Where are the top NBA prospects in the Big Ten? 


So says DraftExpress.

The draft analysts from that service rank Indiana 6-foot-8 sophomore forward OG Anunoby as the top NBA prospect from the league and 6-foot-10 sophomore center Thomas Bryant as the second best.

“NBA scouts search the globe for combo forwards who can guard 1-4, make a standstill three, attack a closeout and play within a system,” Mike Schmitz of DraftExpress wrote of Anunoby.

“At 6-8 with elite length, a tremendous frame, sharp instincts on D and a high motor, Anunoby will be in high demand.”

Anunoby and Bryant both took looks at the NBA after their freshman seasons before deciding to return to IU.

NBA scouts already have been to IU practices to see IU’s potential 2017 draft entrants, including Anunoby, Bryant and junior shooting guard James Blackmon Jr.
