'd go Shaq, Bias, Webber ahead of anyone else I can think of. Coleman would be up there too, but probably behind Duncan and maybe a few others.

I remember Emeka Okafor absolutely tearing it up at UConn.

Honestly, ADAM MORRISON was so raw in college. Okafor, Oden,

Melo was one of the best college players in history, as a freshman he led his team to NCAA title without much help.

Others: JJ, Hansborough, KHALID EL AMIN!!!,

Glenn Robinson almost literally unstoppable. And it has nothing to do with me being a Purdue fan.

Yep, forgot about Adam Morrison.

Also, JJ Redick was an absolute monster at Duke.

My lifetime:

In terms of career? Hansbrough.

In terms of sheer dominance? Chris Jackson, probably.

Ryan Gomes was a beast for Providence, don't know if I'd put him at #1 though.
