Top 50 NBA Prospects Returning to College for 2020/2021.

It’s early, but here’s quick a look at some of the top college returners for the 2021 NBA Draft. There should be a few more names that enter this pool as players start to focus on making their decisions official over the coming months.

There isn’t a ton of star power here, but there are solid role players and some guys with upside that could burst onto the scene and raise their stock with breakout seasons.

Disclaimer: This is me strictly looking at them through the lens of being NBA prospects, not based off how well I think they’ll do in college.

Awaiting decisions

Tyrell Terry (Stanford), DeAndre Williams (Memphis), Xavier Tillman (Michigan St.), Aaron Henry (Michigan St.), Luka Garza (Iowa), Jared Butler (Baylor), MaCio Teague (Baylor), Corey Kispert (Gonzaga), Joel Ayayi (Gonzaga), Filip Petrusev (Gonzaga), Isaiah Livers (Michigan), Yves Pons (Tennessee), Isaiah Joe (Arkansas), Matt Mitchell (SDSU), Colbey Ross (Pepperdine), Remy Martin (Arizona St.), Trendon Watford (LSU), Darius Days (LSU), Javonte Smart (LSU), Tre Mann (Florida), Ayo Dosunmu (Illinois), Kofi Cockburn (Illinois), McKinley Wright (Colorado), Sandro Mamukelashvili (Seton Hall), CJ Elleby (Washington St.).

It is very possible that I could be missing someone, as this list is bulky and I am just one person constructing this, so feel free to let me know if anyone was omitted. Without further ado, let’s dive into an early look at the top returning prospects in college basketball.
