45. JaKobe Coles - TCU to Grand Canyon

2023-24 season stats: 10.0 ppg and 3.8 rpg

The 6’7 forward had the most playing time of his career, 21 mpg (and 11 starts) for TCU, putting up career-high numbers. Coles shot 42% from deep in limited attempts and had seven games with at least 15 points, including 19 in the Round of 64 loss to Utah State. The veteran forward could’ve stayed at the power conference level but will go to the WAC to Grand Canyon, looking to replace its star, Tyon Grant-Foster.

44. Matt Allocco - Princeton to Notre Dame

2023-24 season stats: 12.7 ppg and 3.3 apg

The 6’4 guard is one of the few members of the rare 50-40-90 shooting club from this past season. Allocco also had a few big scoring outings himself, including 23 points in an early-season win at Duquesne. He’s a capable guard who gives Notre Dame a needed shooting presence and is an underrated ball-handler, taking pressure off of Markus Burton.

43. Viktor Lakhin - Cincinnati to Clemson

2023-24 season stats: 9.2 ppg and 6.0 rpg

The 6’11 forward saw his production drop after other bigs joined the rotation but Lakhin still started 24 games at around 21 mpg. He had seven games with at least 17 points (before his minutes dropped in the second half of the season), including 26 points and 11 rebounds against Eastern Washington. At a minimum, he gives Clemson needed frontcourt depth and if star big PJ Hall leaves, would likely be a starter next season.
