Man… for us sports fans it’s been crazy not having anything for 2 months, no March Madness was tough for all of us College Hoops fans, all of us sports fans use it as an outlet for enjoyment and it can help us move on from tough life situations, but with the COVID-19 pandemic it’s left no sports in the United States for the last 60 days other than NFL Free Agency and the NFL Draft. This is a College Basketball site though, and we’ve had nearly 900 players enter the Transfer Portal. For us die-hard college basketball fans, it has given us something to look forward to with guys making all kinds of decisions, which that’s been fun. With many decisions still up in the air, it is a good time to look at the Top-20 remaining transfers still on the board.
Wake Forest, Graduate Transfer. Final 4: Gonzaga, LSU, Iowa State, Illinois.
Brown is a 6’5 Guard, that averaged 12 PPG, 6 RPG, and 1 APG. Brown is a 32% shooter from deep, but is a really good Free Throw shooter at 83%. He’s good at getting to the rim and he’s a muscular guard so it makes sense. I think he goes to Gonzaga, if you have the opportunity to play for Mark Few you do it. They are by far the best team in College Basketball and going there gives him a shot at winning it all.
Mac McClung Georgetown, Sit One- Play Two.
I did a full breakdown on McClung. He’s heard from UNC, Maryland, Arizona State, Tennessee, USC, BYU, Wake, Florida, Georgia, Gonzaga and more. It’s too early to tell where he may go but Knoxville TN is close to Gate City VA, McClung also had a sister at Tennessee so I’ll guess the Vols for now.
DePaul, 6th Year graduate transfer.
I already did an in-depth article on Coleman-Lands too. I think he picks Michigan but that could change with the recent addition of Nojel Eastern.
East Tennessee State, Sit-One Play Two (He could get a waiver)
He’s heard from Wake, Tulsa, SDSU, BYU, Georgetown, USF. Based on that list he’d fit great at Wake with former coach, Steve Forbes had 10 PPG and 37% from deep last year as a Buccaneer.
UNLV, Graduate Transfer.
Tillman is a 6’7 Guard/Forward who transferred from Utah to UNLV to go back home in Las Vegas and he’s on the move again. Tillman wasn’t good last year, he only had 10 PPG, on 37% from the field and 29% from 3. He took a huge step back from the previous 2 seasons as a member of the Utes. Expect him to have High-Major interest due to his versatility, but we’ll see.
Stony Brook Graduate Transfer.
Foreman played one season at Stony Brook started at the University Of Chattanooga in his home state of Tennessee. The 6’1” Guard sat out in 2018-19 and had 15 PPG, while shooting 36% from 3. He probably won’t be a game changing player but can provide good minutes and shooting. He’s heard from Cal, Minnesota, BYU so far. I’m sure the list will expand but BYU would be a pretty good spot.
Stony Brook Sit One-Play One.
Olaniyi has has heard DePaul, Nevada, Minnesota, Arkansas, Xavier, and Miami thus far per Jeff Goodman. He averaged 18 PPG last season and is going to be a big get for whatever school he chooses.
East Tennessee State Sit One-Play One (could get waiver)
Hodges has heard from Xavier, Butler, Arkansas, DePaul, Vanderbilt, and Mississippi State, while an ETSU return is still an option, and I think he goes that route unless he hears from better teams. I think he and Williamson are in a different spot. I think Hodges stays at ETSU, in part because none of these teams will make the tournament this season more than likely and the team with the best chance at that is ETSU.
Nebraska Sit-One Play-Two
Mack is in a weird spot, he started at St John’s, played one game, and went to JUCO last season. He is going to be a Junior after one season in Lincoln, as his one game at SJU didn’t count towards his eligibility, Mack is a do it all guy, he averaged 12/4/6 was his stat line for the season and had a Triple-Double early in the year. While he only shot 38% from the field, his talent is evident, he’s from Austin, TX so if he goes back to Texas maybe he can get a waiver, maybe look for the Texas Longhorns to talk to Mack.
USC Sit One-Play Two.
The guard has released his final 3 of Arkansas, Dayton, UCF and I think he picks Dayton. It makes a ton of sense, Dayton loses Jalen Crutcher and Ibi Watson after the season and they’ll need help at Guard spot.
UAB Sit One-Play Two
The 6’10 forward, has heard from Duke, Boston College, USF, Fairfield, and Troy (@Zsmart3) reported. He had 6 PPG, 5 RPG last year but has a high ceiling.
Stony Brook Graduate Transfer
Garcia joins teammates Elijah Olaniyi and Makale Foreman as players to leave Stony Brook. Garcia will receive a little bit less interest from high-major schools than his former teammates. Garcia is still a physical guard who should find a spot to play on a good mid-major team.
