High expectations for Hoosiers in 2015-16

Several national publications released their early preseason rankings for next season. See where Indiana falls and more here.

The college basketball season ended on Monday night, and so it's only natural that we begin looking toward next season. ESPN.com and several other outlets released their "way too early" preseason rankings for next year, and Indiana is featured in all of them.

ESPN has Indiana at No. 16 and Joe Lunardi penciled the Hoosiers in as a No. 2 seed in his first 2016 bracketology. CBS has the Hoosiers at No. 12, The Sporting News has them at No. 14, and SBNation.com has them at No. 9.

Expectations are high for the Hoosiers given the fact they had no seniors on last year's team and they bring in a recruiting class that includes 6-foot-10 McDonalds All-American Thomas Bryant and four-star forward Juwan Morgan. If Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams return to school, as they are expected to do, Indiana will compete for a Big Ten title next season.

So, what do you think? Where would you rank the Hoosiers if everybody comes back? Chime in on our message boards.
