I'll update this after we find out definitively which players are staying in the draft (or going pro regardless), and which ones are returning to school. For clarity, in terms of the Big Ten, I'm assuming the following key underclassmen currently declared for the draft return for another season:

Illinois: Kofi Cockburn
Iowa: Luka Garza
Michigan: Isaiah Livers
Michigan State: Aaron Henry
Minnesota: Marcus Carr

An * denotes the projected champion in a multiple-bid conference. Last season's final NET ranking is noted in parentheses.
