05. Tramon Mark (Texas)

2023-24 Season at Arkansas: 16.2 PPG | 4.3 RPG | 1.8 APG | 48 FG% | 36.4 3PT%

After spending three years at Houston, Mark opted to hit the transfer portal looking for an opportunity to take on a bigger scoring role. He landed at Arkansas and immediately became the team's best player. Mark led a high-powered Razorback offense, scoring just over 16 points per game. A double-digit scorer in 25 of 31 games, Mark provided an average-at-best Arkansas team with some offensive stability. His best game of the season was a 35-point outing in a win over Texas A&M. 

Tramon Mark can score anywhere on the floor and in multiple different ways. He’s comfortable driving to the basket and creating his own shot. He shows zero hesitation in taking a pull-up mid-range jump shot or letting a three fly off a catch-and-shoot. Mark also absorbs contact well, getting to the line over five times a game last year, making 80.4 percent. The most impressive thing about Mark’s offensive performance last season was that even though he was taking nearly five more shots per game, his shooting percentages were the highest of his career. 

Mark has been a solid defender at both Houston and Arkansas. This past season he averaged 1.2 steals per game, which is consistent with his numbers at Houston. During his time at Houston, the Cougars never had a defense ranked worse than third in points per game allowed. And with Mark never averaging less than 20 minutes per game, he was a huge part of the defensive success. 

Now Mark is in a much better situation at Texas. The roster is much more balanced and complementary to his style of play. And Mark should continue to be his team's leading scorer, only this time as a Longhorn.
