Leonard Hamilton picked a great time to bring in the highest-ranked recruiting class of his Tallahassee reign after losing four of his top-five scorers from last season’s top scoring offense (77.1 ppg.). All three freshmen—Matthew Cleveland, Jalen Warley and John Butler—are capable of contributing right away, as are key transfers Cam’Ron Fletcher and Caleb Mills, the latter of whom proved to be a capable scorer as a freshman at Houston (13.2 ppg) before dealing with ankle injuries last season. Hamilton’s got his trademark versatility, depth and length in the frontcourt (Malik Osborne, Naheem McLeod and Tanor Ngom), plus Anthony Polite and Wyatt Wilkes as shooters on the wing. Hamilton has all the tools to break past the Sweet 16 hurdle he’s failed to clear in the last two tournaments.
