14. Greg Brown Texas
Brown will be entering a veteran-laden Texas team poised to return to the NCAA Tournament. Further, he will bring great athleticism with tremendous length. Next, he is a very good player in transition with his ability to run in the open floor and make plays happen. He must continue to develop as a shooter to become a real force on the offensive end. Additionally, his skill level offensively must continue to develop in order to make his athleticism pay off. The overall versatility he will bring to Texas will be key especially on the defensive end. Lastly, the length and athleticism make him a dangerous defender with the ability to defend the rim. Brown is the next five-star frontcourt player to have high expectations at Texas.

16. Emmitt Williams LSU
Williams is very athletic and brings really good energy. Next, he is really good in ball screen situations diving to the rim hard and finishing very strong. Furthermore, he shot the ball very effectively around the basket and is great in the second chance opportunities. He shot the ball very well from deep in pick and pop situations and could be dependable from deep. Williams could improve his overall skill with the basketball and his face-up game to be even more effective, as well as, his overall post-up game with his back to the basket too. Now defensively, Williams brings good effort and athleticism with the ability to protect the rim. He will struggle to guard on the perimeter and staying in front of guards and wings. Williams will bring great effort for LSU and be a dynamic five-man for LSU next season looking to improve on both ends.
17. Marcus Santos-Silva Texas Tech
Santos-Silva will fill a major void on the interior for Texas Tech. Furthermore, he will be very productive on the offensive and defensive glass, as well as being a go-to option inside for easy scoring opportunities around the basket. He will bring skill and consistency to the Texas Tech frontcourt. The biggest contribution will be on the offensive end. As for defensively, he must be more solid on that end to be a rim protected for Texas Tech. Santos-Silva will be a major part of Texas Tech’s success this season.
