Top prospects dish on the best players

We can see how scouts view the nation’s top college hoops prospects – generally on Rivals and Scout – but how do those prospects view each other? Jeff Goodman and Matt Norlander asked around.

Among 30 of the top recruits, Michael Gilchrist and Austin Rivers tied as the top player. Gilchrist also garnered the most votes as top defender and hardest worker. Small wonder the Kentucky-bound wing is viewed as perhaps the nation’s best recruit.

Philly’s Rakeem Christmas ran away with best forward honors, while St. Louis guard Brad Beal is seen as the best shooter.

But perhaps the most impressive result? North Carolina Deuce Bello got half the available votes for most athletic. That calls for a highlight tape of the 6-3 guard. Um, wow.

Mike Miller’s also on Twitter, usually talkin’ hoops. Click here for more.
