SARNIA, Ont. — With the Villanova Wildcats having won the 2018 National Championship, the 2017-18 season is officially in the books.
With that, it’s time to look ahead to the 2018-19 season, and what a season it’s shaping up to be. Yes, it’s only April, but all signs are pointing to yet another exciting college basketball campaign.
Several high-profile stars have graduated from college, while a plethora of others have declared for the 2018 NBA Draft early and have signed with an agent. To make a long story short, the rosters for the 2018-19 season will look considerably different.
With all of the roster changes come a slew of transfer players who have been waiting in the wings, chomping at the bit to leave their mark with their new teams this season. With such a long list of talented players, it was tough to pick just five players who are in prime position to leave a mark this season.
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — College basketball is an ever-changing game.
Each season, it seems as though more and more players are looking to transfer to a new program. This year’s list is approaching the 600-mark, and names are still being added to the list with each passing day. Players transfer for varying reasons, most of which we will never truly know why.
With that being said, there are always big name transfers who hit the open market. This season, the likes of Marcus Evans, Dedric Lawson, Khris Lane, and Chase Jeter have all been looking for new homes, among others.
While the big name transfers get the bulk of the attention, many impact transfers fly under the radar. One of those names on this year’s transfer list is guard Marcus DeBerry. After two seasons with the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks, the 6’5” guard opted to transfer for his final two seasons of eligibility.
