The college basketball season’s premature end did nothing to slow the proliferation of transfers; it just got things started earlier than usual. There have been about 40 players entering the NCAA transfer portal each day since the season ended in mid-March, and that’s unlikely to slow down anytime soon.
For now, we have the transfers separated into two categories: sit-out transfers and immediately eligible graduate transfers. That could change to one big group in June, as the Division I Council is expected to vote on a change to the transfer rule that could eliminate sit-out transfers.
Graduate transfers eligible immediately | Spring sit-outs eligible in 2021-22 | Eligible at 2020-21 semester break | Sit-outs eligible in 2020-21

12. Kevin Marfo, 6-8, 245 pounds, PF, RS Jr., Quinnipiac

19. Rapolas Ivanauskas, 6-10, 230 pounds, C, RS Jr., Colgate
If Ivanauskas can replicate his 2018-19 shooting form — 43.4% from 3-point range — he will look too low in these rankings. But he dropped to 26.3% last season, still managing to average 13.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.

Committed to USC
White drew plenty of West Coast interest after entering the transfer portal but will head to USC next season. Averaged 14.5 points and 8.4 rebounds last season, and the Trojans will hope he returns to his 2018-19 shooting form: 39.0% from 3.
24. Chevez Goodwin, 6-9, 225 pounds, RS Jr., Wofford
Committed to USC
Flew slightly under the radar when he entered the portal, but Andy Enfield and USC got a capable frontcourt piece. Averaged 11.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.

Committed to USC
Averaged 15.0 points as a sophomore before dropping back to 9.1 points and 2.1 assists this past season. Finished the season strong, however, including a 20-point, five-assist outing against Saint Mary’s.

46. James Bishop, 6-2, 190 pounds, G, Fr., LSU
Committed to George Washington

47. Warith Alatishe, 6-7, 200 pounds, PF, So., Nicholls
Given the dearth of reliable big men in the transfer portal, Alatishe has seen plenty of high majors come calling. Averaged 10.9 points and 8.3 rebounds last season.
48. Koreem Ozier, 6-1, 180 pounds, G, So., Sacred Heart
One of three high-level players to leave Sacred Heart this offseason, Ozier improved his playmaking ability as a sophomore while also averaging 14.0 points. Finished the season with 35 points in two games at the NEC tournament.

16. Dajour Dickens, 7-foot, 215 pounds, C, Jr., Old Dominion

17. Eli Wright, 6-foot-5, 175 pounds, SG, Jr., Western Kentucky

20. Galen “Tolu” Smith, 6-foot-10, 240 pounds, PF, So., Western Kentucky
Committed to Mississippi State
Ben Howland struck quickly with Smith, who left Western Kentucky last summer and enrolled in Starkville in September. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 34 games as a freshman.
Sit-out transfers eligible for the 2020-21 season
1. Sam Hauser, 6-foot-8, 225 pounds, PF, RS Jr., Virginia (from Marquette)

2. Joey Hauser, 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, PF, RS So., Michigan State (from Marquette)
The former top-50 recruit and brother of Sam Hauser (see above) has two years left to play. Joey has played only one season of college basketball but already used part of a redshirt year in 2017-18 and would have to be granted a medical waiver to play beyond 2021-22. He was inconsistent down the stretch in 2018-19, but he still averaged 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds and shot 42.5% from 3. He had a waiver request to play in 2019-20 denied — much to Tom Izzo’s chagrin.
3. David Jenkins, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, SG, RS So., UNLV (from South Dakota State)
After playing second fiddle to Mike Daum, the big-time scorer (19.7 PPG, 45.3 3PT%) left following coach T.J. Otzelberger’s departure for UNLV last offseason … and ended up back with Otzelberger in Vegas.
4. Jahvon Quinerly, 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, PG, RS Fr., Alabama (from Villanova)
A five-star prospect in 2018, Quinerly didn’t beat Collin Gillespie for a starting role, then struggled for most of his freshman season at Villanova in 2018-19. He averaged 3.2 points and did not receive a waiver to play immediately.
5. Anthony Duruji, 6-foot-7, 215 pounds, SF, RS So., Florida (from Louisiana Tech)
One of the best pure athletes in this group of transfers, Duruji averaged 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds in 2018-19.
6. Jordan Brown, 6-foot-11, 210 pounds, PF, RS Fr., Arizona (from Nevada)

7. Joel Ntambwe, 6-foot-9, 210 pounds, F, RS Fr., Texas Tech (from UNLV)
Ntambwe chose the Red Raiders over UConn and Nebraska. He averaged 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 2018-19 and shot 38.6% from 3-point range. He had a waiver request to play immediately denied.
8. Eric Williams Jr., 6-foot-6, 205 pounds, F, RS So., Oregon (from Duquesne)
It didn’t take long for Williams to drum up a list of big-time schools, and he chose the Ducks over Missouri. He averaged 14.0 points and 7.6 rebounds.
9. Jaylen Fisher, 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, PG, RS Jr., Grand Canyon (from TCU)
Fisher struggled with injuries the past two seasons and played only nine games before leaving the Horned Frogs in 2018-19. He averaged 12.1 points and shot 44.1% from 3.
10. D.J. Harvey, 6-foot-6, 225 pounds, SG, RS So., Vanderbilt (from Notre Dame)
A former top-50 prospect, Harvey had a solid sophomore season in 2018-19 and enough name cachet to land in the SEC. He averaged 10.7 points and 4.2 rebounds.
11. Eugene Omoruyi, 6-foot-7, 234 pounds, SF, RS Jr., Oregon (from Rutgers)
Omoruyi pulled a surprising move by leaving Rutgers in late May. He was very productive in 2018-19 for the Scarlet Knights, averaging 13.8 points and 7.2 rebounds.
12. R.J. Cole, 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, PG, RS So., UConn (from Howard)

13. Justice Sueing, 6-foot-7, 215 pounds, SF, RS So., Ohio State (from California)

14. Caleb Daniels, 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, SG, RS So., Villanova (from Tulane)
Daniels left after the Green Wave fired Mike Dunleavy Sr. and hired Ron Hunter. He averaged 16.9 points and 3.3 assists in 2018-19. The early buzz on Daniels out of Villanova has been positive.
15. Takal Molson, 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, SG, RS So., Seton Hall (from Canisius)
One of the better two-way players in the MAAC, Molson averaged 16.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 2018-19. He will help replace Myles Powell’s scoring next season.
16. Cormac Ryan, 6-foot-5, 190 pounds, SG, RS Fr., Notre Dame (from Stanford)

17. Thomas Allen, 6-foot-1, 184 pounds, SG, RS So., NC State (from Nebraska)

18. Darius McNeill, 6-foot-3, 182 pounds, SG, RS So., SMU (from California)
The Houston native averaged 11.0 points and shot 34.9% from 3-point range in 2018-19.
19. Jared Bynum, 5-foot-10, 172 pounds, PG, RS Fr., Providence (from Saint Joseph’s)
Given his status as a sit-one, play-three point guard, a number of Big East schools were involved, with the Friars winning his rights. He averaged 11.3 points and 4.5 assists in 2018-19.
20. Nick Honor, 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, PG, RS Fr., Clemson (from Fordham)
Honor was a coveted transfer after averaging 15.3 points and 3.0 assists in 2018-19, and he landed in the ACC. He has three years left to play.
21. Adam Flagler, 6-foot-3, 170 pounds, SG, RS Fr., Baylor (from Presbyterian)
The freshman of the year in the Big South, Flagler averaged 15.9 points and shot 38.2% from 3-point range in 2018-19.
22. Kevin Easley, 6-foot-6, 232 pounds, SF, RS Fr., TCU (from Chattanooga)
It’s no surprise that Easley had high-major interest, choosing TCU from a group of suitors that included Washington State. He has three years to play, averaged 14.2 points and 6.7 rebounds, and shot 39.7% from 3 with the Mocs in 2018-19.
23. Nysier Brooks, 6-foot-11, 240 pounds, C, RS Jr., Miami (Fla.) (from Cincinnati)
Brooks is a sit-one, play-one addition in Coral Gables, but he was very effective as a defender and rebounder in Cincinnati’s system. He averaged 8.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 2018-19.
24. Noah Horchler, 6-foot-8, 210 pounds, PF, RS Jr., Providence (from North Florida)

25. Ithiel Horton, 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, SG, RS Fr., Pittsburgh (from Delaware)
Horton is an outstanding outside shooter who totaled 73 points in his final three games last season. He shot 40.9% from 3 and averaged 13.2 points as a freshman in 2018-19.
26. Tyree Appleby, 6-foot-1, 165 pounds, PG, RS So., Florida (from Cleveland State)

27. Desmond Cambridge, 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, SG, RS So., Nevada (from Brown)

32. Miles Norris, 6-foot-10, 210 pounds, PF, RS Fr., UC Santa Barbara (from Oregon)
The former ESPN 100 prospect didn’t get an extended role with the Ducks in 2018-19, but a year off could be very useful for Norris. He averaged 3.3 points.
33. J’Raan Brooks, 6-foot-9, 220 pounds, PF, RS Fr., Washington (from USC)
This ESPN 100 prospect committed and decommitted from both USC and St. John’s before ending up back at USC out of high school. He averaged 2.0 points and 1.3 rebounds in 2018-19.
34. Dalano Banton, 6-foot-8, 190 pounds, SF, RS Fr., Nebraska (from Western Kentucky)
It was not a huge surprise to see Banton end up at the high-major level, despite his middling numbers (3.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists) in 2018-19. He has good size and playmaking ability.
35. Michael Weathers, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, SG, RS So., Texas Southern (from Oklahoma State)

37. Terry Nolan, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, SG, RS So., Bradley (from George Washington)

38. Seventh Woods, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, G, RS Jr., South Carolina (from North Carolina)
This hyped recruit never quite carved out a role with the Tar Heels. He averaged 2.5 points and 2.1 assists in 2018-19.
39. Marcus Shaver, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, G, RS So., Boise State (from Portland)

45. Neftali Alvarez, 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, PG, RS Fr., Mercer (from Fairfield)
Alvarez is a skilled point guard from Puerto Rico who should make an immediate impact for Bears. He averaged 11.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 2018-19.
46. Jacob Grandison, 6-foot-6, 200 pounds, SG, RS So., Illinois (from Holy Cross)
Grandison will combine with a talented 2020 recruiting class for Brad Underwood. Grandison averaged 13.9 points and shot 36.5% from 3 in 2018-19.
47. Felipe Haase, 6-foot-9, 253 pounds, C, RS So., Mercer (from South Carolina)
