Austin Freeman, clap, clap, clap clap clap

Luke Winn has him as his #13 freshman in college basketball this year. What is particularly great is that Freeman will not be expected to contribute in the way many of his contemporaries on this list will. In fact, much of what he gives us will be gravy.

The Hoyas' one glaring void during their run to the '07 Final Four was an elite two-guard. Too bad Freeman, a renowned mid-range scorer and quality perimeter shooter, couldn't have joined the team a year earlier. He should fit nicely into Georgetown's guard rotation behind Jonathan Wallace and Jessie Sapp, who are both savvy floor generals in the modified Princeton offense, but lack offensive skill-sets as polished as Freeman's.
