The Senior CLASS Award was born in 2001 when Dick Enberg suggested it during a broadcast of the Final Four. The CLASS acronym stands for "Celebrating Loyalty and Achievment for Staying in School." As described, the award is given to the outstanding student-athlete who is also a senior.
Previous winners include Jimmer Fredette, Tyler Hansbrough, Jameer Nelson, and Shane Battier. Last year's winner was Jordan Hulls from Indiana.
Here are my predictions for the 10 finalists this year:
Aaron Craft, Ohio State
Cleanthony Early, Wichita State
Joe Harris, Virginia
Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati
Doug McDermott (winner), Creighton
Preston Medlin, Utah State
Augustine Rubit, South Alabama
Russ Smith, Louisville
Okaro White, Florida State
Patric Young, Florida
