Honestly, probably Carmelo was one of the best. He was pretty damn good at Syracuse.

Evan Turner was excellent also at Ohio State. But the very best? Give me some time...

Around 2010 I started to follow college bball closely. Davis is so far the most dominant player I've seen at that level.

I don't know about the best ever, but Tyler Hansbrough was something special in college.

NBA players hate his physicality, in college kids just didn't know what to do. He had a 40 point game as a Freshman against an ACC team(Georgia Tech).

Durant or Melo. Anthony Davis is a good call also.

Anthony Davis just straight up dominated. There was not a second where you doubted he was getting drafted number one overall.

Hard to call one special name. There have been so many College players which could or would deserve to be mentioned.

JJ Redick and Jimmer Fredette were both very dominant as seniors.

Pistol Pete is the greatest college player ever. Manning, Robertson, Bird were also great, Hank Gathers is another great college player who sadly had his life cut short.

JJ Redick yes I agree but Jimmer? Wasn't he only good because he had that ridiculous range,or was he actually dominant? I didn't really follow him much but thats just my thought

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a probably the college GOAT.

But that I saw, Danny Manning or Waymon Tisdale.

They both had insane range, but Redick was more of the Reggie Miller type where he came off screens, and Jimmer the Curry type where he handled the ball and pulled up from everywhere.

I don't remember who Redick's teammates were, but I'm pretty sure they were significantly better than whoever Jimmer had given he played for Duke as opposed to BYU. Jimmer carried his team hard.
