Kentucky came in second with four. Here's his breakdown: LOUISVILLE: 5 Chane Behanan Luke Hancock Montrezl Harrell Chris Jones Russ Smith KENTUCKY: 4 Willie Cauley-Stein (#3 center) Andrew Harrison (#2 point guard) Alex Poythress (#6 small forward) Julius Randle (#3 power forward) ARIZONA: 3 Aaron Gordon T.J. McConnell Kaleb Tarczewski DUKE: 3 Rodney Hood Jabari Parker Rasheed Sulaimon SYRACUSE: 3 DaJuan Coleman C.J. Fair Jerami Grant Now, I understand the hesitancy to put freshman on preseason lists because they haven't played a college game yet, but considering the star power in UK's freshman class, I'd put Aaron Harrison and maybe even James Young on that list as well. Something tells me this list will look MUCH different come April. Check out DeCourcy's full rankings here: [Sporting News' college basketball player rankings: Who has the most elite players?]
