College Hoops 2011-12: Jared Sullinger, Harrison Barnes and the Top 25 Players

With the May 8 withdrawal date looming, college basketball fans, players and coaches wait anxiously to see who will be back with their teams and who won't.

Some high-profile players have already made their intentions known. North Carolina became an instant national title contender when Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller and John Henson announced they were returning to the Heels.

Others, such as Kawhi Leonard of San Diego State, Jordan Hamilton of Texas, Kemba Walker of Connecticut and Kyrie Irving are gone, having hired agents and thus ending their college eligibility.

In less than a week, we'll all know for sure who's going and who's staying.

The players that comprise this list are all ones who I feel will be playing in college next season. There may be a couple who end up staying in the draft, in which case some shifting of the players on the list would be necessary.

Similarly, I've excluded players that I don't feel will be back. For example, arguments could be made for either Tobias Harris or Scotty Hopson, or both, to be on the list but I just don't see them returning to that situation in Tennessee.

There are different reasons for including a player on a "top whatever" list. And sometimes it isn't always the players from the big schools that get the notoriety.
