LEVELLAND, Tex. — Chalk up another Division I transfer for the South Plains College Texans.

Since the 2017-18 season came to a close, close to 750 players have either transferred from a Division I school, or have moved up a level and have committed to a Division I program. With the large number, players are bound to transfer anywhere and everywhere. The majority stay at the top level, while plenty still transfer elsewhere as they look for the best fit for their game and their development.

One program that has done rather well this off-season is South Plains College.

Last season, the Texans had four Division I transfers on their roster, including the ever-talented Jordan Brangers. Year after year, South Plains College is present on the transfer market, and this year has been no different.

Earlier this off-season, they added Jamar Ergas (Washington State Huskies) and Trey Wade (UTEP Miners) to the mix for the 2018-19 season. On Monday, they added another talented player for the upcoming campaign, as guard Jonah Antonio committed to the Texans over other Division I programs.

Chicago, IL – For the first time in Head Coach Mike Brey‘s tenure at Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish opened their basketball season on the road against the DePaul Blue Demons, beating their former Big East opponent, 72-58.

This was the 107th meeting between these two former Big East foes, with Notre Dame leading the all time series, 62-44.

CALGARY, Alta. — What a weekend it was for transfer players all across the country.

Several of the nation’s top transfer players committed to their respective schools. Some will be eligible next season as graduate transfers, while many will sit out a year and be eligible in 2018-19.

Other players, like Kendall Smith and Khris Lane, did the same as graduate transfers, and will look to lead their new programs to the NCAA Tournament next year.

With the shake-ups over the past weekend, several of our top transfer from non-power programs are no longer on the market.
