College basketball is full of star players, but only a select few get to be called All-Americans.
Whether it is The Associated Press version or one from another outlet, making an All-American team in a sport with more than 350 teams is among the top honors possible for a collegiate athlete. Such teams are picked based on a combination of performance and popularity, with most of the spots often getting filled by well-known stars from major programs.
Entering the 2013-14 season, Creighton's Doug McDermott had a good chance to grab another slew of All-American nods thanks to his placement on past national lists. The same went for big names like Shabazz Napier and Russ Smith, who entered the year as known commodities with strong resumes, as well as hyped freshman stars such as Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins.
But not all All-Americans are set in stone ahead of time. Cincinnati's Sean Kilpatrick, Iowa State's Melvin Ejim and North Carolina State's T.J. Warren were all considered solid players heading into the season, but to predict than any (let alone all) of them would be among the nation's best at year's end would have required a master psychic.
Using our own crystal ball, we've scoured through the projected rosters for 2014-15 to pick out 10 players who have a chance to make it onto next year's All-American team based on what they could do this upcoming season. You've probably heard of most of them, but now you'll know a lot more about these potential sleeper All-Americans.
