SEATTLE, Wash. — The off-season following the 2016-17 season has seen a number of programs leave their mark on the transfer market.
The first programs that come to mind are power conference programs. Both the Kansas Jayhawks and the Arizona State Sun Devils have picked up key additions that will help their respective programs in the 2018-19 season.
Then, there’s the Nevada Wolfpack, who are big players in terms of transfers year in and year out. Eric Musselman has done a tremendous job making Nevada a desirable place to play for both incoming recruits and transfer players from across the country.
However, there’s one team in particular who has added a slew of talented players this off-season, but don’t have the national attention to match.
CALGARY, Alta. — With each passing day, the list of players transferring continues to grow.
The list of transfer players is on the cusp of the 500-mark, and will only increase as the off-season moves along. While players are still making their decisions on whether or not to transfer, several big names have already committed to their future homes.
Marcus Evans and Egor Koulechov, the highly-touted guard duo from the Rice Owls, have both found their respective homes for the remainder of their collegiate careers. Evans followed Coach Rhoades and committed to the VCU Rams, while Koulechov committed to the Florida Gators for next season.
Also, Kerem Kanter committed to play for the Xavier Musketeers next season, is he opts to remove his name from the 2017 NBA Draft and return to school as a graduate transfer.
With that being said, there’s still a ton of talent on the market right now. The talent pool will likely continue to improve as the off-season moves along and new players look for their next home.
