Thanks to a very, very talented freshmen class, the 2014 NBA Draft is stacked with future stars. This could be one of the best draft classes in quite some time now. That tends to happen when you have players like Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker in the draft.

Now that many players have already decided to take their talents to the next level, let’s take a look at five players who are making the right choice by declaring.

Marcus Smart probably should have entered the draft after his freshman season, but that is alright. He was one of the best players in college hoops this season despite his suspension and Oklahoma State not meeting expectations. He should still get picked up in the top 10.

Andrew Wiggins, Kansas

Players as talented as Andrew Wiggins do not come back for another season. Wiggins could have easily entered the draft right out of high school, but there are rules against that nowadays. He could go No. 1 overall and he could be the next best thing since LeBron James.

Julius Randle, Kentucky

Randle was a double-double machine all season long. He already has an NBA body. I am sure scouts loved the fact that he was so dominant in the post as well. Like most players entering the draft, Randle has some things he has to work on, but he could be a very good starter in the NBA.

Jabari Parker, Duke

Jabari Parker is probably the best player in the draft right now. Players like Andrew Wiggins could have more potential, but Parker is as ready as they come when it comes to making the leap to the next level. Plus, he has a chance to go No. 1 overall.

Kyle Anderson, UCLA

Kyle Anderson did not get the most national attention this year, but at 6-foot-9, he showed that he can do a number of different things. After all, Anderson did average 14.6 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game and 6.5 assists per game this season.
