10. Ky Bowman - Boston College
9. Shamorie Ponds - St. John's
8. Rui Hachimura - Gonzaga
7. Markus Howard - Marquette

Amongst Bowman in the rankings include Luke Maye of North Carolina, Ethan Happ of Wisconsin and Kyle Guy of Virginia. Purdue’s Carsen Edwards was the No. 1 player on the list.
Much has been made about Jerome Robinson’s departure, as would be expected after a stalwart leaves a team. Now it is Ky Bowman’s team, and his job to fill in Robinson’s shoes. It’s a tall task, but it appears the growing consensus shows that Bowman is up to the challenge.
