As we sit here daydreaming about the excitement of next year’s various sports seasons, we couldn’t help but think about who the top returning basketball players in the ACC are. Luckily for us, the ACC Digital Network took a first crack at it already.
Spoiler alert, Virginia’s London Perrantes checks in at No. 5 on the list as the potential emerging leader now that both Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill have moved on (though not in our hearts). Perrantes is behind Duke’s Grayson Allen, Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame, North Carolina’s Joel Berry, and Florida State’s Dwayne Bacon.
Even Virginia Tech, by all accounts a rising program, lands an honorable mention here.
What do you think, Cavaliers fans? We’re all counting on Perrantes already, but are there any other Hoos that should have received a mention? Or will Virginia be able to continue to ride their wave of success on Perrantes’s shoulders?
