Just off the top of my head...

Harrison Barnes might be the biggest one in recent history.

He and Marcus smart were both top 5 picks who came back for sophomore seasons. Didn’t work out for either in regards to draft stock

Jordan coming back not just for his sophomore year but also junior year at UNC was probably one of the biggest shocks in college basketball history, as far as people returning.

Jordan was not a threat to leave early after his freshman year. He wasn’t seen as a top 10 player in the conference let alone the country. He was a threat in 1983 to leave I suppose, though this was the era where Sampson became a 3-time POY without leaving early so I doubt it was a huge shock he stayed.
