There’s plenty of pressure already on Arizona Wildcats freshman Deandre Ayton, but Hall of Famer Charles Barkley just took it to another level.

Sir Charles was recently asked about the 2018 NCAA tournament. When asked who he thought would be the No. 1 pick in this year’s NBA draft, the Inside the NBA analyst not only named Ayton, but he gave some incredibly high praise:

"He’s a monster," Barkley said, via TMZ. "He’s the best college player I’ve seen in the last 20 years. He’s unbelievable."

The best college player in the last two decades. That’s quite the compliment, given that stars such as Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Stephen Curry have all taken the college basketball world by storm during that period of time.

Ayton led Arizona to both the Pac-12’s regular-season and conference tournament titles, averaging 20.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks as a freshman. With the 7’1" Wildcat in the mix for the top overall pick this June, his game will be under a microscope during March Madness.
