There’s still a long way to go before March Madness, but the top college basketball prospects are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

The SEC has produced several men’s hoops stars already this year, and many of them could hear their names called early in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Recently, CBS Sports analyst Kyle Boone updated his ranking of the top 50 2022 NBA Draft prospects, and he included 8 SEC stars:

  • No. 4 — Jabari Smith, Auburn
  • No. 6 — TyTy Washington, Kentucky
  • No. 16 — JD Davison, Alabama
  • No. 23 — Kennedy Chandler, Tennessee
  • No. 24 — Allen Flanigan, Auburn
  • No. 28 — Tari Eason, LSU
  • No. 44 — Daimion Collins, Kentucky
  • No. 48 — Keon Ellis, Alabama

There’s still some time left for other guys to improve their draft stock. We’ll see how things play out over the next couple of months.
