When it comes to teams navigating the NCAA Basketball transfer portal, there are some top needs they go for. That includes an elite scoring guard, a big man that can defend/rebound at a high level, as well as an elite pure shooter. Koby Brea fits in the last category, coming off leading the nation with 50% shooting from three-point range.

Brea, a 6'6 guard from Washington Heights, New York, has spent the last four seasons at Dayton. He only started 21 games for them and has largely been a 6th Man. But he was an elite one, earning Atlantic 10 6th Man of the Year honors twice, including this past season where he posted a career-high 11.1 ppg and 3.8 rpg. That includes a 21-point game at Saint Louis, making 5/8 from deep.

Brea entered the portal and as expected, all of the top teams were after his shooting services. Now, he's reportedly down to a final list of five teams in the process. Here's a power ranking of which ones are the best potential fit for the former Dayton guard.

5. Kansas Jayhawks

Coach Bill Self has already addressed the holes on the wing and the lack of shooting they had from last season, adding three guard transfers. Zeke Mayo, Riley Kugel, and AJ Storr. Plus, they're rumored to potentially get another 6'5 transfer guard, Alabama's Rylan Griffen.

Could the Jayhawks find a way to add Brea's shooting to be even more formidable next season? Sure. But is there just as good a chance for him to be buried down in the depth chart? Definitely. The other options are just as prestigious and offers much more security in a future role.
