Way-too-early projections have Auburn basketball as top 10 team next season


Quote
CBS Sportsí Gary Parrish and FanRag Sportsí Jon Rothstein both have Auburn at No. 4 in their respective rankings. Myron Medcalf of ESPN has Auburn at No. 5 in his way-too-early Top 25, which was posted Monday night after the national title game.

On Monday, The Athletic posted its way-too-early Top 25, and it placed Auburn at No. 7 ó second in the SEC, behind No. 4 Kentucky and ahead of No. 10 Tennessee. The Athleticís Sam Vecenie wrote the projection with the expectation that center Austin Wiley and small forward Mustapha Heron will be back next season.

Out in Las Vegas, the Tigers are inside the top 15 for preseason national championship odds:

At Sporting News this past weekend, Ryan Fagan placed the Tigers at No. 11 in his countdown ó with Kentucky at No. 3 and Tennessee at No. 8.

Personnel for 2018-19 college basketball season will become gradually more clear over the next few weeks. It starts with the official list of the NBA Draft Combine.

Should see a bunch of guys who declared and didnít get invited to the NBA draft combine withdraw from process soon. Especially when they donít get NBA team workouts.

Which college programs have the most at stake at this week's NBA Draft Combine?

Quote
Kentucky: ...Wildcats will have two players ó P.J. Washington and Jarred Vanderbilt ó participate this week in Chicago and a third ó Wenyen Gabriel ó has also entered the NBA Draft without an agent. Calipari has Kentucky set up to have a top-five team regardless if any of these guys return next season, but if one, two, or three come back, then the depth in Lexington could be utterly ridiculous. If none of these three players return to school next season, Calipari will still bring in two 5-star forwards in freshmen Keldon Johnson and E.J. Montgomery to go with sophomore Nick Richards up front. Neither Washington or Vanderbilt is currently projected as a first-round pick while Gabriel was not invited to the NBA Draft Combine.

South Carolina: Will Brian Bowen ever be cleared by the NCAA? Thatís the million dollar question right now in Columbia. Bowenís agent Jason Setchen told FRS Sports last week that the Gamecocks have applied for Bowenís reinstatement with the NCAA after being linked to a pay-for-play deal when he was a Louisville recruit as part of the FBI probe. Nevertheless, heís still a former 5-star recruit that was talented enough to be invited to the NBA Draft Combine without ever stepping on the floor in a college game. Many donít think this kid will ever be fully cleared, but that may never even come into play if he plays well enough in Chicago

Missouri: Thereís more than just one Porter in this NBA Draft. The younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., Jontay Porter shined at times during this past season at Missouri while his older brother was out of the lineup with injury and could find his way into the latter part of the first round. A shot blocker on defense (1.7 blocks) and a capable three-point shooter on offense (36.2 percent), the 6-11 lefty averaged 9.9 points and 6.8 rebounds as a freshman. This is the type of big man thatís flourishing in todayís NBA...

Auburn: Bruce Pearl had four different players ó Austin Wiley, Jared Harper, Bryce Brown, and Mustapha Heron ó all enter the 2018 NBA Draft without an agent, but only Wiley received an invitation to Chicago. The 6-11 big man didnít play a minute last season due to his attachment to the FBI probe, but did shine last summer in Colorado Springs during USA Basketball. Pearl is in a win-win situation; heís already won a share of the SEC regular season title without Wiley and adding him would only enhance the Tigersí chances for 18-19. Auburn will also get back Danjel Purifoy next season, who like Wiley missed all of last year due to the FBI probe.

Way-too-early preseason rankings have been out since before the national championship game between Villanova and Michigan, but there's still much to sort out with the national landscape of the 2018-19 season. We're still about two weeks away from the early-entry deadline, although the NBA draft combine will help sort out some of the guys who should come back. There are dozens of notable players who tested the waters without an agent -- but here are the ones who will help shape the narratives heading into next season.

Quote
PJ Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel, Kentucky:

No coach has been more active this spring on the recruiting trail than John Calipari, landing five-star senior E.J. Montgomery and five-star juniors Ashton Hagans, D.J. Jeffries and Tyrese Maxey. Hagans is expected to reclassify and join the team next season. But the frontcourt is still a major question mark without knowing what these three players are going to do. If all three -- or even two of the three -- return, the Wildcats are fine up front. Nick Richards is also back and Montgomery is ready for an immediate role. Kentucky could also keep its eye out for any late graduate transfers who become available, specifically in the frontcourt. Assuming Hagans reclassifies, the perimeter group is versatile and talented.

Mustapha Heron, Bryce Brown, Austin Wiley and Jared Harper, Auburn:

The Tigers might have the most riding on the early-entry deadline. Will Bruce Pearl have to deal with the ultimate disaster scenario? Probably not. After initially leaning toward hiring an agent, Heron can now go either way -- and he's still the most likely to enter the draft. Wiley was cleared during the conference schedule to play the 2018-19 season, so there's no reason for him to stay in the draft. Harper should come back. Brown had a terrific season, but one more year in college could help. Auburn is involved with several sit-out transfers, and is also looking for a point guard for next season, although that's more for depth given that Harper is the lone point guard on the roster. If all four players return, Auburn will be back in the SEC title hunt.

 Brian Bowen, South Carolina:

Not only could Bowen sign with an agent and keep his name in the draft, he might not ever be cleared to play college basketball after what happened at Louisville. He hasn't been seen by many people since last spring at high school all-star practices and games but was one of the better scorers in the 2017 class. Frank Martin has been busy this spring, landing 2018 prospects T.J. Moss and Alanzo Frink, as well as Georgetown graduate transfer Tre Campbell. South Carolina is also one of the favorites for recently reclassified big man D.J. Burns, who was an ESPN 60 prospect in 2019, and has been involved with former North Carolina guard Jalek Felton.

 Jontay Porter, Missouri:

The Porter-Missouri marriage might not last more than one season. Michael Porter Jr. played only two games for the Tigers, and Jontay might be gone after one season. Jontay showed versatility and skill as a freshman, making 40 3-pointers and also proving himself as a very good shot-blocker and rebounder. Cuonzo Martin could be facing something of a rebuild if Jontay leaves, given Michael is already gone and Kassius Robertson and Jordan Barnett are graduating. Martin has been busy on the transfer market with Mark Smith (Illinois) and Dru Smith (Evansville), but there isn't much left in the way of graduate transfers or available 2018 prospects.

Jalen Hudson, Florida: The Gators already lose Chris Chiozza and Egor Koulechov from last season, and Hudson could take on a much bigger scoring role if he returns. He had huge back-to-back games in November against Gonzaga and Duke, but his streaky shooting led to some inconsistency.
