Perhaps never before has there been as much parity in college basketball as there has been this season. Teams entering the season on labeled as national championship contenders such as Duke and Michigan have struggled to make an impact this season while San Diego State, whom was supposed to be having a transition year this year, is ranked in the Top 10.

One thing that has remained consistent, however, has been the hype surrounding the 2013-14 freshman class as we draw closer to the 2014 NBA Draft. Entering the season it was Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins that had the eyes and the hearts of America (and Canada). Since then a lot has transpired and it appears that Wiggins may no longer be the top dog in this prized fight–the fight being the right to become to top overall selection in the draft come June.

Parity can remain among the teams but the top freshmen have been considered the top freshmen all season long. Where those freshmen rank amongst each other is up for debate. We ignite that debate once more.

Who’s the leader of the young men and who has the inside edge to be the first to have David Stern announce his name in the NBA Draft? We examine here.

    Wiggins fourth? Go home, stats junkie. Wiggins has his first wow game of the season? You’re ridiculous. He is playing on a more balanced team than any of the others, getting his numbers in rhythm, not because he’s the only choice. Jabari is dropping like a rock.

    Guess how poorly Parker is playing so far in conference play just went unnoticed?? Not the best freshman currently.
