Show me your sources that say this then..prove it to me you know what you think I don't know. Do you honestly think I don't read about college basketball?
Love is a post player and Singler is more of a three. Have you even seen Kevin Love play? Love's arms look like tree trunks and Singler looks more like Mike Dunleavy. Two completey different players, and Love is better at this point in their careers.
Singler ranks comfortably behind the other following freshman so far:
1) Michael Beasley
1b) OJ Mayo
2) Eric Gordon
3) Derrick Rose
4) Kosta Koufos
5) Kevin Love
6) Jerryd Bayless
7) Donte Greene
8) JJ Hickson
Here are some 2008 Mock Drafts. I do not see Singler's name on here, nor do I expect to. If the kid was top 5 as you say, he'd be on this list.
You probably read sites like Rivals and Scout, and Rivals ranks Singler as the #11 best Small Forward in college basketball. That's 10 players behind guys that play the same position, let alone in all of college basketball.
Kid has work to do.
