CLARKSVILLE, TN — The 2017-18 season is just around the corner, and teams are putting the final touches on their rosters.

Several teams have assembled their squads for this season, and are currently on international exhibition tours to try and get their players on the same page in advance of the year. Others are still at home, looking for that final piece to the puzzle that could lead them to a conference title and/or a post-season berth.

The transfer market has thinned out considerably, but there are still some intriguing players available who can either help immediately or in 2018-19.

On Saturday afternoon, another player came off the table, and one of America’s favourite teams from the 2016 NCAA Tournament picked up some forward depth as they look to push for an Ohio Valley Conference title in 2017-18.

The Austin Peay Governors added transfer forward Averyl Ugba, who is immediately eligible for the 2017-18 season. Continue reading Austin Peay adds late commitment from Grambling State transfer Averyl Ugba

COLUMBIA, SC. — After missing out on another graduate transfer guard, who committed to a fellow SEC school, head coach Frank Martin and the South Carolina Gamecocks completed their 2017-18 roster on Wednesday by adding another talented piece to the back court.

The Gamecocks were recruiting Randy Onwuasor, who transferred from the Southern Utah Thunderbirds after averaging 23.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest. After Onwuasor committed to Will Wade and the LSU Tigers, Martin turned his attention to another graduate transfer guard.

Enter Wesley Myers, who led the Maine Black Bears in scoring in his first season with the program. After some off-court issues which resulted in Myers being kicked off the team at Maine, he was searching for a new home for his final year of eligibility.

On Wednesday, the 6’2” guard from Brooklyn, NY announced he was committing to the Gamecocks, adding some more depth to the back court. Continue reading Maine graduate transfer Wesley Myers commits to South Carolina

Stetson transfer Grant Lozoya commits to Pittsburg State

On Saturday, Grant Lozoya became the third player with Division I experience to transfer to Pittsburg State this off-season.

PITTSBURG, Ks. — While over 750 players have transferred at the Division I level this off-season, there are a high number of players who are transferring to Division II, JUCO, and other levels across the country.

The likes of the Cal Baptist Lancers and Angelo State Rams have left their mark on the transfer market, landing several players with Division I experience to their respective rosters for next season. Players are looking for the best fit for themselves, both in terms of athletics and academics, and the Division I level may not be the ideal spot at the time.

AMES, Iowa — The likes of the Nevada Wolfpack and the Kansas Jayhawks have left their mark on the transfer market this season, and have both been referred to as ‘Transfer U‘ by their respective fan bases.

For the 2017-18 season, the Cyclones had already added a trio of experienced players to their roster. Marial ShayokJeff Beverly, and Hans Brase have all committed to Steve Prohm and Iowa State. The trio will look to help a younger Iowa State team contend in the Big 12.
