Notable commitments

Zvonimir Ivisic, Arkansas

The first addition to John Calipari’s Razorback roster, Ivisic will follow him from Lexington to Fayetteville. Ivisic only played in 15 games last year after being ruled eligible to play in late January by the NCAA but made an impact in his small sample size, scoring in double figures four times.

Jyare Davis, Syracuse

2023-24 Second Team-All CAA honoree averaged 17.1 and 7.5 RPG last season at Delaware, leading the Fightin’ Blue Hens in scoring. Because Maliq Brown, Justin Taylor and Benny Williams have all departed, Davis will play an immediate impact role for Adrian Autry.

Connor Hickman, Cincinnati

Hickman, who spent the past three years at Bradley, averaged 14.5 PPG and 3.4 RPG on a team that won 23 games under Brian Wardle. With a new role at Cincinnati, Hickman will provide spot-up shooting off of catch-and-shoot

Tony Perkins, Missouri

One of the more underrated guards in the portal, Tony Perkins brings a bit of everything -- something that will provide value for Dennis Gates, who is hoping to move on from their disastrous season this year. Perkins, who averaged 14.0 PPG, 4.4 RPG  and 4.6 APG, is an attack-the-basket, physical guard who is a nifty passer, too.

Malik Dia, Ole Miss

Dia blossomed into a high-impact player at Belmont after spending his freshman year at Vanderbilt, averaging 16.9 PPG and 5.8 RPG in just 23 MPG. According to Bracketologist/Analyst Rocco Miller, Malik Dia finished first nationally in the percentage of possessions used and second in the country in the percentage of shots taken (38.9%).
