Archie Goodwin was ranked #3 in the CBS Freshman Player of the Year race but has dropped out of the top 5 in this week’s updated rankings.
1. Anthony Bennett, UNLV
2. Marcus Smart, OSU
3. Ben McLemore, Kansas
4. Jahii Carson, ASU
5. Nik Stauskas, MSU
There was plenty of shuffling in the rankings this week. With McLemore and Stauskas making their debuts, two players had to drop out: Xavier’s Semaj Christon and Kentucky’s Archie Goodwin. They were also two of the three players last cut.
As the team goes, so goes the freshman, so expect Archie and Nerlens Noel to jump back into the fray if the team turns it around.
