36. Basheer Jahaad - Arizona State Sun Devils

2023-24 season stats (at Ball State): 18.6 ppg and 8.0 rpg

The 6’9 forward had a breakout junior campaign as a full-time starter, leading the Cardinals in both scoring and rebounding. He scored 9+ points in every single game, including a 28-point and 14-rebound performance against Northern Illinois. ASU had next-to-none frontcourt production this past season and has a new roster to work with. Look for Jahaad to have a good shot at being the focal point inside.

35. Alvaro Cardenas - Boise State Broncos

2023-24 season stats (at San Jose State): 13.2 ppg and 5.5 apg

The 6’1 guard was one of the top passers in the Mountain West last season, while also positing career-high scoring numbers. Cardenas shot 39% from deep and had four games with 10 assists, including 18 points and 10 assists against Utah State. He’s expected to slide into the PG spot in the backcourt, replacing Max Rice.

34. Colby Rodgers - Memphis Tigers

2023-24 season stats (at Wichita State): 16.4 ppg and 3.4 rpg

The 6’5 guard led the Shockers in scoring in his lone season with them, shooting 41% from three-point range. Rodgers had 10 games with at least 20 points, including 29 on the road at both UAB and Tulane. In three games against Memphis, he scored 18 ppg, winning the last matchup. That’s his new team now, staying in the AAC. He very well could start now but in the case that David Jones goes pro, Rodgers could be the new go-to option for them.
