NCAA Transfer Portal: Best Basketball Players on the Move in 2022

Boardroom is tracking the best men’s and women’s players seeking and finding new homes for 2022-23. Let’s play Transfer Portal basketball!

With the college basketball offseason upon us, the coaching carousel near a stop, and most 2022 freshmen committed, all eyes are on the transfer portal. As of this writing, there are over a thousand names in the portal for both men’s and women’s basketball, giving coaches at all levels the ability to find players that fill holes on their rosters.

Remember: the NCAA passed the one-time transfer rule last year, meaning you don’t have to worry about whether most of these players are immediately eligible at their new school. Almost every move you hear about over the next few weeks — or months — will have a direct impact on 2022-23.

Here are the biggest names to keep an eye on for this summer in the wide world of transfer portal basketball.
