The talk coming into this season revolved around the amount of young stars who surprisingly decided to spend another year in school instead of jumping ship for the greener pastures of the NBA.
However, with the lockout looming, the decision to stick around undoubtedly made the decision easy for many of the young studs.
Mirroring the young talent that is in abundance on the hardwood this season is a slew of young and talented small forward prospects.
In the Top 10 small forwards so far this college basketball season, seven are either freshman or sophomores.
Enjoy these athletes while you can, because odds are, many of them will be testing the waters of the NBA draft at the end of this season.
