Updated Prediction For The 2018 Final Four

Here's who's going to make next season's Final Four.

We last predicted the 2018 Final Four foursome during this past season's Final Four.

A decent amount has changed since then, though.

Underclassmen have decided to leave for the NBA. Others have thought about leaving but opted to return. Elite recruits have made decisions. Graduate transfers have announced commitments.

It's time for a new prediction.

Here's our latest prediction for the 2018 Final Four.

1. Arizona

The Wildcats have had an incredible offseason so far. Arizona is getting back Rawle Alkins and Allonzo Trier after both players considered leaving for the NBA Draft. Sean Miller also adds five-star forward Emmanuel Akot, who is re-classifying from 2018 to play during the 2017-18 season.

Arizona should be the preseason No. 1 team and Miller should get that Final Four monkey off his back.

2. Michigan State

The last time we predicted the 2018 Final Four, we had the Spartans in it, but their inclusion came with a pretty big asterisk. *As long as Miles Bridges decides to return for his sophomore season.

Well, Bridges is coming back, so we've got MSU in the Final Four.

3. Duke

The Blue Devils got a commitment from five-star point guard Trevon Duval and Grayson Allen elected to come back, too.

Duke's losing a lot, but there's enough talent and experience on this roster to make a run at another national title.

4. Florida

The Gators were a couple of plays away from making the Final Four this past season. Gone are Canyon Barry, Devin Robinson, Kasey Hill, but Mike White's team received a commitment from Egor Koulechov, a Russian guard transferring from Rice. He'll be eligible to play right away.

Florida will be a preseason top 10 team.

Who do you have making it San Antonio next year?
