48. Mason Gillis - Duke Blue Devils

2023-24 season stats (at Purdue): 6.5 ppg and 3.9 rpg

The 6’6 combo forward earned Big Ten 6th Man of the Year honors, shooting 47% from deep in limited attempts. He also had seven double-digit scoring games, including 16 against Nebraska. Gillis’ versatility, experience, and defense is a welcomed addition for Blue, likely as a key piece off the bench to balance out the underclassmen on the roster.

47. Lynn Greer - Temple Owls

2023-24 season stats (at St. Joe’s): 10.9 ppg and 3.7 apg

The 6’2 point guard had a slightly less role compared to a year ago but still was a good starting ball-handler for the Hawks. Greer had a 21-point game against Rhode Island, as well as 13 points and 11 assists versus Penn. He’ll replace outgoing guard Hysier Miller to run the offense for Temple, making up a talented new-look backcourt along with another transfer.

46. Aaron Scott - St. John’s Red Storm

2023-24 season stats (at North Texas): 11.0 ppg and 5.6 rpg

Scott is a versatile 6’7 forward who is an underrated defender and capable scorer. His season-high came in the first game of last season, scoring 26 points against Northern Iowa. He’ll be the replacement in the frontcourt for Glenn Taylor and Chris Ledlum (for now) and gives them a needed plus-defender.
