CBS Sport’s Jon Rothstein released a series of tweets today with his SEC Basketball predictions and to no one’s surprise, there were a lot of Wildcats mentioned.

Rothstein named De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo to his SEC Preseason First Team. He named Bam Adebayo the SEC Player of the Year. Of the 15 impact freshman he listed, all incoming freshman except for Brad Calipari were listed. He also named Isaac Humphries one of 10 players who will have a breakout season.

TJ and Lachlan McLean discussed these expectations for the incoming freshman.
