4. Trey Burke (Michigan) – When Burke (14.8 ppg, 4.6 apg) announced his return to the Wolverines, he turned the program into a national title contender. Glenn Robinson and Mitch McGary anchor one of the Big Ten’s top recruiting classes. Tim Hardaway Jr. is back, too. But Burke is the nucleus. He’s the guy that can elevate the Wolverines throughout the regular season and in March, when it will matter most. He was one of the top freshmen in the country last season. Next season, he’ll be the most essential player for a Wolverines team that could win the Big Ten and possibly reach Atlanta.
