Selton Miguel, Maryland

Miguel, who played at Kansas State and most recently at South Florida, averaged 14.7 PPG, 3.2 RPG and 2.2 APG on a revamped and much-improved South Florida Bulls roster under first-year head coach Amir Abdur-Rahim. Miguel, who earned the American Athletic Most Improved Player Award and Sixth Man of the Year Award, according to the Baltimore Sun, fits well with the new-look Terps, who are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 16-17 (7-13) campaign.

With Jamir Young departing, Willard will have Miguel, Belmont transfer JaKobi Gillespie and sophomore guard DeShawn Harris-Smith run the backcourt -- and Miguel might be the most important factor in their new-look backcourt. As an experienced player, Miguel brings a level of versatility that is much needed for the 2024-25 Terps.

Caleb Williams, Minnesota

The Division III high-scoring guard from Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota averaged 20 PPG last season, scoring 41 points in an exhibition against his new team, Minnesota, on top of a 51-point outing against Concordia-Moorhead in late Jan. Because the Gophers lost a hefty amount -- including their starting point guard and floor general Elijah Hawkins to Texas Tech -- Williams will likely be Ben Johnson’s starting point guard come November, but that situation is quite fluid because it only May and Minnesota is strongly in the mix for Charlotte transfer Lu’Cye Patterson.

Questions might surround whether Williams’ game will translate to the Division I level, but rest assured, his offensive skillset -- from tough, pull-up jumpers to finishing through contact to a silky-smooth jumper -- should bode well in Ben Johnson’s system.
