Florida State Seminoles

One thing Coach Leonard Hamilton loves is his frontcourt depth, as he’ll play everyone at least 5-10 mpg. With Naheem McLeod gone and Jaylan Gainey leaving after next season, the team won’t have a true five-man on the roster. Cameron Corhen and Baba Miller are breakout candidates and could potentially be in the NBA Draft picture if things go well.

It’s hard to envision Miranda starting at FSU next season but he’ll certainly get minutes. And he could easily slide in and start as a redshirt sophomore. Plus, the big man could have some revenge opportunities against his old team NC State if he picked this ACC program.

New head coach Ed Cooley has been slowly building the roster, including a few additions in the frontcourt. Supreme Cook is a good forward from Fairfield, while Ismael Massoud and Dontrez Styles are a pair of combo forwards. They still have Akok Akok and Ryan Mutombo around but neither were impressive last season.

There’s a fair amount of depth in the frontcourt but it’s not too much for Miranda to overcome if he’s legit. But he’ll have to make his own impact because the team has class of 2024 commit, Thomas Sorber, coming in right behind him. There’s some risk but if he trusts Coach Cooley and is willing to stick around for a bit, this could be a good option.
