Texas A&M Aggies – G Manny Obaseki
A former highly-rated four-star prospect out of high school, could the 2023-24 season mark a potential breakout campaign for the junior? Having averaged a combined 4.1 PPG across the last two seasons, Obaseki appeared in 20 games off the Aggies bench a year ago to average 5.2 PPG, 1.4 RPG, and 1 APG, and is likely to be a key piece for a 2023-24 Texas A&M team that is among the best in SEC basketball entering the year.
Vanderbilt Commodores – F Lee Dort
Concluding with Vanderbilt, the Commodores pick for a potential breakout candidate in 2023-24 goes to Dort, who is entering his sophomore season in Nashville. As the Commodores prepare to replace the lost production of Liam Robbins, Dort could play a key role in that after averaging 1.7 PPG and 2.1 RPG in 17 games off Vanderbilt’s bench last season.
