The Way-Too-Early Top 25 rankings for next season in college basketball have been updated, and now that rosters are beginning to crystallize, it's time to get familiar with each team. Now that we've identified the incoming freshmen to know and the future stars of reality TV, it's time to think next-level. Which players on top-25 teams have the brightest NBA futures?

1. Harry Giles, Duke Blue Devils

Duke's current roster might have more than one potential perennial NBA All-Star. But Giles will stand out if he can stay healthy. Giles was No. 1 overall in the 2016 ESPN 100 despite tearing the ACL in his right knee during the season opener and sitting out his senior year. That was his second ACL injury; the first one, on the left knee. happened before his sophomore season. When healthy, Giles can dominate in the paint. -- C.L. Brown

2. Josh Hart, Villanova Wildcats

The junior waited until the last possible day before he announced his decision to return to the defending national champion. Needless to say, the decision was greeted by hosannas on the Main Line, and the Wildcats' leading scorer will only get more touches now that Ryan Arcidiacono has graduated. Whether it changes NBA executives' impressions of Hart remains to be seen. He is what he is -- and in the NBA that's a 6-foot-5 tweener -- but if the NBA wants to get in the business of drafting solid and dependable, if not flashy, players who excel in leadership and crafty scoring, Hart is worth any risk involved. -- Dana O'Neil

3. De'Aaron Fox, Kentucky Wildcats

You could pick a variety of players from this roster, but Fox could be a special one-and-done player who matures into an NBA All-Star. He has been compared to John Wall. And that's not crazy when you see Fox slash to the rim, make plays in traffic, distribute the rock like a point guard 10 years his senior, and finish plays on the break. The 6-4, five-star prospect fits perfectly into small-ball NBA schemes that require discipline, agility and versatility. Fox is unique. -- Myron Medcalf

4. Josh Jackson, Kansas Jayhawks

This one is fairly easy because there's a chance that Jackson could be the No. 1 overall pick next June (if Giles doesn't come back healthy from a second major knee injury). Jackson is a strong, athletic, tough wing but isn't a lights-out perimeter shooter. He can really get to the basket, finish around the rim, and defend at a high level. Jackson plays with a high motor and, given his blend of quickness and power, he might be a better version of Jaylen Brown and Stanley Johnson. -- Jeff Goodman

5. Austin Nichols, Virginia Cavaliers

Coach Tony Bennett's success at UVa is not exactly predicated on glittering talent, let alone future All-Stars, and the 2016-17 Cavs -- good recruiting class aside -- aren't stacked with future pros. A former top-20 recruit who got stuck on two mediocre Memphis teams before transferring, Nichols is a superior rim protector with plenty of low-post polish. He should thrive in Bennett's system; his draft stock may rise in kind. -- Eamonn Brennan

6. Justin Jackson, North Carolina Tar Heels

Jackson declared for the NBA draft and played at the combine in Chicago. He had his moments, but he still showed that he needs more strength and consistency. He has a chance to shine this season with Brice Johnson gone. If Jackson puts up the necessary numbers, his stock will soar. He could stand to add more strength, too. But he may end up being the top prospect coming out of Chapel Hill next season. -- Andy Katz

7. Chris Boucher, Oregon Ducks

While the NBA is moving more and more to a perimeter game, there's still a need for rim protectors and rebounders. Boucher ranked second in the NCAA with 110 blocks last season. At 6-10, he weighs only 190 pounds, so he'll need to beef up and bring his rebounding numbers up from his 7.4-per-game average. But Boucher also brings coveted outside shooting to the frontcourt. He shot 33.9 percent from 3-point range last season. -- Brown

8. Nigel Hayes, Wisconsin Badgers

The rising senior has improved every year, topping out with a career-best 15.7 points per game last season. He needs to develop a more reliable 3-point shot for the wing position he would likely play in the NBA, but Hayes has so many intangibles -- leadership, intelligence, work ethic. An NBA team that takes a leap of faith could be rewarded with a solid player for a long time. -- O'Neil

9. Edmond Sumner, Xavier Musketeers

After a standout freshman season, Sumner could have tested the waters like so many young prospects who took advantage of the new rules that allowed underclassmen to enter the NBA draft and remove their names by May 25. But he didn't. That's good news for Xavier because Sumner is a star. He averaged 11 points per game last season, and the 6-4 guard could blossom into a first-team All-Big East performer next season. If anyone on that roster has a chance to become a future NBA All-Star, it's Sumner, who is already slotted as a lottery pick in some 2017 mock drafts. -- Medcalf

10. Miles Bridges, Michigan State Spartans

Bridges is the first top-10 recruit (No. 8) Tom Izzo has brought to East Lansing since Shannon Brown more than a decade ago. The 6-8 Bridges is a matchup nightmare because of his ability to play both forward spots. He's too quick for a power forward to defend and too strong for wings. Bridges can score at all three levels, so he could easily become a lottery pick after just one season with the Spartans. -- Goodman

11. OG Anunoby, Indiana Hoosiers

Is Thomas Bryant more likely to be a lottery pick next summer? Yes. Is he more talented at the moment? Sure. Is Bryant's NBA ceiling -- somewhere in the "solid rotation big man" genus -- already faintly visible? Probably. Anunoby's freshman season was a months-long tribute to the scene where Neo plugs into the Matrix and immediately learns kung fu. Anunoby's ceiling doesn't exist. -- Brennan

12. Allonzo Trier, Arizona Wildcats

Trier was an All-Pac-12 freshman team member. He had eight games of 20 or more points. When the Wildcats were hit with injuries, Trier remained a consistent threat. He is only going to star more in the coming season. Expect the numbers, and his draft stock, to rise. -- Katz

13. Deng Adel, Louisville Cardinals

The versatile 6-7 wing is a bit of a late bloomer, but wait until he realizes his potential. Adel arrived from Australia by way of Sudan in 2013. His 7-foot wingspan is the length NBA scouts love to see. His role will change considerably for the Cardinals this season, and he'll become more of a scorer. Few can match his ability to finish in the open floor. -- Brown

14. Caleb Swanigan, Purdue Boilermakers

The freshman chose not to be a one-and-done departure, returning after a solid freshman season in which he averaged 10.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. It was a smart decision, as he still needs to work on a more consistent jumper to impress the NBA folks. But Swanigan has what the NBA loves: upside and potential. -- O'Neil

15. Tarik Phillip, West Virginia Mountaineers

Devin Williams should be the name here. But he decided to turn pro early. Questionable decision. So Phillip probably has the best chance to become an NBA All-Star. He's a tough, 6-3 guard who averaged 9.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game last season. He can play both ways, and he's relentless in that West Virginia press. He would have to make a sizable leap next season and then show up in workouts to earn a spot in the league. But he's as capable of any player on the roster of reaching that goal. -- Medcalf

16. Zach Collins, Gonzaga Bulldogs

I'm just not sold that Nigel Williams-Goss, Johnathan Williams III or Przemek Karnowski will be NBA players. Collins, a 7-foot incoming freshman from Las Vegas, has a chance. He's got a rare combination of size, skill and mobility. Collins can stretch the defense with his ability to step out and make shots from the perimeter. He also runs the court well for a big man and finishes well around the basket. Time will tell whether Collins develops, but he has a higher upside than the older guys in Spokane. -- Goodman

17. Lonzo Ball, UCLA Bruins

The No. 4-ranked player in the class of 2016 -- and the top-ranked point guard -- is a lead guard in every sense of the word. He's an excellent ball handler, passer and playmaker who also happens to be a deadly scorer from 30 feet and in. Ball would be UCLA's most likely future All-Star even if he wasn't precisely the type of guard who dominates modern NBA backcourts. But that doesn't hurt. -- Brennan

18. Melo Trimble, Maryland Terrapins

Trimble wanted badly to leave after last season. But he couldn't command a first-round guarantee. He likely would have gone somewhere in the second round. He'll be one of the top point guards in the country next season. He has a chance to be Big Ten Player of the Year. If he can be more consistent, he has a real shot to be a first-round pick. -- Katz

19. Emmett Naar, Saint Mary's Gaels

In the tradition of Patty Mills (San Antonio Spurs) and Matthew Dellavedova (Cleveland Cavaliers), Emmett Naar is trying to be the latest guard from Saint Mary's to find his niche in the NBA. The Gaels are only as good as Naar makes them. His 223 assists last season tied Dellavedova for the school's single-season record. Naar led the team in scoring with 14 points per game and shot 41.8 percent from 3-point range. -- Brown

20. Maurice Watson Jr., Creighton Bluejays

No Kris Dunn. No Ryan Arcidiacono. That leaves Watson as perhaps the best point guard in the Big East. The heady distributor averaged 6.5 assists per game last season while still managing to score 14.1 points per game. Barring an unlikely growth spurt, the 5-10 Watson will have to continually deal with skepticism, but he's got the smarts and the ability to play, a skill that the NBA would be wise to value. -- O'Neil

21. E.C. Matthews, Rhode Island Rams

Matthews suffered a horrific knee injury during the first game of the 2015-16 season. But he'll be back in 2016-17 to contend for All-America honors. He averaged 16.9 points per game in 2014-15. The 6-foot-5 wing has legitimate NBA size and the skill set to make it to the NBA. And after he returns this season from last year's unfortunate injury, he'll show everyone that he also has the work ethic, which is a trait that all NBA stars share. -- Medcalf

22. Jacob Evans, Cincinnati Bearcats

The Louisiana native averaged 8.4 points as a freshman last season but could really make a jump because of his size, ball skills and shooting ability. Evans is 6-5 and athletic, and he can make shots from deep. He looks the part, and if he can prove he can make shots at a high level, there's no reason to think he won't make a lot of money playing professionally -- maybe even in the NBA. -- Goodman

23. Jonathan Isaac, Florida State Seminoles

The No. 12-ranked player in the class of 2016 is already a projected lottery pick in more than a few 2017 mock drafts, and it's not hard to see why: Isaac is faster and more agile than any 6-10 human has a right to be. He's also Brandon Ingram-thin and far more raw. Still, the template for a switch-everything All-NBA defender is hard-coded in his DNA. -- Brennan

24. Amida Brimah, Connecticut Huskies

Brimah declared for the NBA draft but didn't stay in after not getting an invite to the combine. He has the potential to be a monster in the middle. He can block shots, rebound and run the floor. He must be injury-free and develop a more consistent post-up game. If he can do that, there is hope that he could be a backup big man in the league. -- Katz

25. Tyler Lydon, Syracuse Orange

Lydon is the prototype stretch-4. The 6-9 forward shot 41 percent from 3-point range last season and helped the Orange reach the Final Four. He ranked fourth in the ACC in blocked shots with 1.8 per game. Lydon could have been a first-round pick this week if he had stayed in the draft. Chad Ford listed him at No. 42 in his top-100 prospect rankings before players declared. -- Brown
