    TCU, WVU and K-State also in their top twenty-five. Highly probable that Ku will win the conference again. But can't see all that youth winning the national title unless the Lawsons are all-conference.

    1. KANSAS JAYHAWKS

    • Who’s gone: Devonte’ Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk, Malik Newman
    • Who do they add: Dedric Lawson, K.J. Lawson, Charlie Moore, Quentin Grimes, Devon Dotson, David McCormack
    • Projected starting lineup: Charlie Moore, Marcus Garrett, Quentin Grimes, Dedric Lawson, Udoka Azubuike*
    Losing Graham is a major, major blow for this program, but they had as much talent sitting out this season as any program in college basketball. Cal transfer Charlie Moore should be able to step in and handle the point guard duties – if that role isn’t taken over by Devon Dotson – while Dedric Lawson and K.J. Lawson will give Bill Self actual power forwards, something he has been yearning for the last two years. There is still going to be some turbulence with this roster. Do they hold onto Udoka Azubuike? Will anyone else get run out of town? But the bottom line is that they are talented, they are old, they are well coached and they have a functional point guard on their roster.

    I definitely think K-State will be a top 25 team next year, but top 10 seems like a bit of a stretch. Time will tell I guess

    Yeah, I definitely don't think they have the ceiling to be a top 10 team.

    They should be top 25 good though.
