As we close in on the start of media days, it is nearly time for preseason watch lists to be unveiled.

Starting next week, 15 watch lists will be announced over a 12-day period. This morning, I am going to take a look into my crystal ball and guess the Big East players that are going to be featured on these watch lists. Typically, these lists feature anywhere between 35-50 players to watch.

Keep in mind this is not who I think should be on the lists, but rather how I think they are going to look.

I figure this will be an easy way for you to point and laugh at me once the lists start coming out.

Here are the lists:
