Which stars from the 2022/23 college basketball season are headed to the NBA Draft? Which are headed back to school?
Caleb Love will return to play college basketball for his senior season, but has transferred from North Carolina to play for the Arizona Wildcats, giving them a boost in the early preseason polls.
Love was a premier catalyst for the UNC team that reach the 2022 national championship, despite being an 8-seed.
Markquis Nowell is undersized for a point guard at just 5 '8’’, but had a great NCAA Tournament and recorded 19 assists for Kansas State in their Sweet 16 game against the Michigan State Spartans.
His exceptional performances in the tourney raised some NBA eyebrows, and the 23-year-old has opted to go pro as a result.
Adama Sanogo dominated during the NCAA Tournament and helped lead the UConn Huskies to a national title. Per ESPN, he is the fifth best center and 57th best overall prospect.
Drew Timme will enter the NBA Draft after four solid seasons at Gonzaga. He is still just the 14th ranked power forward and 68th ranked player overall, making him a possible second round pick.
Jalen Wilson had a fantastic season for the Kansas Jayhawks and won Big 12 Player of the Year, off the back of winning the national championship in 2022. He is a potential second round pick, coming in as the ninth best power forward and 42nd best overall prospect.
Grady Dick is entering the draft as one of the better shooting guards available. He is ranked as the third best shooting guard and the 10th best overall prospect, making him a clear first round pick.
Zach Edey will return to play another year at Purdue after winning National Player of the Year in 2022/2023. He averaged 22.3 points per game and 12.9 rebounds per game.
