Since the national title game, Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Final Four Most Outstanding Player, Tyus Jones, all declared for the 2015 NBA Draft. The cupboard is far from bare for Coach K. Grayson Allen, the forgotten freshmen turned title game star, returns along with Amile Jefferson, Marshall Plumlee and Matt Jones while transfer forward Sean Obi is eligible.

The program also adds freshmen Chase Jeter, Luke Kennard and Derryck Thornton while Brandon Ingram is also still considering Duke.

The Blue Devils are currently ranked No. 8 in College Basketball Talk‘s Way-Too-Early Preseason Rankings.
