G Jalen Blackmon - Stetson

2023-24 Statistics: 35 G, 21.3 PPG, 2.9 RPG, 1.9 APG, 42.8% FG, 3.1 3PM, 38.1% 3PT

Blackmon is a prolific scorer who led Stetson to its first-ever NCAA Tournament this season. He excels with the ball in his hands and is a tough shot-maker. The 6-foot-3 guard fits the exact archetype of player that the Jayhawks need next season — someone who can create his own shot and hit threes at a high clip.

He is one of the better guards remaining in the portal and has received interest from several premier programs. The only issue in the way of him becoming a Jayhawk is that he might want to take on a bigger offensive role than he would receive at Kansas. But if he is willing to take a step back, Blackmon could be the starter alongside Harris next year.
