NBA Draft Early Entry Tracker

Colorado G Cody Williams

Williams is leaving Colorado after his freshman season, where he showed off his two-way ability as a silky smooth scorer and elite defender. While often taking on the team's leading backcourt scorer on one end, Williams averaged 11.9 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists while shooting nearly 60% from the field. Williams is the younger brother of Oklahoma City Thunder starting forward Jalen Williams.

North Carolina G/F Harrison Ingram

Ingram is leaving for the NBA after becoming a key part of the Tar Heels in his lone year at North Carolina, averaging 12.2 points and 8.8 rebounds and helping coach Huebert Davis's squad to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. He previously averaged 10.5 points per game over two seasons at Stanford before transferring to Chapel Hill last offseason.

UConn G Stephon Castle

Castle scored a career-high 21 points in the Huskies' NCAA Tournament semifinal win over Alabama, and put up 15 points in the national championship game victory over Purdue. The 6-foot-6 guard will be just the second UConn player to enter the draft after his freshman year, joining Andre Drummond, who was selected ninth overall by the Detroit Pistons in 2012.

UConn F Alex Karaban

Karaban averaged 13.3 points and 5.1 rebounds this season, helping UConn to its second straight NCAA title. The 6-foot-8 sophomore has been projected as a possible late first- or second-round pick, but will also retain his college eligibility. 

Kentucky G Reed Sheppard

The 6-foot-3 sharpshooting guard is taking his talents to the NBA after one season at Kentucky. Sheppard was named the SEC Freshman of the Year after averaging 12.5 points, 4.5 assists, 4.1 rebounds and shooting 52% from 3-point range. He is projected to go No. 10 overall to the Atlanta Hawks in FOX Sports' Jason McIntyre's 2024 NBA Mock Draft 1.0.

UConn C Donovan Clingan

The 7-foot-2 sophomore center was an instrumental piece in the Huskies' championship run this season and is expected to be in the running for the potential No. 1 overall pick. Clingan averaged 15.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game during the NCAA Tournament.

Duke C Kyle Filipowski

Filipowski made a case for himself to be a lottery pick after the sophomore center led Duke in both scoring and rebounding with 16.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. 

Duke G Jared McCain

In his lone season at Duke, McCain was the Blue Devils' second leading scorer and top 3-point shooter. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 14.3 points per game and shot 41% from downtown. McCain also played a key role in helping Duke make an Elite Eight appearance. 

Marquette G Tyler Kolek

Kolek has chosen to forego his final season of college eligibility after starting 99 games for the Golden Eagles over the past three seasons. The senior guard averaged 15.3 points per game this past season while shooting 38.8% from 3-point range. 

USC G Bronny James

Bronny, the son of NBA superstar LeBron James, averaged 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists for USC this past season. The freshman guard has also made the decision to retain his college eligibility by simultaneously entering the transfer portal.

USC G Isaiah Collier

Collier, who played one season with the Trojans, started 26 games and was second on the team in scoring at 16.3 points per game. He was named to the All-Pac 12 Freshman Team and was an honorable mention on the All-Pac 12 Team. 

Kentucky G Rob Dillingham

Dillingham was named second-team All-SEC and SEC Sixth Man of the Year as a freshman after averaging 15.2 points and 3.2 assists per game.
