My Top 50 Freshman in College Basketball

This is a list of my top 50 freshman in college basketball entering the 2022-2023 season. This list is based of success I believe players will have at the collegiate level as well as their translatable NBA skills. (i.e. A player who I believe will be a top draft pick in the coming draft will likely be higher on the list than a player with better college stats and less NBA Draft success.)
