UPDATED TOP 15 PLAYERS IN THE TRANSFER PORTAL

Andrew Nembhard

Florida – Sit One-Play Two

Upon Andrew Nembhard entering the transfer portal he instantly became the most highly sought after transfer available. Nembhard should get a lot of interest, he has already heard from Gonzaga, Duke, Oregon, Memphis, Georgetown, UCLA and USC. He averaged 11.2 points and 5.6 assists last year for the Gators and will work well as a combo guard at his next spot.

L.J Figueroa

St John’s – Sit One-Play One

Figueroa has heard from Memphis, Dayton, Oregon, UCLA, Texas Tech, Samford, Auburn, Arkansas, Georgia Tech per @EvanDaniels. Figueroa has averaged 14 points per game over the last 2 seasons for the Red Storm and now looks to move on. Figueroa had injury issues at points in the season and wasn’t as good as the previous season as his FG Percentage was only 39%.

Justin Smith 

Indiana – Grad Transfer

No real update here, but Indiana’s longtime forward will grad transfer. Per @JeffBorzello Illinois, Georgetown, Iowa State, Northwestern, Purdue, Maryland, Mississippi State, Arkansas, DePaul, Notre Dame, Oregon, Xavier, Boston College, Arizona State, Wake Forest, Tulsa, New Mexico, Nevada, NC State, and Virginia Tech have all reached out to him as of yesterday. I would guess as of now a final 5 would look something like DePaul, Arizona State, Illinois, Virginia Tech, and Maryland. As of now, I think he’s DePaul bound but we’ll see. Smith had 10 points, and 6 rebounds per game for the Hoosiers last season. I think he profiles best as a power forward or small-ball center rather than a wing guy.

Justyn Mutts

Delaware – Grad Transfer, two years left

A full story out on Mutts along with an interview out, he’s heard from NC State Arkansas Houston Wake Forest Virginia Tech Purdue DePaul Vanderbilt Tulsa St John’s Georgia Southern thus far. Mutts is a great talent that will do great things for another team.

Both Gach 

Utah – Sit-One Play Two

Final 5 of Creighton, Iowa State, Minnesota, Maryland, Auburn. Gach hasn’t been overly impressive in college, he’s been super inefficient, shooting 25% from deep but it’s an upside play as he’s a 6’6″ athletic combo guard. I like Gach to the Golden Gophers and he should receive a waiver for returning back home.

Cam Mack
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, who averaged 12/4/6 was his stat line for the season and even 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.

Makhtar Gueye

UAB – Sit One-Play Two

The 6’10” forward, has heard from Duke, Boston College, USF, Fairfield, and Troy (@Zsmart3) reported. He had 6 points and 5 rebounds per game last year but has a high ceiling.

Carte’are Gordon

SLU-DEPAUL-JUCO, immediately eligible

I listed all of Gordon’s schools because he’s been to three schools in two years and has played less than 20 total games. The Former Top-100 recruit, played 13 Games as a Billiken, had 8 PPG and 4 RPG, before transferring midseason to DePaul, where he never suited up there and transferred again. This time to Northwest Florida State CC, where he was later kicked out midseason, Carte’are has stated they mislead and lied to him on his twitter page, but leaving 3 schools in a year and a half isn’t a great look. He’s obviously talented and someone will take a chance on him, plus he can play right away.

Nike Sibande

Miami Ohio – Sit one play one

Sibande is down to Georgia, Georgetown, Xavier, Arkansas, Alabama. Sibande has to Sit One-Play One which drops him on my list, usually if you’re getting a Sit-Out guy you want more than one season. The 6’4″ Guard had 14 points and 5 rebounds per game while shooting 44% From the field, but he’s not much of a shooter only 32% from three but that could be improved if he plays more off-ball. 247sports has 100% Crystal Ball for Sibande to Alabama.

Isaiah Washington

Iona – Sit-One Play-One

Washington transferred out of Minnesota following the 2018-19 season and the New York Native went back home to play for coach Tim Cluess and the Gaels. The problem with that is Cluess was sick last season and didn’t coach and retired following the season, then they hired the son of his former coach, Rick Pitino. I could see why Washington may have wanted out after the elder Pitino said to a writer about his son Richard’s team a few seasons ago “I like his team this year. I’m not crazy about the point guard position. I think he needed… now if Isaiah Washington can mature out of the social media world and into the real Basketball world of how to get it done, then they have promise. If not, he’s just got to find a different point guard and move on.” Obviously referring to Isaiah being an internet sensation in High School creating the group “Jelly Fam” along with Naz Reid who’s now on the Timberwolves, Jahvon Quinerly (Alabama), Jordan Walker (Tulane), Sidney Wilson (Transfer Portal). Not sure who’s in on Washington but it’s hard to imagine him getting a ton of High-Major looks.

Franco Miller Jr

Ole Miss Guard – Sit one play three

Miller Jr redshirted in 2018-19 and only played 19 games in 2019-20 and 7 minutes per game, he averaged 0.3 points per game which isn’t good. He held offers from Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oregon, St. Bonaventure but chose Ole Miss. I’m sure Miller Jr will end up at a lower high-major or good mid-major and that may be the best for him.

Sidney Wilson

UConn – Sit one play two

The 6’7″ Sit One-Play Two Forward from the Bronx only had 3 PPG. He’s not a good shooter but has great athleticism and was a 4-star recruit so someone will take a chance on him.

Serrel Smith Jr

Maryland – Sit One-Play Two

The former Maryland 3-star guard who never did much as a Terrapin is on the move and should garner a lot on interest. He only averaged 7 minutes per game this season, so he didn’t provide much but a lot of mid-major teams will be in on Smith

Michael Wynn

Wake Forest – Sit One Play Three

He’s a former 3-star recruit, we haven’t seen a list but I think he’s worth a spot here not many options, but he’s also 6’6” and could return to Wake also.

Brandon Averette

Utah Valley – Graduate Transfer

Averette started his career at Oklahoma State and played two seasons for the Cowboys before transferring to Utah Valley and sat the 2018-19 season, played this season had 12.8 points per game, he’s not a good shooter at 32% from three and 45% overall. He’s 5’11 but should garner some high major interest.

Lafayette Dorsey Jr

Nicholls State – Sit one play two

Dorsey who just finished his sophomore season is a 6’0″ Guard who had 10 points per game but since he has two seasons of eligibility left he should get a lot of Mid-Major interest and maybe some lower high major offers.
