Anthony Davis may have overtaken Michael Gilchrist in the eyes of many recruiting analysts as the No. 1 player in the class of 2011, but the Chicago power forward doesn't appear to have the support of his peers.
In a survey of 30 of the nation's top high school players conducted by FoxSports.com's Jeff Goodman and Matt Norlander, Davis was not among the three leading vote-getters for best player in the class of 2011. Gilchrist and guard Austin Rivers each received seven votes and Florida-bound guard Bradley Beal earned six.
Naming the best player in their class was just one of 10 survey questions players answered in FoxSports.com's poll. They voted Beal the best shooter, Gilchrist the hardest worker and best defender, Kentucky-bound guard Marquis Teague the best play-maker and forward Quincy Miller the biggest trash talker.
Maybe the most impressive result was the landslide victory from Deuce Bello in the category of most athletic. The 6-foot-3 shooting guard from High Point, N.C. received 15 votes, at least 10 more than any other player in the category.
It will be interesting to see in the coming years whether the players were more accurate than the recruiting analysts, but there doesn't figure to be much argument on the Bello vote. Watch this highlight video, and see if you disagree.
