With the role of the freshmen ever increased in college basketball, this class provides the game with a number of instant impact players.
Kansas State-bound forward Michael Beasley remains at the top after his MVP performance in the McDonald's All-American game and other postseason events. Indiana signee Eric Gordon remains at the second overall spot and has instant all-conference talent. Gordon's summer teammate Derrick Rose, who will play at Memphis next year, stays at the third position.
USC-bound guard O.J. Mayo made a slight move up to No. 4 overall with his strong showing in the second half of his senior season. Oregon will probably never see a 1-2 punch quite like Kyle Singler and Kevin Love, who check in at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.
Bill Walker was a midseason addition at Kansas State and is considered a 2007 recruit. He kept his spot at No. 7 overall. Walker tore his ACL shortly into his freshman year.
