College basketball has come to an end and now we look ahead to the summer recruiting period and the transfer season. Currently, there are over 600 names in the transfer portal. Let’s take a look at the best transfers available right now.

Nick Honor – Fr. Fordham

Honor tore up the A-10 this year averaging 15.3 points and 3 assists a game. He adds to the recent trend of successful guards to transfer out of Fordham including Joseph Chartouny and Eric Paschall. He should make an impact at a high major school as he scored 30 points against Rutgers.

Rayjon Tucker – R Jr. Little Rock

Tucker is one of the best grad transfers available. He spent his first two years at Florida Gulf Coast then transferred to Little Rock and put up 20 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1 steal a game. He’s a 6″5 athletic wing that can shoot the rock (41.1% 3 point shooter). He can develop into a legit NBA prospect next year if he finds the right fit.

Justin Pierce – Jr. William & Mary

The 6″7 wing stuffed the stat sheet this year at William & Mary. Pierce put up 15 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists a game. Numerous high majors have reached out to him and he is set to take an official visit to Michigan. Pierce will be a grad transfer so he will have a chance to make an immediate impact somewhere.

LJ Figueroa- Fr. St. John’s

Figueroa had a tremendous freshman campaign putting up 14 points and grabbing 6 rebounds a game. He has decided to transfer amid the coaching turbulence at St. John’s. It will be interesting to see whether he decides to stay at the high major level or drop down to mid-major.

Connor Vanover – Fr. Califonia

The 7″3 big man put up 7.5 points and 3 rebounds to go along with 1.3 blocks a game in his first season at Cal. Even at 7″3 he can still shoot the 3 and shot 35% from beyond the arc last season. There is still a chance he stays at Cal due to the coaching change. Vanover could be a major force at the mid-major level if he decides to drop down a level.
