- Stefan Jankovic (Missouri)- With his combination of size and versatility, you can never count out Jankovic.
- Kaza Keane (Illinois St)- Keane has compiled great experience and developed leadership over the years. He is fresh off a run with the Canadian junior national team which has surely helped with the growth of his game.
