5-11 G, Jr., Delaware State

Jay Threatt, who originally enrolled at George Mason before transferring to Delaware State after his freshman season, is the best defender you've never heard of. All he did last season was lead the nation in steal percentage by a landslide, creating steals on 5.52 percent of opponents' possessions. That helped the Hornets finish No. 1 in the nation in defensive turnover percentage, at 28.3.
