PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Washington. The bad news for the Huskies is that they’ll be without four of last year’s starters in 2022-23. Terrell Brown, Daejon Davis, Emmitt Matthews and Nate Roberts are all gone. That said, Washington gets some enticing transfer players like Noah Williams and Keion Brooks. The new guys will have their hands full trying to fill in the production gap, but if all goes well Washington shouldn’t see much of a dip.
