F Xavier Amos - Northern Illinois

2023-24 Statistics: 34 G, 13.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 1.2 APG, 1.3 BPG, 49.6% FG, 1.6 3PM, 38.5% 3PT

Amos is a Chicago-based 6-foot-8 forward out of NIU. He can put the ball on the floor well for his size and finishes hard at the rack. While he does most of his scoring at the rim, his offensive game also features an efficient 3-ball that he shot from the top of the key a lot this season.

He could fill a role similar to that of Johnny Furphy as a wing/big guard in the starting lineup. He played at lower-level mid-major competition like the first two players on the list, but his athleticism and potential could make him an interesting long-term project for the Jayhawks.
