Kadeem Jack, forward/center
2013-14 stat line: 14.3 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 1.3 bpg
2014-15 outlook: For a guy who was thrust into a starting role in his junior season, Jack handled the spotlight pretty well, becoming an effective big man for the Scarlet Knights. Jack’s play was one of the few bright spots for a Rutgers team that lost 21 games last season.
For Rutgers, the objective should be to continue to feed one of the most efficient post scorers in college basketball, as Jack shot 50 percent from the field last season. It may be another long season ahead for Rutgers but if the Knights are able to establish an interior presence in Jack, they may be able to climb their way to season over .500.
