Transfer season is in full swing. The full list is nearing 500 names, and more players are being added every day. All offseason long, we’ll be tracking transfers in basketball’s power conferences.
Recruitment of transfers are heating up, too. We’ve already seen Dedric and K.J. Lawson commit to Kansas; mid-major stars Marcus Evans (Rice to VCU), Michael Weathers (Miami Ohio to Oklahoma State), Kerem Kanter (Green Bay to Xavier) move up a level; and high-majors add key graduate transfers with Rice’s Egor Koulechov going to Florida.
Who are the 10 best transfers on the market? And which players are coming or going from your school?
Top available transfers
1. Charlie Moore, Fr., PG, California Golden Bears: Moore left Berkeley and immediately became one of the most sought-after players available. The former ESPN 100 prospect averaged 12.5 points as a freshman, and is looking to make a move back home to Chicago. Keep an eye on Illinois and Kansas.
2. Elijah Brown, RS Jr., SG, New Mexico Lobos (graduate): Brown put up big numbers at New Mexico, averaging 18.8 points and 5.2 rebounds, but decided to play his final season elsewhere. He already visited Oregon and Northwestern, and is also considering Iowa State, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s.
3. Cameron Johnson, RS Jr., SF, Pittsburgh Panthers (graduate): Much of the intrigue with Johnson comes from his shooting ability (41.5 percent from 3-point range) and the fact he has two years of eligibility but can play right away (because of the redshirt year). Kentucky, Florida, Michigan, Oregon and others are involved.
4. Noah Dickerson, So., PF, Washington Huskies: Dickerson asked for his release shortly after Mike Hopkins came aboard, and he has said he’s open to going back to Washington. But he already visited Virginia and plans to visit Miami soon. Baylor, Georgia Tech and Duke are on the list.
5. Carlton Bragg Jr., So., PF, Kansas Jayhawks: Bragg had multiple issues this past season with the Jayhawks, including a three-game suspension during Big 12 play. He’s a former five-star prospect, though, and Arizona State, Xavier, Illinois, NC State and Cincinnati are in the mix.
6. Mark Alstork, RS Jr., SG, Wright State Raiders: The 6-foot-5 Ohio native averaged 19.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists last season and has numerous high-major suitors. Georgetown recently reached out. Tennessee went to see him. Michigan assistant Billy Donlon coached him at Wright State.
