The Way-Too-Early Top 25 rankings for next season in college basketball have been updated, and with that, weve decided to look beyond the on-the-court talent and see what lies in the future. Jaleel Johnson Youth Jersey . Which players, after they get done walking the walk, will talk the talk? We look at the next great broadcaster on each of the nations best teams.1. Duke Blue Devils: Amile Jefferson The senior forward already has a solid template of former Blue Devils-turned-analysts/broadcasters to follow. His trademark would probably come from his willingness to call it like he sees it. Hes already getting plenty of practice doing that on the court, where before he was injured last season, he was the unequivocal floor leader for the Blue Devils. Jefferson is the voice his teammates hear, in addition to the coaches, if something needs to be corrected. -- C.L. Brown2. Villanova Wildcats: Kris Jenkins Even before he made the shot to win the national title, Jenkins earned the nickname Big Smoove, thanks to Fox play-by-play man Gus Johnson. Though publicly quiet, Jenkins has a sharp wit that hes not afraid to share and always appears to be hiding a secret. Hed be the cool-cat version of an analyst. -- Dana ONeil3. Kentucky Wildcats: Bam Adebayo Gregarious big men seem to find more success in the broadcast world than their peers who played on the perimeter. Shaquille ONeal, Chris Webber, Charles Barkley and Bill Walton all retained the prominence they enjoyed in their basketball careers when they became on-air talents after retirement. Adebayo competes with a raw intensity that turned the 6-foot-9, 260-pound talent into a five-star recruit. Off the court, the world seems to orbit around the freshman who cant stop smiling. Fans want his autograph and his teammates cling to his energy. Plus, his nickname is Bam because he flipped a coffee table while watching the The Flintstones when he was a kid. And then theres this Adebayo comment from a recent CoachCal.com video: Ill just listen to my Katy Perry and keep it moving. Put him on TV. -- Myron Medcalf4. Kansas Jayhawks: Josh Jackson Though just a freshman, Jackson has already built a formidable reputation for talking a good game. Take it from The Undefeateds Marc J. Spears: His name is Josh Jackson, and he possesses both a standout game that could make him the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA draft and trash-talking skills that already compete with the likes of all-star yappers [Gary] Payton and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. Any 19-year-old who can, as Jackson himself put it, talk smack to a Hall of Famer like Payton has the self-confidence necessary to project an authoritative aura on the airwaves. You can look forward to seeing Jackson doing the analysis on a college game near you once he gets this whole playing thing out of the way. -- John Gasaway5. Virginia Cavaliers: Jack Salt Who wouldnt like a little Kiwi flavor in a broadcast? The redshirt sophomore center is a native of Auckland, New Zealand, and still has his accent fully intact. Salt would literally bring a distinctive voice to calling names, and his metaphors and vernacular might take some time to get used to hearing. But every game he called would be like getting an international education. -- Brown6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Theo Pinson We already know Pinson isnt shy. He memorably crashed the Tar Heels pregame press conference before the regional final of the NCAA tournament, walking on the dais and asking where his seat was (um, only starters, Theo). A baffled and amused Roy Williams said he was fairly certain hed never seen that happen in all his years of coaching. -- ONeil7. Oregon Ducks: Dillon Brooks Throughout the NCAA tournament, Oregons star guard led his teammates with his production and his passion. Before the Ducks defeated Duke in the Elite Eight, the Canadian standout told the world he did not fear the Blue Devils. Then he scored 22 points and connected on 4-of-9 beyond the arc. He also trash-talked Duke throughout the game, which led to the mini-controversy over what coach Mike Krzyzewski said to Brooks in the handshake line. Brooks is brash. And thats a great quality for any broadcaster. As an analyst, he wouldnt hold back. Who wants to see an analyst with dry commentary? We love Bill Walton because you know hes ignoring anything his producers are suggesting through his earpiece. Charles Barkley just hops onto his soapbox and rants. Thats attractive. Brooks has that quality. If he has something to say, youll know it. -- Medcalf8. Wisconsin Badgers: Nigel Hayes Hayes will be the Bill Walton of college hoops announcers in the 2050s. Whether its his memorable press conferences, his winning ways on social media, or even his feats of renown on the basketball court itself, its clear that this is Hayes trajectory -- nay, his destiny. In 40 years hell be courtside waxing nostalgic about how back in his day young people used good old-fashioned Snapchat and didnt need all this fancy-schmancy thought teleportation that the kids are using nowadays. All Hayes will require is a catchphrase ... Onomatopoeia? -- Gasaway9. Xavier Musketeers: Edmond Sumner Big smile, sharp dresser, Sumner already looks the TV part. Hes also been through the rigors of college basketball -- a bad injury, that scary fall at Villanova, and then the surprising out-of-world talent that turned everyones head -- and hed had have plenty of insight into the game. -- ONeil10. Michigan State Spartans: Lourawls Tum Tum Nairn With a nickname like Tum Tum, Nairn would bring a blend of personality and life experience to the broadcast booth. He could speak on his journey from the Bahamas to sharing a Florida house with 20 other hoop dreamers at a diploma mill basketball academy. Hed be the kind of storyteller who would keep an audience captivated for what was next. -- Brown11. Indiana Hoosiers: Collin Hartman This past summer, Hartman completed an internship with a Greek restaurant in Bloomington. An experience like that can give a future college hoops analyst a go-to fund of anecdotes and vignettes, a bit like Dick Vitale and his stint as head coach of the Detroit Pistons. More practically, Hartman has recognized that going into restaurant management after college could be one of the most competitive businesses you can get into. That is so true?-- a career in announcing may be a cakewalk by comparison. -- Gasaway12. Arizona Wildcats: Parker Jackson-Cartwright Coach Sean Miller will again field a team thats capable of winning the Pac-12 title and making a deep run in the NCAA tournament. He needs Jackson-Cartwright to help lead an athletic, explosive group that includes Ray Smith?(who missed last season due to injury), Allonzo Trier and Kobi Simmons. Jackson-Cartwright finished the 2015-16 season with assists on more than one-quarter of his possessions. The point guard understands the game, and thats the most significant quality for an analyst. During interviews, hes always thoughtful and measured with his responses. Every broadcast needs a guy to balance the Waltons and Barkleys out there. Jackson-Cartwright does that on the court, and he could do the same in front of the camera. -- Medcalf13. Louisville Cardinals: Donovan Mitchell Upon reading projections that Duke was the likely preseason No. 1 team, Mitchell took to Instagram. He posted a picture of himself nearly inside a Duke huddle with an emoji caption and greater than symbols that implied Louisville would be better. That sums up why Mitchell would do well behind a microphone. Hed be unafraid to make those statements that go against popular opinion. -- Brown14. Purdue Boilermakers: Spike Albrecht Imagine him sitting back, getting all Walton-esque as he spins a few yarns from his Final Four experience -- you know, the one where he came out of nowhere to stun Rick Pitino and practically steal the game away from Louisville and then proceeded to call out Kate Upton. Who knows? Maybe he could even get Upton to sit in for a segment. -- ONeil15. West Virginia Mountaineers: Teyvon Myers He averaged just 2.4 PPG in less than 10 minutes per game last season. But the seniors limited playing time didnt stop him from encouraging his teammates from the sideline. Hes the energy guy for the Mountaineers. His pregame wisecracks and in-game emotion lift the entire arena. Hes the guy who, from the bench, begs fans to stand and cheer. Myers says his junior college coaches would often tell him to sit down and relax on the bench. So hed grab a cup of water and pretend to drink just so he could remain on his feet. You can feel the energy from a good on-air personality. This is not something Myers would wrestle with as an analyst. -- Medcalf16. Gonzaga Bulldogs: Przemek Karnowski Karnowski has the depth of experience any announcer needs. He has logged not four but five seasons in college, rehabbed to overcome a significant injury, reached an Elite Eight and even represented his country of origin (Poland) in the European championships. If Karnowski is doing the analysis on a game someday and the action on the court turns into a blowout, his rich and varied biography will give him the ability to fill the air time. -- Gasaway17. UCLA Bruins: Lonzo Ball Like your broadcasts peppered with pop-culture references? Ball would be the guy youd want calling a game. (Check out his #sogonechallenge on Twitter @Zo2.) Ball would not be the type to make every outcome seem so dramatic. Hed keep it lighthearted and fun. -- Brown18. Maryland Terrapins: Jaylen Brantley/Jared Nickens Sorry, you cant take one without the other. The two guys who turned the Running Man Challenge into a viral video craze showed their offbeat humor in their initial throwdown to other college players. Plus, theyve already appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. They wouldnt be intimidated talking on camera. -- ONeil19. Saint Marys Gaels: Dane Pineau Randy Bennett coached two of the stars on Australias national team, Matthew Dellavedova and Patty Mills, at Saint Marys. The duo helped their team push the American squad to the brink in the Olympics. Bennetts 2016-17 squad is also loaded with Australian talent. The Gaels are the West Coasts most underrated team entering the season. Pineau, who averaged 11.3 PPG and 8.1 RPG last season, should help the Gaels compete for the West Coast Conference title again. Hes also the teams top prospect for a career in television. The Australians accent helps. Plus, hes eclectic. In this interview, he admits hes a fan of Friends and DJ Khaled. What else do you need to know? -- Medcalf20. Creighton Bluejays: Maurice Watson, Jr. A point guard who arrived in Omaha by way of his native Philadelphia and then Boston University, Watson has summed up a broadcast personalitys role succinctly (even if he was talking about basketball). I just want to get everybody involved, Watson has said. I want to get the basketball in the right spot and be the catalyst. Sounds like a true announcing star in the making. -- Gasaway21. Rhode Island Rams: Hassan Martin/E.C Matthews These two would have to be hired as a pair. The Rams leaders have been compared to the iconic Nintendo game brothers Mario and Luigi, but a more fitting nickname might be Yin and Yang. Martin and Matthews are two different personalities, and when theyre ?together, they shine brighter as a tandem. -- Brown22. Cincinnati Bearcats: Kyle Washington Known for his high energy and high motor, Washington could bring the same verve to a broadcast. A self-described extrovert, you have to think the NC State transfer wouldnt be shy about sharing an opinion or two, either. -- ONeil23. Florida State Seminoles: Xavier Rathan-Mayes Its not easy to excel on TV. Sure, producers and crew members all help. But its kind of like writing without the ability to erase anything youve said. Thats a difficult spotlight for anyone on TV, even those who are trained. Many athletes have failed as broadcasters because they couldnt handle that consistent pressure. Rathan-Mayes could pursue a career in broadcast because he understands the demands that come with that spotlight. Hes playing at a university where his father, Tharon Mayes, recorded numbers that made him one of the greatest players in school history. Xavier wasnt afraid to follow that legacy. He faces questions about his fathers career every year. And he handles all of them with class and honesty. Thats why hed excel on TV if he decided to go that route after hes done with basketball. -- Medcalf24. Connecticut Huskies: Rodney Purvis Purvis is comfortable being the voice of veteran experience in a storied program he transferred into (from NC State) three years ago. During the offseason, the senior point guard took two of his newly arrived teammates out on a date, explaining that he wanted Juwan Durham and Vance Jackson to know Ive got their back, no matter what. This is what announcers do. They show initiative, go out to eat, and keep a close watch on who pays the tab -- They were surprised when I paid for the food, Purvis said -- for possible deployment as on-air ribbing at a later date. -- Gasaway25. Syracuse Orange: Tyler Lydon Some of the best basketball commentators throughout the years have been the ones who were the most unpredictable. Lydon fits that mold. Who knows if hed show up for a broadcast sporting that thin mustache, which has its own Twitter account. He just may weave hunting and fishing analogies into the game hes covering, since hed probably rather be outdoors anyway. Lydon has a dry wit about him that could make for entertaining banter, even during a blowout game. -- Brown Dalvin Cook Vikings Jersey . Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. Dalvin Cook Womens Jersey . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. http:///...Gedeon-Elite-Jersey/ . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. The gap separating defending national champion Alabama from its Southeastern Conference rivals doesnt seem to be closing.If anything, its getting wider.While every other team in the SEC either already has lost a game or had a relatively close call, No. 1 Alabama (2-0) has outscored its first two opponents 90-16 and is still finding things it could have done better .Its the Bama way, Alabama tight end O.J. Howard said. Its just the way that we carry ourselves. We are a hard-nosed football team. We want to play at our standard that makes people not want to play us anymore, and I think we didnt play that way Saturday. So its a disappointment right now.The seemingly widening gap is also disappointing for the rest of the league.A test of Alabamas superiority comes Saturday when it opens SEC competition at No. 19 Mississippi (1-1), the one team that seems to have the Crimson Tides number . Alabama is 0-2 against Ole Miss and 28-1 against all other opponents since the start of the 2015 season.I have great respect for (Alabama coach Nick Saban) and the job hes done, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. They just continue to stockpile depth with four- and five-star kids. Its very difficult to say that youre ever going to overcome the gap. I think weve closed it considerably. Obviously, the proof is on the field.No one in the league is conceding anything to the Crimson Tide. In some respects, the SEC looks as deep as ever with eight of its 14 members in this weeks Top 25 .The SECs the SEC, Tennessee defensive tackle Kendal Vickers said. Its why everybody wants to come to the SEC. Its the best conference in the world. Youll see when SEC play comes. Youll see all the talent that comes out.But a closer look at the poll indicates Alabama is indeed separating itself from everyone else.Alabama, which has won four of the last seven national titles, is the only SEC team ranked 14th or higher. That also was the case in the last two regular-season polls in 2015 before Ole Miss climbed to 10th in the final rankings.Before 2015, the last time only one SEC team was ranked 14th or higher was in the final poll of the 2000 season. The last time the SEC had only one team ranked in the top 14 of a September poll was in 1989.I think theres a little bit more of a gap, especially based on what weve seen the first two weeks, said SEC Network analyst Maarcus Spears, who played at LSU from 2001-04. Ben Gedeon Youth Jersey. They seem to be the only team that hasnt struggled to get wins. I think for the most part, though, its just so early. Youll see teams get better.Joining Alabama and Ole Miss in the Top 25 are No. 15 Tennessee, No. 16 Georgia, No. 17 Texas A&M, No. 20 LSU, No. 23 Florida and No. 24 Arkansas.All the ranked teams other than Ole Miss and LSU are undefeated but havent been dominant.Tennessee was taken to overtime by Appalachian State and erased an early 10-point deficit against Virginia Tech . Georgia eked out a two-point victory over Football Championship Subdivision program Nicholls. Texas A&M beat UCLA in overtime. Florida only led Massachusetts 10-7 through three quarters before pulling away for a 24-7 victory . Arkansas owns a one-point win over Louisiana Tech as well as an overtime road upset of TCU .Spears believes Alabamas top challenger is probably Texas A&M up to this point. He also mentioned Tennessee and Florida, though he noted the Volunteers need to let quarterback Joshua Dobbs use his athleticism like they did against Virginia Tech when they started having success and not try to make him a pocket passer.While there are questions about all the other SEC contenders, Alabama appears to have solved its biggest preseason concerns. Damien Harris has taken over for Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry and has averaged 9.1 yards per carry. Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts has seamlessly replaced Jake Coker.Alabama has signed the nations top recruiting class each of the last six years, according to composite rankings of recruiting websites compiled by 247Sports. That gives Alabama an edge in talent that can be difficult to overcome.Your depth chart may not be on the even playing field, Freeze said. But if you have a two-deep who are good enough to play and you get the right system and the right plan that has a chance to be successful against them, I think you have a fighting chance. Ill know more about that after Saturday.As will the rest of the league.---AP sports writers David Brandt in Oxford, Mississippi and John Zenor in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, contributed to this report.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
