Ranking Every Freshman NCAA Title Run Since 2010
Jun 12, 2020For a number of reasons, there has been a huge uptick in the past 10 years in the number of freshmen having success at the Division I level. From 2000-2009, there were four freshmen NCAA champions. From 2010-2019, there 13. That's over a 300% increase! We're now averaging more than one freshman champion per year. Anyway, I love ranking things, and I think many people enjoy critiquing my rankings, so I decided to rank every D1 NCAA title run made by a freshman, true or redshirted, from the past 11 years.
