Ever wonder what the college basketball world would look like if the players had to stay for four years?
Well wonder no more. (Hint: Look at the picture above and blink a few times while pretending every time it's new, because the team on the stage likely wouldn't change for at least the next four years.)
The NBA no longer lets high schoolers jump straight to the league and most of them decide to spend that one season in the NCAA, which is like a tease to many fans who remember college basketball players actually sticking around for four years.
(I myself am not old enough to remember that ancient history, but I have heard stories.)
But here is how the college basketball world would look if every player in the 2009-2012 high school classes* were still in the college game.
*There may be a couple fifth year guys still hanging around as well.
