3. SF, Aaron Scott 

After appearing in 34 games for the North Texas Mean Green last season, Aaron Scott entered his name in the transfer portal with the hopes of getting to a larger and more prominent basketball school to further his career. He is now on his way to New York, heading to St. Johns. 

Scott brings volume shooting, underrated size, and length to the small forward position, standing at 6-foot-7, and is one of the most durable and consistent players in college basketball. Scott has played 30+ games in each of his last three seasons. 

Last year, he averaged 11.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 1.1 steals. He fills up the stat sheet on both sides of the ball. He shot 41.9% from the field, which could be improved, yet shot 37.0% from the three-point line. He will be a key factor in the St. Johns offense.
