LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 3, 2012) — College Basketball Nation, an ESPN blog, says the University of Kentucky Wildcats will likely dominate the 2013 NBA draft, too.
Blogger Eamonn Brennan says Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel is the early favorite to be the No. 1 overall selection in next year’s draft. Meanwhile, incoming Kentucky freshman Alex Poythress is ranked No. 5 in Ford’s 2013 top 100 Insider, while classmate Archie Goodwin comes in at No. 17 overall, Brennan says.
“Throw in power forward Kyle Wiltjer, and point guard Ryan Harrow, both of whom could have big seasons in starting roles, and while the Wildcats’ talent won’t come anywhere close to 2012’s heights, it’s clear they are still the leaders in the 2013 NBA draft clubhouse,” Brennan says.
