Through the 1990s and early 2000s, being a first-team All-American required some experience on the college level.
David Stern changed that with the NBA’s age limit. From 1990 through 2006, there was not one freshman on the Associated Press All-American first-team. Since the age limit went into effect in 2007, there have been eight.
The odds are at least one freshman will make it on the team next season. These 10 should be on the preseason watch list.
