A Look Ahead: 2023-24 College Basketball Preseason Top 25

24. Houston

Kelvin Sampson’s team may take somewhat of a step back next year. Jarace Walker will leave to be a lottery pick. Marcus Sasser and Reggie Chaney are gone, and Tramon Mark transferred to Arkansas.

With that said, Sampson was able to coax elite Baylor transfer L.J. Cryer to join the program. One of the country’s top sharpshooters, Cryer is expected to play a bit more on the ball for the Cougars rather than just being a guy coming off screens. Jamal Shead, Temple transfer Damian Dunn, Terrance Arceneaux, and J’Wan Roberts make up the remainder of what should be a very solid team next season.
