If you bet on college basketball, you might be interest in the top 10 available college basketball transfers.
Derryck Thornton, Duke Blue Devils. A former five-star recruit, Thornton reclassified last spring so as to be able to enroll at Duke a year early. He played more than 26 minutes per game, but couldn’t secure the starting point guard role and would have also had to compete with five-star freshman Frank Jackson next season. He may look at schools out west.
Kory Holden, Delaware Blue Hens. A second-team all-CAA member last season with an average 17.7 points and 4.2 assists for a scratching-and-clawing Delaware team. Kansas, Baylor, Virginia Tech, South Carolina and Seton Hall are the final five schools for the skilled Holden.
Canyon Barry, Charleston Cougars. Among the top scorers in the country for the first half of the season, Barry missed more than two months in the final stretch as a result of a shoulder injury. He averaged 19.7 points during his last season at Charleston. Eligible immediately.
Daniel Giddens, Ohio State Buckeyes. Giddens didn’t put up big numbers as a freshman at Ohio State, but he’s tall and strong, and you can’t teach that. He will be able to offer rebounding and defense anywhere he goes, and it’s not like he’s going to be short on options. At 6-foot-10, he’s not short on anything.
Rodney Pryor, Robert Morris Colonials. It hasn’t taken too long a time for Pryor’s recruitment to pick up. He has already scheduled visits to Georgetown, Florida and Gonzaga, while Kansas has started to show interest in the productive wing. Pryor had an average of 18.0 points and 8.0 rebounds for Robert Morris this last season.
Caleb Martin, NC State Wolfpack. Caleb and his brother Cody are both leaving NC State. Caleb was the more productive of the two siblings for the Wolfpack, averaging 11.5 points and 4.7 rebounds last season, while Cody put up 6.0 points and 4.4 rebounds.
Grant Mullins, Columbia Lions. Mullins had an average of 13.3 points and 3.3 assists for a Columbia team that won 25 games and took home the CIT title. Michigan, Cal, Syracuse and Hawaii have already contacted the 6-4 guard, and his list of wooers could still grow larger.
Anthony Livingston, Arkansas State Red Wolves. Livingston has put up almost 16 points and 10 rebounds over each of the previous couple of seasons, and is one of the most productive big men on the market. He’s eligible immediately, and has quite a few high-major schools after him.
Justin Simon, Arizona Wildcats. The former top 50 player hardly played as a freshman at Arizona. He’s looking at St. John’s, and has also visited Oklahoma State. While he may have been overestimated coming out of high school by online wagering experts, Simon is a guy who can definitely contribute to a program as long as he doesn’t caught between positions.
Jalen Hudson, Virginia Tech Hokies. The sophomore wing almost averaged double-figures last season though he only played about 20 minutes per game. He’s attracting the attention of a slew of high-majors.
