per Bossi:

#2. Marcus Carr, Minnesota

2020-21 stats: 19.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.

Bossi’s take: Keep in mind that the caveat here is that Marcus Carr is going to check his NBA Draft status first. Also, the high scoring Canadian who has shown he can put a team on his back late is likely going to limit the schools he considers to a very select few. But, a guy with his experience, his proven ability to go out and make game winning plays against Big Ten competition is going to be in demand.

Schools are going to have to ask themselves if going after him is worth the risk of missing out on others and Carr potentially choosing to go pro. But, that gamble could ultimately pay off huge if Carr elects to play college ball in 2021-22. Should he end up in college, it isn’t difficult to see him putting up big numbers at a blue blood.

#14. Liam Robbins, Minnesota

2020-21 stats: 11.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game.

Bossi’s take: The road for Liam Robbins has been a winding one. From pretty much unknown as a high schooler in Iowa, to a Kansas prep school and then back to his home state to attend Drake. After taking a huge step as a sophomore at Drake, Robbins hit the portal last season and received a waiver to be immediately eligible at Minnesota last season where he led the Big Ten in blocked shots.

Now with Richard Pitino fired, Robbins is back in the portal. Luka Garza is gone at Iowa and Jack Nunge is transferring, if Robbins wanted to go home again the fit would seem to be there. But, a seven-footer like him will be in high demand so he’ll have plenty of options.


Go Gophers!!
