It is an ACC themed day here at Rant Sports Prep, but I promise to give the other conferences some love later this week.
The tweet below made me start to think about who would be first team All ACC next year, and I think that @Haberdashery1 hit the nail on the head with the picks of center Jahlil Okafor and point guard Marcus Paige. The other three are interesting picks, but there are other options in the conference that could have worked as well.

All in all, I cannot wait for college basketball to start again next season, and we will have to see if any of the other conferences can prove me wrong about the ACC. The biggest challenger might be the Big 12, because they have the big man talent to keep up with Okafor. The reason the Blue Devils stand out the most is because of the players they have surrounded their big man with, and it will definitely be something fun to keep an eye on as the year goes on.
That is all for Prep today, but we will also have a slideshow for you on how the draft shook out for my hometown team.
