Dazzling Dozen Diaper Dandies
I’ve listed my preseason All-Rolls Royce Team and Top 25. Now it’s time to announce my Dazzling Dozen Diaper Dandies for the upcoming season. These are players who are hitting the college hardwood for the first time and will make an immediate impact for their teams with their skill, passion and maybe some showmanship. The transition is never easy, but there’s a fierce competitive spirit each of these players brings in a new era of athleticism.
This might be one of the deeper classes of impactful freshmen I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m so excited to watch them develop into PTPers. All 12 are projected starters and eight are considered NBA lottery picks, which could make the 2024 draft one of the youngest on record.
It was frightful to see Bronny James get sidelined, but I’m keeping him on this list with the hopes we get to see his talent displayed at some point this year. Get well young man.
 
Here’s the Dazzling Dozen Diaper Dandies:
Xavier Booker, Michigan St.
Elliott Cadeau, UNC
Stephon Castle, UConn
Isaiah Collier, USC
Justin Edwards, Kentucky
Kwame Evans, Oregon
Bronny James, USC
Jared McCain, Duke
Mackenzie Mgbako, Indiana
DJ Wagner, Kentucky
Ja’Kobe Walter, Baylor
Cody Williams, Colorado
