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

25. North Carolina

This team will look a whole lot different in 2023-24. Six players — including Caleb Love — have entered the transfer portal (the others include Will Shaver, Puff Johnson, Dontrez Styles, Tyler Nickel, Justin McKoy). Pete Nance and Leaky Black have exhausted their respective eligibilities. However, there’s some sense of optimism for the program.

Armando Bacot is returning to school yet again for another year. R.J. Davis will lead the backcourt, and will be flanked by Seth Trimble and Jalen Washington. Incoming freshmen Simeon Wilcher and Zayden High are both much-ballyhooed. Plus, they’ve added four transfers in sharpshooter Paxson Wojick (Brown), Cormac Ryan (Notre Dame), Stanford forward Harrison Ingram and forward Jae’Lyn Withers (Louisville).
