21. Texas A&M

The Aggies are in a state of flux because of the health problems surrounding new head coach Billy Kennedy, who is on a leave of absence after being diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's disease. Kennedy, however, has vowed to return to the court, where he inherited one of the top teams in the Big 12. Forward Khris Middleton is easily Texas A&M's top talent. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 14.4 points as a sophomore last season, when he displayed a versatile skill set that drew the attention of NBA scouts. The Aggies also have one of the Big 12's more underrated players in hard-working senior forward David Loubeau. The X factor may be guard Elston Turner, who has been one of the team's most impressive players in preseason workouts after transferring from Washington. -- Jason King
