North Carolina Tar Heels

The Tar Heels have lost one of the best bigs in NCAA Basketball in Armando Bacot, who averaged a double-double in the past two years. Behind him are Jalen Washington and Zayden High, two unproven big man options. With 21 ppg scoring guard RJ Davis back, UNC will be in “must-win” mode next season. Onyenso is a good defensive player to balance out the lineup and make them good on both ends.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights

The Knights had one of the better bigs in Cliff Omoruyi, who entered the portal at the end of the season. They’ve added a few transfers, including former Princeton forward, Zach Martini. They have a loaded backcourt, led by 5-star incoming freshmen, Dylan Harper and Ace Bailey. Rutgers doesn’t have a center but Onyenso would be an outside player who can do his job inside while allowing the freshman to operate on the perimeter.

Seton Hall Pirates

It’s been a rough offseason for the Pirates, recently losing Dre Davis and Kadary Richmond. Still, Coach Shaheen Holloway has become one of the better developers in the country, dating back to the St. Peter’s days. Jaden Bediako was one of the top individual defenders in NCAA Basketball and with him gone, the center position is wide open. From a pure development standpoint, Seton Hall could be a legitimate option.
