These are the five best players in college basketball.

Heading into the 2017-18 college basketball season, several big names already pleged themselves to the NBA. Kentucky's DeAaron Fox and Malik Monk, UCLA's Lonzo Ball, Duke's Jayson Tatum all announced they will enter the NBA Draft.

With those star players gone, ESPN looked ahead to the best players that will hit the court this year. One familiar names tops the list, and we're sure there will be plenty of controversy.

5. Jalen Brunson, Villanova Wildcats

4. Ethan Happ, Wisconsin Badgers

3. Bonzie Colson, Notre Dame Fighting Irish

2. Michael Porter Jr., Missouri Tigers

1. Grayson Allen, Duke Blue Devils

That's right, Grayson Allen tops the list. You can see the entire list, No. 1-25 from ESPN, here.
