3. Robbie Avila - Indiana State to Saint Louis

2023-24 season stats: 17.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg, and 4.1 apg

The 6’10 big man became one of the top centers in all of NCAA Basketball, leading the Sycamores to 32 wins and a top-10 offensive unit. Among many individual performances from this past season included 21 points and 11 rebounds against UIC and 35 points, eight rebounds, and five assists in a win over Evansville.

2. Oumar Ballo - Arizona to Indiana

2023-24 season stats: 12.9 ppg and 10.1 rpg

The 7’0 center has been one of the best big men in all of NCAA Basketball, averaging a double-double for the top-tier Wildcats. Among his top games include a 22-point and 13-rebound performance against Cal. Ballo may not be as good an offensive player as Kel’el Ware was at Indiana but he’s a better interior defender and should fit well in the Big Ten.

2023-24 season stats: 14.0 ppg and 3.3 apg

Roach, who earned All-ACC honors this past season, will run the Baylor offense now, replacing Rayj Dennis as the lead guard.
