I'd be tempted to go Laettner, in terms of who I've watched a decent amount of.
I just constantly watched him thinking he was kinda overrated, only to have him destroy a team.

That's also around the time I really got heavily into college ball, though, and I'm sure that coloured my view.

Funnily enough, some of the better college players I watched I was sure would not live up to the hype. Wasn't always right on that.

Laettner, Hansborough and Curry were 3 I definitely thought would be limited at the NBA level.
I don't think I was massively high on Noah either.

Noone was playing anywhere like this guy when he honed what would become "Showtime" in a few years at the next level.

He really was a singular talent and the most exciting college player I ever was privileged to see operate.

Not highlights, just the way he brought it every night-

Glenn Robinson in the 93-94 season was the most dominant college player I've ever seen (aside from that horrid Duke game!!) since I started watching NCAA ball in the mid 80s.
