6. Trent Perry - No. 52 prospect

The 6’4 point guard has been one of the biggest risers in the entire 2024 class these past few months. Perry went from outside the top 100 to start the season, to earning a McDonald’s All-American Game spot. He originally committed to USC before Coach Enfield left and doesn’t seem to be staying for the Musselman era.

So far, Perry has been connected to programs such as UCLA, Virginia, Notre Dame, and others. But right now, the Cavaliers are the team to watch, having a recent visit from him. With Reece Beekman going pro and Dante Harris transferring out, UVA doesn’t have a ball-handler on the roster. This is a good opportunity for Perry to come in and be the lead guard on Day 1.

5. Khani Rooths - No. 36 prospect

Rooths is a 6’7 combo forward from Washington D.C. who originally committed to Michigan and HC Juwan Howard. He’s a versatile player on both ends, capable of scoring anywhere on the court, and can defend at a good level. 

In the first go-around, Mississippi State, Virginia Tech, Georgia, Maryland, and Florida State got visits from Rooths. From a roster standpoint, Maryland and FSU make the most sense, while Tech is currently rebuilding. Coming back to Michigan and playing for Dusty May is also an option for the four-star, who seems to be starting all over in his new recruitment.
