Ranking the Top Transfers in College Basketball in 2014-15

Every year the talent pool gets a little deeper when it comes to transfers. 

It’s an easier way to reload or rebuild, because transfers have experience and there’s less of an unknown as to what you’re going to get. 

In fact, it used to be that a majority of transfers either left because they weren’t getting minutes or transferred up from a smaller school to a bigger program. Nine of the 10 players on this list played for well-known programs—mostly major conferences—and all had significant roles at their previous stop. It’s getting scarily like free agency.

With so many quality options, I could easily stretch this list to the top 50. You’ll see some of the honorable mentions end up on All-League teams.

These 10 project to make the biggest impact. 

 

Honorable Mention (Previous school in parentheses): Justin Edwards, K-State (Maine); Anthony Lee, Ohio State (Temple); Katin Reinhardt, USC (UNLV); Antoine Mason, Auburn (Niagara); Ricky Tarrant, Alabama (Tulane); Trey Zeigler, TCU (Pittsburgh); M.J. Rhett, Ole Miss (Tennessee State); Remy Abell, Xavier (Indiana); Aaron Cosby, Illinois (Seton Hall); Jalen Jones, Texas A&M (SMU); Anthony Hickey, Oklahoma State (LSU); Jon Octeus, Purdue (Colorado State).
