Number 41 – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, Fr., Kentucky

Kidd-Gilchrist, one quarter of the Fab Four of the Kentucky freshmen, might be the most competitive freshman in all of the country. He lost one game his senior season at the famed St. Anthony.

Like him, love him, don’t enjoy him or cringe when watching him, you know what you are going to get from the mini-magician for the Gators. Walker wants to be the go-to guy when it is time to look for someone to go to. And sometimes, he may not be the right shot but he’s going to take it any way.
