Stokes' early entry into the draft went without an official announcement, but it appears as though he will test the NBA waters before making a final decision. He averaged 11.7 points and 4.1 assists per game in his sophomore season, but listed at just six feet tall, the most likely outcome for Stokes is a return to Kansas State for his junior season.

Heron was one of the best freshmen players in the SEC last season, averaging 15.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while shooting an impressive 42.3 percent from three.
