Making the Madness is back with the annual Top-100 players in College Basketball list. The list is always very fun to make and especially to look back at. Not every ranking will be correct and that’s part of the process when it comes to trying to rank 100 basketball players in any order.
There are a couple of quick notes about the list before we begin. First, while it is unknown exactly what year of eligibility a player might classify as going into this year, because of the free-year of eligibility given out, for argument’s sake, each player will be given a one-year advancement from what year in College they were last season (ex. a freshman last year, advances to sophomore, so on and so forth). Second, when it comes to the rankings, the list will try to look at the overall value that a player has on the sport, statistics are a factor but things that aren’t on the box score are another factor. Without any further introduction, here is the Making the Madness Top 100 players in College Basketball.
1.Drew Timme – Junior, Gonzaga
2020-21 Stats: 19.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 2.3 APG
Drew Timme comes into this season as the Player of the year favorite and for good reason as well as he was a First-Team All American a season ago. Timme is an outstanding big man that is a great throwback, post-up big, he can score extremely efficiently, he’s a good rebounder and overall he is extremely skilled. Look for him to have a big season once again while looking to lead the Bulldogs to their first-ever National Championship.
2.Johnny Juzang – Junior, UCLA
2020-21 Stats: 16.0 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 1.6 APG
The biggest star of the NCAA Tournament is back to try to lead UCLA back to the Final Four and potentially to a National Championship, as Johnny Juzang is returning to UCLA for his junior season. Juzang was inconsistent throughout the regular season but turned it around for the NCAA Tournament. Juzang’s tough shot-making ability is maybe the best in the sport, while he’s a good shooter and overall scorer, who excels at making guarded shots. Look for him to continue to develop his game, while he looks to be a more consistent scorer throughout the regular season.
3.Paolo Banchero – Freshman, Duke
Coach K’s final season will wrap up with the Blue Devils possibly having the best freshman in the sport in Paolo Banchero. Banchero has all the physical skill sets to be great as he has the size, strength, and athleticism all needed to be great, while his ability to make shots is also very important. Look for him to come in and be the likely ACC Player of the year and a potential National Player of the year candidate for a Blue Devils team that has a chance to send Coach K out as a National Champion.
4.Chet Holmgren – Freshman, Gonzaga
Chet Holmgren is the best recruit in Gonzaga program history and he has a chance to also be one of the best players in program history, despite being a likely one-and-done. Holmgren is 7’0, with shades of Kevin Durant because of his scoring ability at his size, which makes him an impossible guard while defensively he sets up to be an elite help-side defender because of his elite shot-blocking ability. His lack of strength may be an issue but with the roster fit around him, he will be able to play his own game and play it at an extremely high level.
5.Kofi Cockburn, Junior, Illinois
2020-21 Stats: 17.7 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 1.3 BPG
In a league known for big men, Kofi Cockburn is certainly the biggest and maybe the best one in the league because of his size and scoring ability. Cockburn is 7’1, 285 pounds of pure force, he’s a good athlete, a great low-post scorer who makes even bigger centers look small at times. While Cockburn played second fiddle last year, that will change as he will become the primary option for the Illini, while he is likely the preseason favorite to win Big Ten Player of the year.
6.Hunter Dickinson – Sophomore, Michigan
2020-21 Stats: 14.1 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 1.4 BPG
Hunter Dickinson was someone who was not expected to be a big contributor right away but he delivered and exceeded expectations, becoming the interior anchor for Michigan last season. Dickinson now returns as the clear go-to guy and as one of the best players in College Basketball because of his size, physicality, and ability to score down low. Look for Dickinson to continue to be a great interior scorer, while helping the Wolverines once again contend for a National Championship and potentially repeating as Big Ten Champions.
7.Trayce Jackson-Davis – Junior, Indiana
2020-21 Stats: 19.1 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 1.4 BPG
The Mike Woodson era has gotten off to a successful start, mostly because they were able to return a likely All-American in Trayce Jackson-Davis. Jackson-Davis is a great low-post scorer, rebounder, and solid defender, while he is the clear go-to option for the Hoosiers this season. Look for him to clear the 20 point-per-game threshold while leading Indiana to their first NCAA Tournament since 2016.
8.Max Abmas, Junior, Oral Roberts
2020-21 Stats: 24.5 PPG, 3.8 APG, 3.2 RPG
Max Abmas had one of the great seasons in mid-major history and with his return, he has a chance to go down as one of the best mid-major players of all time. Abmas is a 6’1 guard that is a superb scorer, he’s a great three-point shooter, free throw shooter, and just knows how to put the ball in the basket, he wound up leading College Basketball in scoring last season, en route to helping Oral Roberts reach the Sweet 16. Abmas returns with a good chance to lead College Basketball in scoring again, while he will help make his case as one of the greatest mid-major players we’ve ever seen.
9.Jaden Ivey – Sophomore, Purdue
2020-21 Stats: 11.1 PPG 1.9 APG, 3.3 RPG
Coming into this season, Purdue has high expectations thanks to having two potential All-Americans, headlined by breakout candidate Jaden Ivey. Ivey is a 6’4 guard that was rather inefficient last season but came on strong late last season, while he showed himself to be a big shot maker. Ivey is more than ready to take a major step forward this season and emerge as one of the top players in College Basketball and a potential Big Ten Player of the year favorite.
10.EJ Liddell – Junior, Ohio State
2020-21 Stats: 16.2 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.1 BPG
Coming off a heartbreaking loss in the NCAA Tournament, EJ Liddell has returned to Ohio State looking to have high levels of success. Liddell is a 6’7 combo forward that is a good inside threat, solid mid-range shooter, a solid defender, and rebounder. Look for Liddell to have a big season from a scoring perspective, while Ohio State looks to have a high finish in the Big Ten, and get to their first second weekend in the Chris Holtmann era.
11.Collin Gillespie – Senior, Villanova
2020-21 Stats: 14.0 PPG, 4.6 APG, 3.6 RPG
Coming off a season-ending injury, Collin Gillespie decided to use his additional year of eligibility in hopes to help bookend his Villanova career with a National Championship. Gillespie is a great lead guard that sets up his teammates at a high level, while he can score, and he is a good shooter. Look for him to be the number one option for a Villanova team that should once again win the Big East and contend for another NCAA Tournament title.
12.Julian Champagnie – Junior, St. John’s
2020-21 Stats: 19.8 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 1.4 SPG
After a solid season last year, the Red Storm are ready to take a big step forward and the main piece for that will be Julian Champagnie. Champagnie is a 6’8 forward that is a perfect modern-day 4 man, he’s a good shooter, pure scorer, and good defender. Champagnie will have a good chance to collect some individual awards himself, while he should lead Saint John’s back to the NCAA Tournament.
13.Marcus Sasser – Junior, Houston
2020-21 Stats: 13.7 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 2.2 APG
Coming off Houston’s first Final Four in the Kelvin Sampson era, the Cougars will look to build upon that success and for that to be the case, Marcus Sasser needs to take a step forward. Sasser is a good shot-maker, offensive creator and defender, who made critical shots for the Cougars all year long. With a lot of guard pieces from last year’s team now out of the program, this becomes Sasser’s team and the Cougars will go only as far as he will carry them.
14.Ochai Agbaji – Senior, Kansas
2020-21 Stats: 14.2 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.9 APG
Coming into this season, the Kansas Jayhawks have National Championship expectations, but to succeed in winning a Championship, Ochai Agbaji needs to have a big season in year four at Kansas. Agbaji is a 6’5 guard that is a good all-around player, he’s a good scorer, shooter, and defender, although he’s not elite at any one skill set. Look for Agbaji to be a little more aggressive and develop his jumper a little bit this season while being the best overall player for a loaded Kansas team.
15.Marcus Carr – Senior, Texas
2020-21 Stats: 19.4 PPG, 4.9 APG, 4.0 RPG
Texas is officially back. The Longhorns have added Chris Beard and with that also the best transfer class, and potentially the best transfer in Marcus Carr. Carr is a 6’2 guard that is a great scorer and passer, while he’s a good shooter and overall is just good at making things happen. Carr’s addition makes the Longhorns one of the top teams in the sport, while he has a chance to lead Texas to their first National Championship.
16.Trevion Williams – Senior, Purdue
2020-21 Stats: 15.5 PPG, 9.1 RPG, 2.3 APG
Purdue comes into this season with the potential to win the Big Ten Championship and make a National Championship run, and Trevion Williams is the biggest piece inside for this team. Williams is a bulky center that scores efficiently from the interior and is an elite rebounder. Look for him to continue to be a tough physical player, while he could try to extend his range a little bit to help his NBA stock.
17.Grant Sherfield – Junior, Nevada
2020-21 Stats: 18.6 PPG, 6.1 APG, 3.7 RPG
Grant Sherfield didn’t win the Mountain West Conference Player of the year, but he was probably the best player in the conference last season. Sherfield is a 6’2 guard that is an elite scorer, passer, and shooter, making him a dynamic player to have on the roster. Look for Sherfield to once again have a big season while leading Nevada to their first NCAA Tournament in the Steve Alford era.
18.Jabari Smith – Freshman, Auburn
After a one-year absence from the NCAA Tournament, Auburn is set to have a big season thanks to the addition of Top-5 freshman Jabari Smith. Smith is a 6’10 modern-day four-man, he projects as a good shooter, defender, and scorer, which will all translate nicely to an Auburn team that has talent around. Look for Smith to lead Auburn in scoring, as he hopes to lead them back to a high finish in the SEC and maybe an SEC title.
19.David McCormack – Senior, Kansas
2020-21 Stats: 13.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.1 APG
With expectations of becoming the next Udoka Azubuike, David McCormack struggled early last season but he really improved throughout the season and became an anchor inside. McCormack is a 6’10 big man that is a good interior scorer, with a good jump shot, and good rebounding ability, making him a solid overall piece. McCormack will look to build off his late-season success while helping the Jayhawks compete for a National Championship.
20.Caleb Love – Sophomore, North Carolina
2020-21 Stats: 10.5 PPG, 3.6 APG, 2.6 RPG
A new era of North Carolina basketball begins this season as Hubert Davis takes over and this season he has a good team that is expected to be led by Caleb Love. Love had an up and down freshman season but was good late in the season, his ability to create shots off the dribble makes him a major candidate for a breakout season. I expect him to take a major step forward this season, leading North Carolina to a high finish in the ACC, while the Tar Heels have Final Four hopes.
21.Devo Davis – Sophomore, Arkansas
2020-21 Stats: 8.5 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2.1 APG
Looking just strictly at the stats, Devo Davis might not look like an All-American talent but he was great late in the season and was a key piece as Arkansas made the Elite Eight a season ago. Davis is a quick, athletic guard that has an elite burst of speed, and showed himself to be a potential point guard of the future. Look for Davis to be the go-to guy for an Arkansas team that should be in contention to make another deep NCAA Tournament run.
22.Buddy Boeheim – Senior, Syracuse
2020-21 Stats: 17.8 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 2.6 APG
Buddy Buckets is returning to Syracuse for what could be his last season. Boeheim is a 6’6 wing, that is a good shot-creator, shot-maker, and overall shooter, while his team will run their offense through Boeheim. If he can make shots at a rate similar to last season, he should help them be in the NCAA Tournament field once again, although it probably comes with the Orange being on the bubble in the process.
23.Tyson Etienne – Junior, Wichita State
2020-21 Stats: 16.3 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.5 APG
A rollercoaster season ended with Tyson Etienne winning Co-Conference Player of the year, while he was key in leading Isaac Brown’s Shockers to the NCAA Tournament. Etienne is a 6’2 guard that plays best off the ball and is a really good overall scorer, while his shooting ability makes him a hard player to defend. Look for him to continue to put up big numbers for a Wichita State team that will likely end up on the bubble this season.
24.Patrick Baldwin Jr. – Freshman, Milwaukee
A historical commitment could lead to a historical season for Milwaukee this season as Patrick Baldwin Jr. has decided to play for his Dad at Milwaukee. Baldwin is a 6’8 wing that is a great prospect as he’s very athletic, a good ball-handler, and is a good shooter. Look for him to have a big season offensively while leading Milwaukee to a potential Horizon League Championship.
25.Alex Barcello – Senior, BYU
2020-21 Stats: 16.1 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 4.3 APG
BYU has emerged as the consistent top non-Gonzaga WCC team heading into next season thanks to the return of Alex Barcello. Barcello is a 6’2 guard that is a really good point guard, he’s a good passer and has proven himself to be one of the top three-point shooters in College Basketball. Barcello will likely just pick up doing what he did last season while in the process he will lead BYU back to the NCAA Tournament.
26.Kennedy Chandler – Freshman, Tennessee
Tennessee continues to bring in talented freshmen but Kennedy Chandler might be the best of their latest trend of recruits. Chandler is a 6’1 guard that is highly regarded as an elite passer, with a high basketball IQ and athleticism that helps him score with ease. Look for Rick Barnes to put the ball in his hands from day one, and he should have a big season while leading Tennessee back to the NCAA Tournament.
27.Jaden Shackelford – Junior, Alabama
2020-21 Stats: 14.0 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2.0 APG
Coming off an SEC regular and Tournament Championship, the Crimson Tide is changing their expectations heading into next season. Shackelford is a good overall player, he’s a good shooter, scorer, and defender, who will look to develop his skill set next season. Expect him to continue to be the leading scorer for Alabama as he looks to lead the Tide to back-to-back SEC titles.
28.Kellan Grady – Senior, Kentucky
2020-21 Stats: 17.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 2.4 APG
A brand new philosophy of recruiting has taken over Kentucky, as John Calipari has moved his focus to the transfer portal, most notably by adding Kellan Grady. Grady is a 6’5 wing that is a good shooter, scorer, and defender, he projects as a perfect 3-and-D player for the Wildcats. While Grady is probably not an All-American level player, expect him to lead this loaded Kentucky team in scoring, while he could be key in helping John Calipari to win his second National Championship.
29.Terrence Shannon Jr. – Junior, Texas Tech
2020-21 Stats: 15.2 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 1.3 BPG
The Mark Adams era begins with a team that has some lofty expectations thanks to the return of Terrence Shannon Jr, a wing that has NBA upside. Shannon is a 6’6 wing that is a good shooter, scorer defender, and he can make tough shots. Shannon has had to be a secondary player over the past couple of seasons but he should now be the go-to option, he also should have an impressive season for a good Texas Tech team.
30.Keve Aluma – Senior, Virginia Tech
2020-21 Stats: 15.2 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 1.3 BPG
Heading into this season, Virginia Tech has some high expectations thanks in part to the return of Keve Aluma. Aluma is a 6’9 big man that is a really good interior scorer, rebounder and showed an ability to step out and shoot it from three. Look for him to continue to be the go-to piece for the Hokies, as they look to be back in the NCAA Tournament this season.
31.Jaime Jaquez Jr. – Junior, UCLA
2020-21 Stats: 12.3 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.7 APG
While Johnny Juzang was the star of the NCAA Tournament, Jaime Jaquez’s play was also key in UCLA making their run to the Final Four. Jaquez is a 6’6 guard that is a good shooter, scorer and has the ability to be a big scorer for a Bruins team that has National Championship expectations. For the Bruins to reach those expectations, Jaquez will need to continue to be a great secondary option, while becoming a better defender as well.
32.Matthew Mayer – Senior, Baylor
2020-21 Stats: 8.1 PPG, 3.1 RPG, 1.2 SPG
When looking at breakout candidates for this upcoming season, Matthew Mayer should be near the top of the list as he moves into a new role this season. Mayer is a 6’9 unicorn forward that has good ball skills, and an elite ability to get buckets. With four starters gone, look for him to be the go-to scorer for Baylor this season, as he will look to lead the Bears to back-to-back National Championships.
33.Jahvon Quinerly – Junior, Alabama
2020-21 Stats: 12.9 PPG, 3.2 APG, 2.2 RPG
Coming off an SEC Championship season, Alabama is looking to build off that success, but to have a big season this year, Jahvon Quinerly needs to take a major step forward. Quinerly is a 6’1 guard that excels in the open court, as he is a good passer, shooter, and just overall scorer. Look for Quinerly to excel in this season being the lead guard while Alabama should be in prime position to repeat as SEC Champions.
34.Caleb Houstan – Freshman, Michigan
Michigan has the #1 ranked recruiting class going into this season and the main piece for that is Caleb Houstan, who is an elite scorer. Houstan is well-regarded as a modern-day wing because of his size, length, shooting ability, and defensive upside. Houstan will come in and likely contribute in similar ways to how Franz Wagner and Isaiah Livers did a season ago, while he could help Juwan Howard make his first Final Four.
35.Mike Miles, Sophomore, TCU
2020-21 Stats: 13.6 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 3.1 APG
While TCU hasn’t had the best string of recent success, they will have one of the best guards in the Big 12 next season in Mike Miles. Miles is a 6’2 lead guard that is a good scorer, shooter, and passer that showed flashes of brilliance this past season. Look for Miles to take a major step forward being the go-to option on a TCU team that has a good chance to make the NCAA Tournament.
36.Kenric Davis – Senior, SMU
2020-21 Stats: 19.0 PPG, 7.6 APG, 1.6 SPG
After transferring from TCU, Kendric Davis has become one of the best players in the AAC and a potential All-American candidate heading into this season. Davis is a 5’11 guard that does it all for SMU, as he’s a good scorer, elite passer, good shooter, and great at forcing turnovers. Look for Davis to continue to play at a super-elite level for SMU, while if he can lead this team to the NCAA Tournament, he could make an All-American team.
37.Justin Moore – Junior, Villanova
2020-21 Stats: 12.9 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 3.0 APG
Villanova continues to dominate the Big East and while last season wasn’t capped off with a National Championship, a good rotation with Justin Moore back will be set to win the league again. Moore is a good overall guard, he’s a good shooter, scorer, and defender but not elite at any one thing. Look for him to up his season averages once again while he should be a pivotal player on a Villanova team that could be the last team standing in March.
38.Osun Osunniyi – Senior, St. Bonaventure
2020-21 Stats 10.7 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 2.9 BPG
Saint Bonaventure comes into this season as maybe the best non-Gonzaga mid-major team, and a big reason for that is Osun Osunniyi, who is the anchor to the Bonnies’ success. Osunniyi isn’t a go-to scorer but he can score inside when given the rock, while he is the anchor defensively because of his physical presence inside, shot-blocking, and rebounding abilities. Look for him to continue to be the main option inside for this team, while the Bonnies look to have a historical season in the process.
39.TyTy Washington – Freshman, Kentucky
TyTy Washington appears to be the missing piece for this Kentucky team, as he’s a late stock rising recruit with major upside. Washington is a 6’3 guard that is capable of running the point, playing off the ball, while he looks to be a really good overall scorer and shooter. Look for his skill set to fit perfectly for this Kentucky team that should contend for a National Championship.
40.JD Davison – Freshman, Alabama
The Crimson Tide backcourt has a dynamic duo in Jahvon Quinerly and Five-Star Freshman JD Davison. Davison is a freak athlete point guard that has a great finishing ability, while he’s a capable shooter as well. Look for him to come in and make a difference as a starter while helping the Tide get back into SEC Championship contention.
41.Scotty Pippen Jr – Junior, Vanderbilt
2020-21 Stats: 20.8 PPG, 4.9 APG, 2.9 RPG
While the Jerry Stackhouse era has been less than stellar, Scotty Pippen Jr looks to be the player to get the program back on track. Pippen is a 6’3 lead guard that is an excellent scorer, shooter, and passer while having a high usage rate. Look for Pippen to maybe take a slight step back scoring-wise but it could be in the process of leading Vanderbilt to more wins.
42.Nijel Pack – Sophomore, Kansas State
2020-21 Stats: 12.7 PPG, 3.8 APG, 3.7 RPG
While Kansas State struggled last season, Nijel Pack really emerged as a clear #1 option late in the season for the Wildcats as they improved throughout the season. Pack is a 6’0 do-it-all point guard, he’s a great scorer, shooter, and passer, who should take a major step forward next season. Look for Pack to have a big season while helping the Wildcats be in the NCAA Tournament conversation.
43.Landers Nolley – Junior, Memphis
2020-21 Stats: 13.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 1.1 SPG
Memphis comes into this season boasting a really good roster, while Landers Nolley has emerged as the go-to option for the Tigers. Nolley is a 6’7 wing that is a good scorer, shooter, and defender, making him a good overall player and a good team leader. Look for Nolley to continue to be a go-to scorer, as the Tigers look to be a Top-25 team next season.
44.Peyton Watson – Freshman, UCLA
Coming off a Final Four, the Bruins program is on the rise in a major way, so adding the best recruit in the Mick Cronin era could help complete the Bruins path to a National Championship. Watson is a 6’8 forward that has NBA size, which pairs nicely with his defensive ability, athleticism, and scoring potential. Watson may not provide the scoring right away that you would expect out of a Top-10 recruit, but he is someone that doesn’t need to score to be helpful, and for a UCLA team that struggled at times defensively, he could be the perfect fit for this roster.
45.Remy Martin – Senior, Kansas
2020-21 Stats: 19.1 PPG, 3.7 APG, 2.8 RPG
After being a preseason First-Team All-American last year, Arizona State struggled, and the narrative quickly garnered around him being a good stats, bad team player, with him now heading to Kansas, those narratives will be challenged. Martin is a 6’0 lead guard that is a dynamic scorer, a solid facilitator, and has all the traits needed to be a good lead guard. The question is now whether or not he will be willing to do what it takes to win. Expect him to take time to adjust to a new role where he will be the third or fourth option, while he has a good chance to be the missing piece to a Championship-level roster.
46.Mark Williams – Sophomore, Duke
2020-21 Stats: 7.1 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 1.4 BPG
Duke had a down season but a late bright spot was the emergence of Mark Williams, who dominated the ACC Tournament before their season ended. Williams is a 7’0 big man that is an efficient scorer inside, a good rebounder, and a shot-blocker. Williams will continue to develop nicely this season for a Duke team that will look to send Coach K out with a very successful season.
47.Courtney Ramey – Senior, Texas
2020-21 Stats: 12.2 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 3.9 APG
Courtney Ramey has been one of the more solid guards in the Big 12 and one of the more competitive players in the league, making his return to Texas a big first step for Chris Beard. Ramey is a 6’3 guard that can play on and off the ball, he’s a good shooter and a tough defender. With a deep roster, Ramey will have to be the team leader for the Longhorns as they look to be a National Championship contender.
48.Jabari Walker – Sophomore, Colorado
2020-21 Stats: 7.6 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 0.5 APG
After a great season, Colorado will go into a rebuilding year but with Jabari Walker, the Buffaloes have a clear top option heading into next season. Walker is a 6’8 forward, who is an elite shooter and really emerged late in the season as a bucket-getter. Look for him to become the clear #1 option for a Colorado team that should be in contention to make the NCAA Tournament once again.
49.Jermaine Samuels – Senior, Villanova
2020-21 Stats: 12.0 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 2.5 APG
Jermaine Samuels has been a really solid piece for Villanova throughout his career but this season he will need to step up thanks to the departure of Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. Samuels is a 6’7 forward that is a switchable defender, a good rebounder, and a solid overall scorer. He will continue to play well at the 4-spot for a Wildcats team but if he can take a big step forward this year, he could unlock more success for Villanova.
50.Isiaih Mosley – Junior, Missouri State
2020-21 Stats: 19.8 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 3.1 APG
One of the top mid-major players in the sport is Isiaih Mosley, who is a gifted scorer that has already and will continue to dominate the Missouri Valley. Mosley is a 6’5 wing that can score from all three levels while he’s a good passer as well. Look for Mosley to continue to be a high-level scorer for a Missouri State team that could win the Missouri Valley and win games in the NCAA Tournament.
51.James Akinjo – Senior, Baylor
2020-21 Stats: 15.6 PPG, 5.4 APG, 2.3 RPG
While this is the third school in his three years, James Akinjo is set to be an important piece for the defending National Champion Baylor Bears. Akinjo is a 6’1 guard that is a high-usage, high assist, guard that can knock down jumpers at a high rate. Look for him to take over at the point and be an important piece for a Baylor team that should contend for a Big 12 title.
52.Ron Harper Jr – Senior, Rutgers
2020-21 Stats: 14.9 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 1.6 APG
After making their first NCAA Tournament of the century, Rutgers has NCAA Tournament expectations thanks to the return of Ron Harper Jr. Harper is a 6’6 wing that has good size and physicality, which matches well with Harper’s scoring and shooting ability, while he was too inconsistent a season ago, he was still the number one option for Rutgers. Expect Harper to improve a little bit shooting-wise while avoiding a mid-season slump, as he hopes to lead Rutgers back to the Big Dance.
53.Armando Bacot – Junior, North Carolina
2020-21 Stats: 12.1 PPG, 7.8 RPG, 0.7 APG
As the leading scorer and the lone remaining big from the quartet of bigs from a season ago, Armando Bacot comes in looking to continue to dominate inside. Bacot is 6’10 and is a really good scorer on the interior, a decent defender, and a physical force inside. Look for him to be the clear go-to option inside for a North Carolina team that will look to win the ACC in Hubert Davis’ first season.
54.Will Richardson – Senior, Oregon
2020-21 Stats: 11.3 PPG, 3.9 APG, 3.4 RPG
Will Richardson is coming off an injury-riddled season where he missed 12 games but was able to return late in the season. Richardson is a 6’5 guard that can play both on and off the ball, he’s a good shooter, passer, and defender while having a nice mix of experience. Look for Richardson to have a solid season for an Oregon team that will look to contend for both a Pac-12 and National Championship.
55.Avery Anderson – Junior, Oklahoma State
2020-21 Stats: 12.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 2.0 APG
While Cade Cunningham is off to the NBA, this Oklahoma State team should come into this season with NCAA Tournament expectations once again and a large reason for that is the return of Avery Anderson. Anderson is a 6’2 guard that is a good overall player because he can defend, score, and shoot the ball at an efficient rate, while he showed when Cade Cunningham was out, the ability to be a true go-to option. Now that Anderson is the #1 option, expect him to step in and be the team leader on an Oklahoma State team that should be pretty good once again.
56.Kendall Brown – Freshman, Baylor
With four starters gone, Baylor needed to add a great recruiting class, and they did, most notably by adding Kendall Brown. Brown is a 6’8 wing that is extremely athletic, quick, a good finisher, and although not a true shooter yet, he does have the ability to knock down shots. Brown will look to use his skill sets to produce at a solid level for a Baylor team that will be once again very good.
57.Iverson Molinar – Junior, Mississippi State
2020-21 Stats: 16.7 PPG, 2.3 APG, 3.2 RPG
After some transfer additions, Ben Howland has his Bulldog team in contention to make the NCAA Tournament, but the key piece for this team is Iverson Molinar. Molinar is a 6’3 guard that can play both on and off the ball, while he’s a good scorer, shooter, and defender. Look for him to be the go-to option for this Mississippi State team and if he can step up a little bit from a year ago, Mississippi State should be back in the NCAA Tournament.
58.Isaiah Mobley – Junior, USC
2020-21 Stats: 9.9 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 1.6 APG
Coming off a season where USC went to the Elite Eight, and Isaiah Mobley’s brother Evan swept the Pac-12 awards, the belief is at an all-time high in Andy Enfield’s program while this year will be a rebuilding year, that just gives room for Isaiah Mobley to step up. Mobley is a 6’10 forward that is a good modern-day big because of his size, athleticism, and ability to space the floor and score efficiently. Mobley will be asked to take a major step forward this season and in the process, he will be expected to lead USC back to the NCAA Tournament.
59.Trent Frazier – Senior, Illinois
2020-21 Stats: 10.2 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 2.7 APG
After a historical season, Illinois will hope to contend for a Big Ten title, and for that to happen, Trent Frazier will need to take a step forward. Frazier is a 6’2 guard that is a good overall player, he can run the point, score, and shoot at a decent rate. Look for him to re-emerge as the go-to option at the guard spot for Illinois as he looks to help them retain their positioning near the top of the Big Ten.
60.AJ Griffin – Freshman, Duke
While Paolo Banchero is the headline freshman for Duke, AJ Griffin comes in with some major hype as well. Griffin is a 6’7 wing that is a fantastic athlete, a good scorer, and someone that projects as a switchable defender. The swing skill will be shooting for Griffin but if he can knock down open shots, he will be a major piece on what should be a great Duke team.
61.Andrew Nembhard – Senior, Gonzaga
2020-21 Stats: 9.4 PPG, 4.4 APG, 2.4 RPG
For Gonzaga to achieve their ultimate goal of winning a National Championship, Andrew Nembhard will have to take a major step forward being the option at the point. Nembhard is a 6’5 guard that is a great passer, capable shooter/ scorer, and good defender. There is an overwhelming amount of talent on the court for Gonzaga but that level of talent relies on Nembhard being the guy who puts his teammates in place, at the end of the day, his play will decide exactly how far Gonzaga will go.
62.Antoine Davis – Senior, Detroit
2020-21 Stats: 24.0 PPG, 4.8 APG, 2.9 RPG
In a deep Horizon League, Antoine Davis is the best returning player and he is a likely candidate to lead College Basketball in scoring. Davis is a 6’1 guard that is an outstanding scorer, solid shooter, and capable defender that has been the clear go-to option for years at Detroit. Davis will have to continue to be great for Detroit to continue to be in contention for a regular-season Championship, and we know he’s more than capable of single-handedly sending Detroit to the NCAA Tournament.
63.Mike DeVoe – Junior, Georgia Tech
2020-21 Stats: 15.0 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 3.3 APG
The defending ACC Tournament Champion Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets enter into this season looking to continue last season’s success. DeVoe will be the clear leader of the team, the 6’5 guard has been good as a 3-and-D piece, thanks to his defensive prowess and shooting ability but he hasn’t yet taken on the ability to be the go-to guy. Look for DeVoe to make a jump in scoring, as he hopes to help get Georgia Tech back to the NCAA Tournament.
64.Kenneth Lofton Jr. – Sophomore, Louisiana Tech
2020-21 Stats: 12.1 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 1.5 APG
In a Conference USA that is losing some of its best stars, it turns to Kenneth Lofton Jr to take the throne as the best player in the league. Lofton Jr is a 6’7 super bulky big man that dominated the U19 games because of his physicality, interior scoring, and overall toughness. Look for that to continue and be on full display as Lofton looks to lead Louisiana Tech to a Conference USA title.
65.Chris Lykes – Senior, Arkansas
2019-20 Stats: 15.4 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 2.4 APG
After only playing two games a year ago, Chris Lykes has transferred to Arkansas looking to have team success he’s not seen as a player. Lykes is a great offensive player, he’s a good shooter, scorer, and can be a good assist man when needed, although his size does make him somewhat of a liability defensively. Look for Lykes to take a slight step back from a usage perspective but he will be important in helping Arkansas compete for an SEC title.
66.Quincy Guerrier – Junior, Oregon
2020-21 Stats: 13.7 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 1.1 BPG
After being a productive piece for Syracuse last season, Quincy Guerrier heads to Oregon with a chance to fit into a perfect role as the four-man. Guerrier is a 6’7 forward with good defensive skills, mixed with good scoring and shooting capabilities. Guerrier will fit perfectly into a role at the four spot which has had much success at Oregon, giving him a chance to be a key piece on a very good Oregon team.
67.Marcus Bagley – Sophomore, Arizona State
2020-21 Stats: 10.8 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 1.2 APG
Coming off a horrific season, Arizona State is looking to get back to the NCAA Tournament and a big reason for that is the surprise return of Marcus Bagley. Bagley is a 6’8 wing that is a very good modern-day four-man, he’s a solid shooter, good defender, and rebounder, who should take a major step forward this year. Look for Bagley to emerge as Arizona State’s go-to option, while helping them take a step forward from a season ago.
68.David Roddy – Junior, Colorado State
2020-21 Stats: 15.9 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 2.4 APG
In a Mountain West that becomes somewhat wide open, a David Roddy-led Colorado State team looks like the favorite to win the league this season. Roddy is an undersized 6’5 big man that is a really good scorer on the block, solid defender, and elite rebounder, making him a perfect four-man. Look for Roddy to continue to dominate inside, while he could increase his value if he adds a three-point shot.
69.Javonte Perkins – Senior, Saint Louis
2020-21 Stats: 17.1 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 1.8 APG
While this past year might well be looked back on as a major missed opportunity for the Billikens, Saint Louis still has a good enough team to make the NCAA Tournament thanks to the return of Javonte Perkins. Perkins is a 6’6 guard that is a really good overall scorer, an improved shooter and a good defender, while he is sometimes inefficient, he produces for Saint Louis. Perkins will now be forced to carry the load offensively, which is probably better for him, look for Perkins to see an increase in production while keeping Saint Louis in the hunt for the NCAA Tournament.
70.Oscar Tshiebwe – Junior, Kentucky
2019-20 Stats: 11.2 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 1.0 BPG
After getting off to a poor start a season ago, Oscar Tshiebwe decided to transfer to Kentucky and try to break in and play a major role at Kentucky. Tshiebwe is a 6’9 big man that is a good physical presence inside, he’s a good inside scorer, defender, and an elite rebounder, which is a skill set that can fit in well at Kentucky. Look for him to be the main inside piece for a Kentucky team that will look to compete for a National Championship.
71.Nate Watson – Senior, Providence
2020-21 Stats: 16.9 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.0 BPG
Coming off a missed NCAA Tournament, the Friars are stuck in neutral but with Nate Watson, who has been a long-time reliable big, the Friars will still be competitive. Watson is a 6’10 big man who is a good post scorer, rebounder, and defender, making him a very good big man. Watson will have a similar impact as a season ago, the question is whether or not the rest of the pieces develop well around him to send Providence to the Big Dance.
72.Caleb Mills – Sophomore, Florida State
2019-20 Stats: 13.2 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.1 APG
After sitting out for most of last season, Caleb Mills looks to become the go-to scorer for a Florida State team that is looking to win the ACC once again. Mills is a 6’3 shooting guard that is a good shooter, scorer, and tough defender, all of these skills he used to have a successful freshman season. With a new team, he will likely be asked to still be one of the main scoring options for a Florida State team that needs scorers.
73.Max Christie – Freshman, Michigan State
Coming off a year where Michigan State lost in the first four, the Spartans seem to be going into a rebuilding year with freshman Max Christie likely being asked to be the go-to guy for Michigan State. Christie is a 6’6 guard that already has developed a nice well-rounded offensive game, he’s a good shooter, a good scorer off the dribble, and is somewhat of a matchup problem because of his length. Look for the freshman to be asked to do a lot in year one, but he should be good enough to get Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament.
74.Jacob Gilyard – Senior, Richmond
2020-21 Stats: 12.3 PPG, 5.0 APG, 3.6 SPG
While Richmond did not live up to expectations a season ago, it might not be time to give up on the Spiders, and a large piece of that comes because of Jacob Gilyard’s return. Gilyard is a 5’9 guard that does whatever it takes to win, he’s a capable shooter/ scorer, but excels at the point guard spot, making great decisions with the ball, while he’s one of the top defenders in College Basketball. Gilyard will continue to play at this high level, while in a year where Richmond will hope to have good luck with injuries, the Spiders could go dancing.
75.Jacob Young – Senior, Oregon
2020-21 Stats: 14.1 PPG, 3.4 APG, 1.9 SPG
After leading Rutgers to its first NCAA Tournament of this century, Jacob Young heads West looking for an opportunity to lead Oregon to a National Championship. Young is a 6’2 strong guard, he’s a ball-hawk defensively, while he’s a good passer and driver on the offensive side of the ball, while his competitiveness cannot be overstated. Look for Young to continue to play with that underdog mentality while he should take the role of being the lead guard for Oregon.
76.Myreon Jones – Senior, Florida
2020-21 Stats: 15.3 PPG, 2.0 APG, 2.7 RPG
With a large roster overhaul, Florida has aimed at the transfer portal to bring them into this season and the main piece is Myreon Jones. Jones is a 6’3 guard that is a good offensive playmaker to have and is an elite shooter from three, which has been on display over the past two seasons. Look for him to become the top option for a Florida team that should return to the NCAA Tournament once again.
77.Azuolas Tubelis – Sophomore, Arizona
2020-21 Stats: 12.2 PPG, 7.1 RPG, 1.2 APG
A new era of Tommy Lloyd leading Arizona starts with a team that should be in contention to make the NCAA Tournament thanks to a good core of players, headlined by modern-day big Azuolas Tubelis. Tubelis is a 6’11 forward that can step out and shoot threes, he can score in the post, plus he’s a good rebounder. Look for Tubelis to be a matchup nightmare for teams as his play should get the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament.
78.Chuck Harris – Sophomore, Butler
2020-21 Stats: 12.9 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 2.3 APG
After a tough season in which injuries, shutdowns, and poor performance were on full display, Butler comes into this year with high expectations and a big reason for those expectations is the likely breakout of Chuck Harris. Harris is a 6’3 guard, who will primarily play off the ball, he’s a good shooter, scorer, and overall playmaker, who played well late last season. Look for Harris to be the clear go-to option for a Butler team that has a good chance to make the NCAA Tournament.
79.Johni Broome – Sophomore, Morehead State
2020-21 Stats: 13.8 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 1.9 BPG
Coming off their first NCAA Tournament since 2011, Morehead State looks to win back-to-back OVC titles and for that to be the case, Johni Broome needs to continue to dominate inside. Broome is a 6’11 big man that is very mobile and athletic, he’s a great shot-blocker, rebounder, and efficient scorer, making him a perfect modern-day big. Broome came on late last season and should carry that momentum into next season for Morehead State.
80.Tanner Groves – Senior, Oklahoma
2020-21 Stats: 17.2 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 1.1 BPG
One of the stars of the NCAA Tournament is back for another season but doing so for another team, as Tanner Groves has transferred to Oklahoma. Best known for his looks, Groves is a great big man, he’s a good inside scorer, rebounder, and has a nicely developed outside shot, keeping defenses always on their toes. Groves will come in and be a good replacement for Brady Manek, while he hopes to be the big piece for Oklahoma’s NCAA Tournament chances.
81.Michael Flowers – Senior, Washington State
2020-21 Stats: 21.0 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 3.6 APG
Washington State comes into this season with NCAA Tournament hopes (yes you read that right), and while a good returning core is a big reason for that, the biggest might be because of the addition of transfer Michael Flowers. Flowers is a do-everything 6’1 guard, he’s a fantastic scorer, great shooter, while he’s a solid passer, rebounder, and defender. While he will take a lesser role on Washington State, he still will be asked to be the go-to scorer for this team, while if the team plays to their ceiling, he could be a big reason why the Cougars dance in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
82.Paul Scruggs – Senior, Xavier
2020-21 Stats: 14.0 PPG, 5.7 APG, 4.0 RPG
Coming into this season, Xavier has some high expectations and a large part of that is because of the return of Paul Scruggs. Scruggs is a great playmaker, he’s a solid scorer, decent shooter, good passer, and versatile defender, a true do-it-all guard. Scruggs will continue to be the key piece for Xavier and will be important in getting them back to the NCAA Tournament.
83.Jalen Wilson – Sophomore, Kansas
2020-21 Stats: 11.8 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 2.0 APG
Coming into this season with Championship expectations, the Jayhawks will need the good version of Jalen Wilson to achieve their ultimate goal. Inconsistent last season, Wilson showed major flashes as a great scorer, shooter, and rebounder, which was on full display both early and late last season. With a year under his belt, Wilson should be a better overall player, and if he makes the jump many are projecting, he could be the piece that gets Kansas another National Championship.
84.Dawson Garcia – Sophomore, North Carolina
2020-21 Stats: 13.0 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 0.8 APG
A new era of North Carolina Basketball comes with a new philosophy, as they are looking to transfers like Dawson Garcia to make a difference. Garcia is a 6’11 modern-day big man, while raw as a prospect, he’s a good scorer, shooter and has all the skill sets to play a perfect four-man man for the Tar Heels. Look for him to be an instant impact big man while helping Hubert Davis’ team contend for an ACC title.
85.Matt Bradley – Senior, San Diego State
2020-21 Stats: 18.0 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 1.7 APG
After putting up good stats in his time at California, Matt Bradley is off to San Diego State where he hopes to lead the Aztecs to a third straight Mountain West regular-season title. Bradley is a 6’4 guard that has good size, length, and shooting ability, while he’s a high-level scorer. Look for him to come in and instantly be the best player for an Aztecs team that will look to head back to the NCAA Tournament.
86.DeVante’ Jones – Senior, Michigan
2020-21 Stats: 19.3 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 2.8 APG
After being the best player in the Sun Belt, DeVante’ Jones comes to Michigan looking to play a role for a National Championship contending team. Jones is a 6’1 guard that does it all, he can run the point, play off the ball, while he’s a good shooter, scorer, and a sneaky good rebounder. Jones will likely step into the Mike Smith role offensively, which should be a good fit for both him and a hungry Michigan team as well.
87.Timmy Allen – Senior, Texas
2020-21 Stats: 17.2 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 3.9 APG
Coming off three seasons of being an empty stats player at Utah, Timmy Allen is looking to provide valuable production for a National title contender. Allen is a 6’6 forward that can make shots from everywhere, while he’s probably best scoring in the paint. Look Allen to score a little less but in the process, he will look to add efficiency and do it for a winning team at Texas.
88.Nick Muszynski – Senior, Belmont
2020-21 Stats: 15.1 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 1.6 BPG
Belmont has been one of the premier programs in mid-major basketball, as they have a chance to return to the NCAA Tournament thanks to the return of Nick Muszynski.

While Chet Holmgren is the superstar freshman, Hunter Sallis might be the most important freshman for Gonzaga this year, as his ability to contribute right away will be key in Gonzaga contending for a National Championship. Sallis is a 6’5 combo guard that is a good overall player, he’s a good shooter, a good athlete, and is known for being a really smart basketball player. Look for him to come in and contribute right away, as his versatility at the guard spot will be key for Gonzaga next season.
90.Kevin Obanor – Senior, Texas Tech
2020-21 Stats: 18.7 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 1.1 APG
While Max Abmas was the superstar for Oral Roberts, Kevin Obanor was a key piece in getting Oral Roberts to the Sweet 16, and while Abmas will be back for Oral Roberts, Kevin Obanor will be a key piece for Texas Tech this season. Obanor is an elite pick-and-pop big man, he’s a good three-point shooter, rebounder, and solid interior scorer, who will play minutes at the four. Look for him to be a key piece for the Red Raiders while leading them back to the NCAA Tournament in the first year of the Mark Adams era.
91.Taz Sherman – Senior, West Virginia
2020-21 Stats: 13.4 PPG, 1.8 RPG, 1.4 APG
After losing their two best players, West Virginia looks towards veteran players like Taz Sherman to fill the void and get the Mountaineers back to the NCAA Tournament. Sherman, a former JUCO standout, is a 6’4 guard that is a good scorer and shooter, his presence offensively was key for West Virginia getting a 3 seed a season ago. Sherman will now take on a bigger load offensively and he should be able to keep this team at least on the bubble.
92.Isaiah Wong – Junior, Miami
2020-21 Stats: 17.1 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 2.4 APG
While last season was a mostly injury-riddled, lost cause of a season for Miami, Isaiah Wong proved himself to be a key piece going forward for the Canes. Wong is a 6’3 guard that can play on and off the ball, he’s a solid shooter, a fast player, and a good overall scorer. While Miami probably still isn’t an NCAA Tournament team, Wong’s return will at least make them competitive in the ACC.
93.DeAndre Williams – Senior, Memphis
2020-21 Stats: 11.7 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 3.4 APG
While last season was a rollercoaster, the Tigers won the NIT title and looked like a legitimate Top-25 team late in the season once DeAndre Williams got going. Williams is an extremely skilled big man, he’s a good defender, a mobile big man, and is a solid scoring big. Look for Williams to play a major role for the Tigers at the 5, while he looks to help Memphis get not only to the NCAA Tournament but make a deep run as well.
94.Zach Freemantle – Junior, Xavier
2020-21 Stats: 16.1 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 1.4 APG
After a breakout season a year ago, Zach Freemantle is looking to build on his success while leading Xavier back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in the Travis Steele era. Freemantle is a 6’9, modern-day forward that can pick-and-pop, post up, and score around the rim at an efficient rate, while he’s a good rebounder and defender. With his skill set, whenever Xavier needs a basket, he should be the main option next season while he hopes to help Xavier be the top team behind Villanova.
95.Isaiah Stevens – Junior, Colorado State
2020-21 Stats: 15.3 PPG, 5.4 APG, 4.3 RPG
With a high level of play, comes high expectations, as Colorado State comes into this season as the Mountain West favorite, and the lead guard of that team is Isaiah Stevens.

2020-21 Stats: 12.7 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 1.6 BPG
After being the main option on an NCAA Tournament team, Qudes Wahab is heading to Maryland in an attempt to be the next great Maryland big. Wahab is a 6’11 big man that is a good and efficient interior scorer, high-end rebounder, and good shot-blocker. He was an effective player on Georgetown a year ago and will now go to Maryland where they will look to feed the post while hoping that leads to success for the Terrapins next season.
97.Allen Flanigan – Junior, Auburn
2020-21 Stats: 14.3 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 2.9 APG
Auburn has a good chance to contend for an SEC title and while Jabari Smith is the main piece, guards like Allen Flanigan will ultimately make the difference.

2020-21 Stats: 11.2 PPG, 5.5 APG, 3.3 RPG
Drake was a mid-major darling a season ago, and with the return of nearly everyone, including Roman Penn, the Bulldogs are set for another NCAA Tournament appearance. Penn is a 6’0 point guard that is a great game-manager, he’s an elite passer, good defender, decent scorer, and really sets the tone for the Bulldogs. With Penn coming back, the Bulldogs have their leader and most important player for a team looking to make another NCAA Tournament.
99.Matthew Cleveland – Freshman, Florida State
Florida State has upped its recruiting over the past couple of seasons and with the latest addition in Matthew Cleveland, the Seminoles are looking to have him help make history. Cleveland is a 6’6 wing that is a good scorer and shooter, while he’s athletic, projecting as a good two-way player. Cleveland should be a really good overall player this year, as with most freshmen, he could struggle to start but expect him to flourish later in the season.
100.Andre Curbello – Sophomore, Illinois
2020-21 Stats: 9.1 PPG, 4.2 APG, 4.0 RPG
Coming off an impressive season a year ago, Illinois turns to sophomore Andre Curbello as the new lead option at the point.
