The NBA Draft withdrawal deadline has come and gone making the college basketball landscape a lot clearer.
With roster’s starting to get finalized, Andy Katz updated his Power 36 rankings for the upcoming season.
The UCLA Bruins came in at No. 1 overall after former Wildcat Johnny Juzang decided to return making them a Final Four favorite.
Not surprisingly, the Kentucky Wildcats were the first SEC team on the list as they came in at No. 6 overall.
Katz added, “John Calipari loaded up with stud transfers at nearly every position.”
As Kentucky’s non-conference schedule continues to get filled out, the fans are going to be seeing the Cats face off with several top teams this season.
The entire top 10 according to Andy Katz includes:
1. UCLA Bruins
4. Kansas Jayhawks
6. Kentucky Wildcats
8. Oregon Ducks
9. Michigan Wolverines
10. Baylor Bears
