Even with Coach K retiring, Duke appears to be in good hands with Jon Scheyer. The Blue Devils have a loaded recruiting class headlined by Dereck Lively. Following Duke at +750 is its ACC rival North Carolina at +1000. We’ll see who eventually comes back for the Tar Heels after this season’s run but there’s a strong chance Hubert Davis gets most of this squad back.

Kentucky, Kansas and Gonzaga are next in the odds table at +1200. The Wildcats will want to regroup after being upset by No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s in the 2022 tournament while the Bulldogs are still searching for that elusive national title. We’ll see who the Jayhawks get back from the 2022 team. UCLA and Arkansas come in at +1600, although the Bruins might be losing Johnny Juzang to the draft. The Razorbacks are one of the more intriguing teams on this list, with Eric Musselman adding three five-star recruits and three four-star recruits to an Elite Eight team.
