The 2024 NBA Draft has been completed, with Reed Sheppard being the first college player to come off the board. He went from a four-star prospect coming off the bench at Kentucky to being the third pick in the draft to the Houston Rockets.

We're now a year away from the 2025 NBA Draft, with some players, including incoming freshmen, being clear contenders for the top spots. There also are going to be some breakout sophomore and junior candidates to watch as well that can rise up the draft boards. Here's a look at a mock "Big Board" for next draft season, featuring only NCAA Basketball players for the 2024-25 season.

30. Kwame Evans - Oregon Ducks

2023-24 season stats: 7.3 ppg and 4.9 rpg

Despite dealing with injuries in the preseason, Evans had a solid freshman campaign for Oregon, starting 29 games. The 6’9 forward shot 47% from the field and had a pair of 22-point outings in flashes of being a lead scorer. With N’Faly Dante and Jermaine Couisnard gone, look for Evans to take a larger role next season and with an NBA-ready frame, look for him to get some draft consideration.

29. Ugonna Onyenso - Kansas State Wildcats

2023-24 season stats: 3.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 2.8 bpg

Due to a combination of injuries and a logjam at center at Kentucky, Onyenso was limited to under 20 mpg last season. He still managed to show that he can be an elite shot-blocker, including 10 in a game against Ole Miss. Onyenso will be the clear starting center at Kansas State and could put up some huge state but also will be at risk of getting exposed in some of his weaker areas.

28. Isaiah Evans - Duke Blue Devils

2023-24 season stats: N/A

The 6’6 wing is a five-star prospect in the freshman class, ranked in the top 20 overall. He’s one of the best pure shooters joining Duke and likely will start on Day 1. Every year, a wing from Duke gets drafted and there’s a good shot that Evans will continue that streak.
