Ranking men’s college basketball’s top transfers: Countdown to NBA deadline draws nearer


If you thought last spring’s transfer portal was overwhelming, this spring likely hasn’t improved matters. The roster changes have continued at a furious pace.

The one-time transfer waiver remains in effect, and a number of additional factors have led to a similar number of men’s basketball names in the portal this spring to the 1,832 that went in for the 2020-21 academic year. Programs must get back to the 13-scholarship limit after being allowed to exceed it for 2021-22 thanks to the extra year of NCAA eligibility, meaning rosters will need to be reduced for many programs. Also, because of COVID-19 protocols, the majority of last year’s freshmen were on campuses they never even visited before arriving in the summer or fall — another factor that led to attrition.

There are two potential reasons the current pace is slightly behind the record-setting numbers last spring. First, everyone received a waiver to transfer last spring. Two-time transfers will now need to apply for a waiver, and while there wasn’t a lot of optimism those would be approved, several two-time transfers have already been cleared to play next season. The deadline to enter the portal and still be eligible for next season was May 1, so we likely won’t see players entering the portal in July as they did during the previous cycle.

With that May 1 deadline now behind us, the focus has turned to the June 1 NBA draft early-entry withdrawal deadline. Players with remaining college eligibility need to remove their names from the draft pool by June 1 in order to play next season — and we’ve already seen a few transfers (Kenneth Lofton Jr., Teddy Allen) opt to stay in the draft. But the next wave will come in a week, when the likes of Malachi Smith, Pete Nance, Josh Minott and others will need to make a decision on their draft futures.

Updated May 27, 2022. Will be updated regularly.

1. Kendric Davis, 5-11, 180 lbs., PG, Sr., SMU
Committed to Memphis
Davis became the No. 1 transfer the moment he entered the portal, and will remain in the American. The AAC Player of the Year, Davis averaged 19.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and shot 37.2% from 3-point range for the Mustangs in 2021-22. He originally began his career at TCU.

2. Nijel Pack, 6-0, 180 lbs., PG, Soph., Kansas State
Committed to Miami
A first-team All-Big 12 selection this past season, Pack averaged 17.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists, while shooting 43.6% from 3-point range. He’s an Indianapolis native, leading some to believe Purdue was the favorite, but he ended up in Coral Gables.

3. Tyrese Hunter, 6-0, 178 lbs., PG, Fr., Iowa State

One of the best freshman point guards in the country last season, Hunter is a terrific defender who averaged 11.0 points, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals. Outside shot is a work in progress.

4. Baylor Scheierman, 6-6, 205 lbs., SG, Soph., South Dakota State
Committed to Creighton
Arguably the best NBA prospect in the portal, Scheierman won Summit League Player of the Year honors after averaging 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists, shooting 46.9% from 3-point range. Has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will play in the Big East next season.

5. AJ Green, 6-4, 190 lbs., SG, Jr., Northern Iowa

Two-time Missouri Valley Player of the Year. Green is an elite shooter and scorer who averaged nearly 18 points in four years with the Panthers. Father is an assistant at Iowa State.

6. Malachi Smith, 6-4, 205 lbs., G, Soph., Chattanooga

The Southern Conference Player of the Year, Smith averaged 19.9 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists. Led the Mocs to the NCAA tournament and a near upset of Illinois in the first round.

7. Isiaih Mosley, 6-5, 194 lbs., G, Jr., Missouri State

One of the most explosive scorers in the portal, Mosley shot better than 50% from the field, 40% from 3 and 90% from the free throw line. Averaged 20.4 points and 6.2 boards last season, 19.8 points and 6.3 rebounds the season prior. Went for 40-plus against both Loyola Chicago and Northern Iowa.

8. Pete Nance, 6-10, 225 lbs., PF, Sr., Northwestern

Nance is focused on the NBA draft, but he checks a lot of boxes for teams in need of a frontcourt player. He’s 6-10, but shot 45.2% from 3 last season, averaging 14.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists.

9. Kevin McCullar, 6-6, 210 lbs., SG, Jr., Texas Tech
Committed to Kansas
An elite defender, McCullar also averaged double figures in scoring each of the past two seasons. Put up 10.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 2021-22. Also exploring his NBA possibilities.

10. KJ Williams, 6-10, 245 lbs., PF, Jr., Murray State
Committed to LSU
Williams didn’t plan to dive into his recruitment until the NBA draft process played out, but he ended his recruitment in early May and followed former head coach Matt McMahon to Baton Rouge. The Ohio Valley Player of the Year averaged 18.0 points and 8.4 rebounds.

11. Johni Broome, 6-10, 235 lbs., C, Fr., Morehead State
Committed to Auburn
Broome has been a dominant force for two seasons, earning first-team All-OVC honors each of the past two seasons. Averaged 16.8 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.9 blocks this past season, going for 32 points and eight boards against Murray State in the OVC title game.

12. Norchad Omier, 6-7, 232 lbs., PF, Fr., Arkansas State
Committed to Miami
The Sun Belt Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, Omier was simply dominant this past season. Averaged 17.9 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.6 steals. Omier, who is from Nicaragua, shot better than 63% from the field.

13. Mark Sears, 6-1, 185 lbs., PG, Soph., Ohio
Committed to Alabama
Sears entering the portal and going to Alabama wasn’t an overly well-kept secret over the last couple weeks, as Sears is heading back home next season. The first-team All-MAC pick averaged 19.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists and shot 40.8% from 3.

14. Terrence Shannon Jr., 6-6, 215 lbs., SF, Jr., Texas Tech
Committed to Illinois
Shannon never quite got going this season after being suspended to start the campaign and then dealing with nagging injuries. But he put up numbers when healthy and has a track record of production in college that should translate in Champaign. Averaged 10.4 points.

15. Osun Osunniyi, 6-10, 220 lbs., C, Sr., Saint Bonaventure
Committed to Iowa State
Osunniyi was a two-time Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year and also earned second-team all-conference honors the past two seasons. Averaged 11.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.9 blocks.

16. David Jones, 6-6, 195 lbs., F, Soph., DePaul
Committed to St. John’s
An intriguing entry to the portal before committing to St. John’s, Jones is a versatile player who averaged 14.5 points and 7.4 rebounds his past season. Had 33 and 14 against Louisville and a 22-14-10 triple-double against Georgetown.

17. Josh Minott, 6-8, 205 lbs., F, Fr., Memphis

A legitimate NBA prospect, Minott averaged just 6.6 points and 3.8 rebounds last season, as he couldn’t carve out a consistent role — despite producing when called upon. Had a three-game stretch in the middle of conference play when he averaged 15.7 points and 8.0 rebounds.

18. Brandon Murray, 6-5, 214 lbs., SG, Fr., LSU
Committed to Georgetown
His numbers wouldn’t usually indicate one of the top 25 transfers this spring, but Murray is long, explosive and has only been in college for one season, so there’s a high ceiling. Makes plays at both ends of the floor. Averaged 10.0 points and 3.0 rebounds, also making 40 3s.

19. Kyle Lofton, 6-3, 185 lbs., PG, Sr., Saint Bonaventure
Committed to Florida
One of the best point guards in the country the past four years, Lofton averaged 13.9 points and 5.2 assists over his four seasons with the Bonnies. Three-time All-Atlantic 10 selection.

20. Trevon Brazile, 6-9, 215 lbs., PF, Fr., Missouri
Committed to Arkansas
If there’s one player in the rankings whose hype has been growing consistently, it’s Brazile. Averaged just 6.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks but put up 10.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in his final five games to finish the season. Pro potential.

21. Tristen Newton, 6-5, 190 lbs., PG, Soph., East Carolina
Committed to UConn
Newton was on a below-average East Carolina team, but made a name for himself with his playmaking ability. Earned second-team All-AAC honors. Averaged 17.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists this season.

22. Fardaws Aimaq, 6-11, 245 lbs., C, Jr., Utah Valley

23. Andre Curbelo, 6-1, 175 lbs., PG, Soph., Illinois
Committed to St. John’s
Has one of the highest ceilings of anyone in the portal, but there’s also a clear floor. Curbelo was fantastic coming off the bench as a freshman, leading to a ton of preseason hype. But he dealt with concussion issues and then simply wasn’t effective on the floor. Averaged 7.5 points and 3.2 assists.

24. Jahmir Young, 6-1, 185 lbs., PG, Jr., Charlotte
Committed to Maryland
A noteworthy addition to the portal on Thursday, Young was a first-team All-Conference USA selection this past season after averaging 19.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Born in Maryland, he had a host of high-majors in pursuit before landing in College Park.

25. Will Richard, 6-5, 195 lbs., SG, Fr., Belmont
Committed to Florida
After a stellar freshman season for Belmont, Richard had no shortage of suitors before committing to the Gators. He averaged 12.1 points and 6.0 rebounds on the season but finished really strong, averaging 14.8 points and shooting 37.5% from 3 in his last five.

26. Courtney Ramey, 6-3, 185 lbs., G, Sr., Texas

Likely has one of the highest floors of anyone in the portal. Started at least 20 games in all four of his seasons at Texas, playing under different styles and in different roles. Career 10.0-point-per-game scorer, shot 36.5% from 3 in four seasons.

27. Tanner Holden, 6-6, 185 lbs., SG, Jr., Wright State
Committed to Ohio State
Holden was a first-team All-Horizon League selection after averaging 20.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists. Should be a versatile player for Chris Holtmann in Columbus after the departure of EJ Liddell.

28. Manny Bates, 6-11, 230 lbs., C, Jr., NC State
Committed to Butler
Played just one game last season after suffering a shoulder injury one minute into the opener, but Bates is one of the best defensive players in the country. Averaged 2.7 blocks in 2020-21 and 2.9 in 2019-20, while also putting up 9.8 points and 5.9 boards.

29. Patrick Baldwin Jr., 6-9, 220 lbs., F, Fr., Milwaukee

Considered an elite prospect in the 2021 class, Baldwin struggled with injuries during his lone season playing for his father at Milwaukee. Still expected to remain in the NBA draft. Averaged 12.1 points and 5.8 rebounds.

30. Matthew Mayer, 6-9, 225 lbs., F, Sr., Baylor

Mayer was a spark off the bench for Baylor’s title-winning team in 2020-21, but didn’t have that same impact in 2021-22 despite increased minutes. Averaged 9.8 points and 5.0 rebounds, still has size and shooting ability.

31. Umoja Gibson, 6-1, 169 lbs., SG, Sr., Oklahoma
Committed to DePaul
A consistent offensive player throughout his college career, Gibson averaged 13.3 points this past season. Shot 39.6% from 3-point range over the course of 128 college games at North Texas and Oklahoma.

32. Emoni Bates, 6-9, 190 lbs., SF, Fr., Memphis

Once the No. 1 recruit in high school basketball, Bates had a frustrating first season with the Tigers. He played in just 18 games due to a back injury, and averaged 9.7 points on 38.6% shooting.

33. Keion Brooks Jr., 6-7, 210 lbs., F, Jr., Kentucky

Started every game for Kentucky last season, but had his ups and downs during his three years in Lexington. Averaged 10.8 points and 4.4 rebounds, including a 27-point, eight-rebound effort at Kansas.

34. Efe Abogidi, 6-10, 225 lbs., PF, Soph., Washington State

The Nigeria native has a high ceiling and was very productive on a per-minute basis in Pullman. Averaged 8.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in just under 21 minutes per game.

35. Dawson Garcia, 6-11, 235 lbs., PF, Soph., North Carolina
Committed to Minnesota
A sought-after transfer last summer, Garcia left the Tar Heels midseason to go back home and deal with family health issues. He never returned to Chapel Hill, and will remain in his home state with the Golden Gophers. He averaged 9.0 points for the Tar Heels.

36. Ricky Council IV, 6-6, 205 lbs., SG, Fr., Wichita State
Committed to Arkansas
The North Carolina native saw his shooting numbers take a dip during his second season but improved nearly everything else. Averaged 12.0 points and 5.4 rebounds.

37. Jake Stephens, 6-11, 266 lbs., C, Sr., VMI
Committed to Chattanooga
Stephens is an elite 3-point shooter in addition to his 6-foot-11 size, making 49% of his 3s on five attempts per game. Also averaged 19.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists. First-team All-SoCon player who stayed in the conference and moved with his coach, ex-VMI leader Dan Earl.

38. Noah Carter, 6-6, 229 lbs., SF, Soph., Northern Iowa
Committed to Missouri
Carter was a second-team All-MVC selection after averaging 15.0 points and 4.1 rebounds. Had a long list of high-majors in the mix before landing in Columbia, given his ability to distribute, get to the free-throw line and finish at the rim. Streaky shooter.

39. Grant Sherfield, 6-2, 189 lbs., Jr., Nevada
Committed to Oklahoma
After playing one season at Wichita State, Sherfield went to Nevada and proceeded to put up huge numbers in two seasons in the Mountain West: 19.1 points and 6.4 assists in 2021-22, 18.6 points and 6.1 assists in 2020-21.

40. Antonio Reeves, 6-6, 185 lbs., SG, Jr., Illinois State

41. Terry Roberts, 6-3, 180 lbs., G, Jr., Bradley
Committed to Georgia
Roberts feels underrated from a national perspective. He was a first-team All-Missouri Valley pick and won Newcomer of the Year honors in the league. Averaged 14.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists and shot 34.5% from 3.

42. Jalen Graham, 6-9, 220 lbs., PF, Jr., Arizona State
Committed to Arkansas
Graham was the fourth frontcourt transfer to commit to Arkansas, and he’ll contribute immediately. After sporadic production for the first half of the season, Graham figured it out down the stretch. Averaged 13.0 points and 5.5 rebounds over his final 18 games, shooting better than 50% from the field.

43. Ben Vander Plas, 6-8, 232 lbs., PF, Sr., Ohio
Committed to Virginia
A skilled forward from Wisconsin, Vander Plas has been one of the best players in the MAC the last three years. Averaged 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists this past season, joining teammate Mark Sears on the All-MAC first team.

44. Jalen Bridges, 6-7, 225 lbs., F, Soph., West Virginia
Committed to Baylor
The numbers don’t jump off the page, but the former ESPN 100 recruit has shown flashes during his two seasons in Morgantown. Averaged 8.4 points and 4.8 rebounds last season, but had 22 points against Oklahoma State, 18 against Texas and 16 against Texas Tech.

45. Jaren Holmes, 6-4, 210 lbs., SG, Sr., Saint Bonaventure
Committed to Iowa State
One of the more consistent players in the Atlantic 10 the past few seasons, Holmes averaged 13.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 2021-22.

46. Souley Boum, 6-3, 165 lbs., SG, Jr., UTEP
Committed to Xavier
Boum also entered the NBA draft, but he’s not projected to be selected. He was a first-team All-Conference USA pick after putting up 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists and shooting 36.8% from 3.

47. Femi Odukale, 6-5, 185 lbs., PG, Soph., Pittsburgh
Committed to Seton Hall
Not overly efficient shooting the ball this past season, but Odukale has good size and playmaking ability from the guard position. Averaged 10.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists. Capable defender.

48. Mouhamed Gueye, 6-11, 210 lbs., PF, Fr., Washington State

An ESPN 100 prospect in 2021, Gueye’s best stretch came in late February, when he averaged 18.0 points and 5.7 rebounds in a three-game stretch. The Senegal-born Gueye averaged 7.4 points and 5.2 rebounds on the season.

49. Efton Reid, 6-11, 238 lbs., C, Fr., LSU
Committed to Gonzaga
A former five-star recruit in the 2021 class, Reid didn’t produce consistently at the offensive end as a freshman. Averaged 6.3 points and 4.3 rebounds under Will Wade, but he entered college with a reputation as a skilled post player, so there’s still hope.

50. Devin Carter, 6-3, 188 lbs., G, Fr., South Carolina
Committed to Providence
The freshman from Miami had an impressive season in the SEC, averaging 9.0 points in just 18.7 minutes. Was capable of big performances, including 21 points against Georgia, 20 against Arkansas and 22 against Army.

51. Xavier Pinson, 6-2, 154 lbs., PG, Sr., LSU
Committed to New Mexico State
Pinson’s offensive exploits are well-known in the SEC, after three seasons at Missouri and one at LSU. Started 53 games over the last two seasons and averaged 10.2 points over his entire career. Confident shotmaker who can also pass — averaged 9.8 points and 4.8 assists last season.

52. Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, 6-10, 246 lbs., PF, Fr., Tennessee
Committed to Louisville
A former five-star recruit, Huntley-Hatfield started 13 games as a freshman in Knoxville. He showed flashes, including 10 points against Mississippi State in the SEC tournament.

53. Bryce Hopkins, 6-6, 220 lbs., SF, Fr., Kentucky
Committed to Providence
Hopkins was ranked No. 33 in the 2021 class, but barely played the second half of his freshman season. There was one exception: a 13-point, four-rebound effort against LSU in late February.

54. Dominick Welch, 6-5, 205 lbs., SG, Sr., Saint Bonaventure
Committed to Alabama
A very solid two-way player for the Bonnies, Welch averaged double figures each of the past three seasons, making shots from the perimeter and proving himself as a versatile defender. Averaged 12.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and shot 37.4% from 3.

55. Nahiem Alleyne, 6-4, 185 lbs., SG, Jr., Virginia Tech
Committed to UConn
Alleyne was one of the top pure shooters in the portal, and generated plenty of interest before landing in Storrs. Shot 37.3% from 3 this past season but made more than 40% of his outside shots in the 2020-21 season.

56. Sean McNeil, 6-3, 205 lbs., SG, Sr., West Virginia
Committed to Ohio State
McNeil has started 55 games over the last two seasons for Bob Huggins’ program, establishing himself as a consistent perimeter threat. Averaged 12.1 points and shot 36.8% from 3 this past season. He’s ranked as a top-10 3-point shooter in the Big 12 each of the last two seasons.

57. Tyreke Key, 6-3, 205 lbs., SG, Sr., Indiana State
Committed to Tennessee
Key missed the entire season after undergoing shoulder surgery, but he has three years of big-time production to fall back on. He averaged 17.4 points in 2018-19, 15.6 in 2019-20 and 17.2 in 2020-21. Career 37.4% 3-point shooter.

58. Alex Fudge, 6-8, 185 lbs., PF, Fr., LSU
Committed to Florida
The numbers don’t love him, but coaches do. A former ESPN 100 prospect, Fudge played fewer than 14 minutes per game as a freshman and barely got off the bench late in the season, but there’s potential here, and high-majors lined up before Fudge landed in Gainesville.

59. Elijah Harkless, 6-3, 194 lbs., SG, Sr., Oklahoma
Committed to UNLV
Harkless spent the last two seasons in Norman after beginning his career at Cal State Northridge. He started 40 games for the Sooners, contributing in a variety of ways and averaging 10.0 points this past season.

60. Eric Gaines, 6-2, 150 lbs., PG, Soph., LSU
Committed to UAB
Gaines is only listed at 150 pounds, but he’s got good length and explosiveness — and is a great defender. Averaged 9.0 points, 2.9 assists and 2.1 steals.

61. Isaac Likekele, 6-5, 215 lbs., PG, Sr., Oklahoma State
Committed to Ohio State
Likekele started 110 games in four years in Stillwater, but is now in the portal. Physical guard averaged 8.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists over the course of his Oklahoma State career.

63. De’Vion Harmon, 6-2, 198 lbs., G, Jr., Oregon
Committed to Texas Tech
Harmon had two very solid seasons at Oklahoma before transferring to Oregon and averaging 10.8 points and shooting 36.7% from 3. Can play on or off the ball.

64. Jermaine Couisnard, 6-4, 211 lbs., SG, Jr., South Carolina
Committed to Oregon
The 6-foot-4 Couisnard finished the season on a tear, scoring 33 points against LSU on Feb. 19 and going for 22 points against both Mississippi State and Auburn. Averaged 12.0 points and 3.2 assists on the season.

65. KC Ndefo, 6-7, 195 lbs., PF, Sr., Saint Peter’s

Despite his 6-foot-7 size, Ndefo is one of the best frontcourt defensive players at the mid-major level. Averaged 2.8 blocks this past season after 3.6 per game in 2020-21. Also put up 10.5 points and 6.1 rebounds.

66. Landers Nolley II, 6-7, 208 lbs., SG, Jr., Memphis
Committed to Cincinnati
Nolley had a huge freshman season at Virginia Tech, but hasn’t quite reached those heights during his two seasons at Memphis. Averaged 9.8 points last season. Still a very good outside shooter with size.

67. Emmanuel Akot, 6-8, 210 lbs., SF, Sr., Boise State

Akot has been considered a skilled playmaker with size since his high school days, but he finally put it all together this past season at Boise State. Started 29 games, averaged 10.6 points, 2.8 assists and shot a career-best 38.7% from 3.

68. Justice Hill, 6-0, 170 lbs., PG, Soph., Murray State
Committed to LSU
Matt McMahon will hope Hill picks up where he left off at Murray State, and he should have the keys to the offense from Day 1. First-team All-OVC selection, averaged 13.4 points, 5.1 assists and shot 35.8% from 3.

69. Michael Jones, 6-5, 210 lbs., SG, Jr., Davidson
Committed to Stanford
One of the best shooters in the portal, Jones started 33 games for a 27-win Davidson team, averaging 11.8 points and 3.6 rebounds and shooting 42.1% from 3-point range. Had 29 points and eight 3s in a January game against Richmond.

70. Jarkel Joiner, 6-1, 180 lbs., SG, Sr., Ole Miss
Committed to NC State

71. Jarod Lucas, 6-4, 195 lbs., SG, Jr., Oregon State
Committed to Nevada
One of the few bright spots on a 3-28 Oregon State team, Lucas was one of the more efficient scorers in the Pac-12. Averaged 13.5 points and shot 38.6% from 3-point range this past season, and had five games of 20-plus points.

72. Andre Kelly, 6-9, 255 lbs., PF, Sr., California
Committed to UC Santa Barbara
Given his experience and past production, there’s a chance Kelly dominates the Big West next season. He averaged 13.4 points and 8.4 rebounds this past season, shooting better than 60% from the field.

73. D.J. Burns Jr., 6-9, 275 lbs., C, Jr., Winthrop
Committed to NC State
One of the more efficient big men in the country, Burns averaged 15.0 points and 4.5 rebounds despite playing just over 20 minutes per game. Shot nearly 63% from the field.

74. Cam Spencer, 6-4, 207 lbs., SG, Jr., Loyola Maryland
Committed to Rutgers
The younger brother of former Loyola-to-Northwestern and lacrosse-to-basketball transfer Pat Spencer, Cam Spencer was a first-team All-Patriot selection after averaging 18.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists. Career 38.8% 3-point shooter.

75. Ali Ali, 6-8, 196 lbs., SF, Soph., Akron
Committed to Butler
A second-team All-MAC pick, Ali had a terrific season shooting the ball, making better than 40% of his 3-point attempts. Also averaged 13.9 points and 2.6 assists. Went for 17 against Ohio State in the season opener.

76. Desmond Cambridge Jr., 6-4, 180 lbs., SG, Sr., Nevada
Committed to Arizona State
Cambridge and his brother, Devan, committed to the Sun Devils, and Bobby Hurley will likely let Desmond Cambridge do what he does best: score. The third-team All-Mountain West selection averaged 16.2 points and shot 37% from 3.

77. D’Moi Hodge, 6-4, 180 lbs., SG, Sr., Cleveland State
Committed to Missouri
The best player on a team that won its second straight regular-season title, Hodge averaged 15.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.2 steals this past season. He earned first-team All-Horizon League honors. Follows coach Dennis Gates from Cleveland State to Mizzou.

78. Jaylon Tyson, 6-7, 210 lbs., SF, Fr., Texas
Committed to Texas Tech
A former top-35 recruit in the 2021 class, Tyson played just eight games at Texas before leaving. He originally committed to Texas Tech in high school before following Chris Beard to Austin.

79. Noah Williams, 6-5, 195 lbs., SG, Jr., Washington State
Committed to Washington
Williams had a huge sophomore season, averaging 14.1 points — including back-to-back 32-point and 40-point games — but dropped back to 9.5 points and 2.2 assists as a junior. Can get hot from 3-point range.

80. Tre Mitchell, 6-9, 220 lbs., PF, Jr., Texas
Committed to West Virginia
Mitchell was one of the most sought-after transfers in the country last season after averaging 18.8 points and 7.2 rebounds at UMass. But he played in just 24 games, averaging 8.7 points, at Texas before leaving the program.

81. Keyontae Johnson, 6-5, 229 lbs., SF, Sr., Florida

Once a projected first-round NBA draft pick and potential SEC Player of the Year, Johnson hasn’t played since collapsing during a December 2020 game. It’s unclear if a school will clear him, and he also has recent off-court issues hanging over him as well.

82. Samuell Williamson, 6-7, 205 lbs., SF, Jr., Louisville
Committed to SMU
Which Sam Williamson will the Mustangs be getting? He was a five-star prospect coming out of high school and had a very good sophomore season (9.6 PPG, 8.1 RPG) but didn’t take the next step as a junior, struggling en route to 5.6 points and 3.7 rebounds.

90. Kendal Coleman, 6-8, 220 lbs., PF, Fr., Northwestern State
Committed to LSU
Averaged 15.4 points and 10.1 rebounds this past season, and despite his size, there shouldn’t be too many concerns about his skills translating — he had huge games against top competition. Nineteen points and six boards against Oklahoma, 20 and seven against SMU, 16 and 13 against future landing spot LSU, 12 and 11 against Texas A&M.

91. Qudus Wahab, 6-11, 240 lbs., C, Jr., Maryland
Committed to Georgetown
Wahab was considered one of the best frontcourt transfers last spring after averaging 12.7 points and 8.2 rebounds at Georgetown. But it didn’t happen for him at Maryland, where he put up just 7.7 points and 5.6 boards, and Wahab has returned to the Hoyas.

92. Earl Timberlake, 6-6, 220 lbs., SF, Soph., Memphis
Committed to Bryant
I was all-in on Timberlake coming out of high school and even after leaving Miami following his freshman season, but he didn’t do much of note at Memphis. Averaged just 4.7 points and 3.4 rebounds for the Tigers.

93. Sam Griesel, 6-6, 220 lbs., SG, Jr., North Dakota State

97. Felipe Haase, 6-9, 253 lbs., PF, Sr., Mercer

Haase, who started his career at South Carolina, is an intriguing target. The 6-foot-9 standout from Chile is a terrific passer and shooter for his size, averaging 3.0 assists and shooting 40.6% from 3 to go along with 14.8 points and 5.6 rebounds.

98. Dylan Penn, 6-3, 190 lbs., PG, Sr., Bellarmine
