6. Zeke Mayo - Kansas Jayhawks

2023-24 season stats (at South Dakota State): 18.8 ppg, 5.7 rpg, and 3.5 apg

The reigning Summit League of the Year averaged over 18 ppg in the last two years, shooting nearly 40% from deep, Mayo had 10+ points in 33 of 35 games, including a 35-point against North Dakota State in OT. He returns back home to Lawrence and the Jayhawks, set to give them an offensive boost in the backcourt. Mayo can play both on and off the ball, which will be important if Dajuan Harris returns for another year.

5. Milos Uzan - Houston Cougars

2023-24 season stats (at Oklahoma): 9.0 ppg and 4.4 apg

The 6’4 guard has 56 starts in two seasons at Oklahoma, though his scoring production dipped as a sophomore. Uzan still is one of the better passers in the Big 12, including a 13-point and 10-assist outing at TCU. He’ll be the natural replacement for Jamal Shead at point, with Houston essentially bringing back everyone else to try and contend for a Final Four appearance.

4. Chris Youngblood - Alabama Crimson Tide

2023-24 season stats (at South Florida): 15.3 ppg and 2.1 apg

After three strong years at Kennesaw State, Youngblood followed his HC to South Florida, where he became the Co-AAC Player of the Year. He led the team in scoring, shooting 42% from deep and 83% from the line. The 6’4 guard is the latest high-scoring addition for Alabama, who’s losing Aaron Estrada and potentially Mark Sears if he opts to enter the NBA Draft.
