The good news? So then you *only* sign four top-15 high school players and go get your big man in the transfer market, where you know he's college ready.

Bona’s initial final eight includes favorites UCLA and Kentucky as well as Arizona State, Baylor, Kansas, the NBL, Miami and USC. However, he’s since cut it down to just Kentucky and UCLA.
