Three-Point Shooting Percentage: 40.8

Caris LeVert had a great sophomore season, but he was a little overshadowed by the Big Ten Player of the Year. Nik Stauskas is taking his talent to the next level, so LeVert will have to step up, and step up he will.

Three-Point Shooting Percentage: 41

Rasheed Sulaimon went way under-the-radar this past season, but that tends to happen when you play next to a player of Jabari Parker’s caliber. Parker and Rodney Hood are gone, but in comes the most talented recruiting class in the nation. Still, Sulaimon will have no problem being one of the best shooters in the nation.

Tyler Haws has put up 20+ points per game in the past two seasons and should challenge for the scoring title in his junior year. He may not take as many shots from deep as other players on this list, but he is still capable of knocking down the long-ball at a high rate.
