Syracuse's Tyler Ennis Ranked Ahead Of Jerami Grant In SB Nation's Top 100 List

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Right or wrong, it seems a lot of people are starting to like Syracuse's freshman point guard Tyler Ennis.

Remember earlier in the day when I wrote a piece about Jerami Grant being arguably the second-best player on the Syracuse Orange basketball roster this season and supported that thought with SB Nation's list of 100 Best College Players?

Haha. Well, I should have waited a few hours until SB Nation's Mike Rutherford released his list from 80-61 because lo and behold at No. 70 is freshman point guard Tyler Ennis!

70. Tyler Ennis, FR, G, Syracuse

The freshman from Canada played extremely well during Syracuse's four-game exhibition tour in August, and knows he'll be relied upon heavily on a team without any other true point guard. His outside shot is streaky at best, but Ennis has the quickness, the poise and the pieces around him to run the show effectively for Jim Boeheim right out of the gate.

Again, I will start off by saying it is very hard to do one of these lists and Mike is doing a good job of at least getting exposure to players that may not get it.

With that said, without actually seeing Ennis play in a regular season game, it is hard to have a freshman ranked ahead of Grant, who's No. 94 on the list. Ennis ranked higher than Seton Hall's Fuquan Edwin (No. 73) and Marquette senior forward Jamil Wilson (80), but below Louisville's Luke Hancock (66) and Kentucky freshman Aaron Harrison (61).

So folks, what do you think? I think it is nice to have at least three players on the Top 100 list.
