Harrison Barnes has been talked about for a while now.
He was one of the top recruits coming out of high school and has always been projected a lottery pick. Before he played a college game, Barnes was named to the preseason AP All-American team.
He has great size to succeed at the NBA level and can do a bit of everything.
Barnes had a solid career at North Carolina, but he never lived up to all the hype and was never able to consistently dominate at the college level.
As a freshman, he scored 40 points in an ACC tournament game against Clemson, an ACC record.
For every dominant performance, Barnes also showed that he could disappear and be a non-factor. In this year's NCAA tournament, Barnes shot 33 percent from the field and never provided the Tar Heels with a legitimate scoring threat.
When it comes to the NBA, Barnes will have to consistently perform every night. He is a guaranteed lottery pick and will have to play like one for an entire 82-game season.
