I voted for Akot but Randolph is my number two. He is another player who I think, along with Akot, is going to be one of our main options in 18/19. I am excited for Ayton but you already know, for the most part, what you're going to get out of him next year (i.e. big time contributor, rebounding leader, etc.)

Whereas Akot and Randolph have the ability to be "x-factors" for us. I guess I am more excited for them simply because I am less certain as to how much they'll be able to contribute next year.

I'm most interested, but not " most excited" to see how much impact Barcello is able to bring. Could be a real sleeper ala TJ or an eventual redshirt. If successful, he alleviates the biggest concern on this team and keeps other potential backup pgs in their natural positions.

I voted for Randolph, but Akot is a gem and those two fit right where we have been weak.

I am hoping for a sort of ryan arcidiacono type of career out of Barcello. Won't be as successful as Ryan was his freshmen year but I am thinking he'll be a similar type of player by the end of his career.

I am most excited to see Barcello, because our season rides on his back and his production.  I am done hoping PJC can produce and it is unfair to the kid for all the expectations of a season to ride his back but at 5'8" or thereabout, he is just not capable of competing at the college level, IMHO.

I totally agree and am really hoping Barcello gets a lot of minutes after seeing what he can do on both ends of the floor. PJC hasn't been able to carry his weight on defense and he hasn't been able to stay healthy a full season. He however has improved each year and could be one of our best 3 point shooters. I'd be happy if they both got about 12 to 15 mins a game with the other time getting spread out.

Ayton is the obvious #1 as we know he will be starting and doing big things, but it's interesting to see who will come in 2nd since that is going to be the person everyone is most excited about since we really don't know what we're going to get out of the rest of the new comers.  I'm starting to lean on Ira Lee being a big surprise & exciting player this year, who ironically has the least amount of Votes in the Poll.

My vote went to E.Akot.
I am a fan of long, do-it-all SFs like L.James,P.George,J.Butler for a NBA example.
They are like a Swiss army knife that can do many things well enough to stay on the floor by allowing the coach to move them around in the lineup to utilize one of their skills.

If Akot is the passer that people make him out to be, a 6'8 Point-Forward is going to be HUGE for us next season.
Ayton is probably going to get the most juice, but recruits like Akot are the ones that keep the make everyone's job easier.
