Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Matt Ryan    F    Vanderbilt    
Ryan announced Tuesday that he will transfer to Vanderbilt.

Fantasy Analysis

After seeing inconsistent time off the bench in his sophomore season with the Fighting Irish, Ryan will pursue a larger role at Vanderbilt. He will, however, have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to NCAA transfer rules before playing out his two years of eligibility he has left.
Josh Parrish    G    Rice    
Parrish will transfer to Rice, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Parrish played just four minutes per game in his freshman season at TCU and will transfer to Rice in search of a bigger role. He will, however, have to sit out one season due to NCAA transfer rules.
Elijah Stewart    G    USC    
Stewart will return to USC for his senior season, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

It appears as though Stewart never ended up officially declaring for the draft, so he'll be back for his fourth and final year in a USC uniform. Stewart averaged 12.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 30 minutes per game in his junior season and will be one of the leaders on a Trojans team with high expectations for next year.
Kamau Stokes    G    Kansas State    
Stokes is on the 2017 NBA Draft's early entry list but has not hired an agent, Kellis Robinett of The Wichita Eagle reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Stokes' early entry into the draft went without an official announcement, but it appears as though he will test the NBA waters before making a final decision. He averaged 11.7 points and 4.1 assists per game in his sophomore season, but listed at just six feet tall, the most likely outcome for Stokes is a return to Kansas State for his junior season.
Mustapha Heron    G    Auburn    
Heron announced Tuesday that he will return to Auburn for his sophomore season.

Fantasy Analysis

Heron was one of the best freshmen players in the SEC last season, averaging 15.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while shooting an impressive 42.3 percent from three. He was the Tigers' leading scorer in his debut season with the program, and upon returning, he will be seen as one of the best players in all of the SEC next season.
Joel Berry    G    North Carolina    
Berry will withdraw his name from the 2017 NBA Draft and return to North Carolina for his senior season.

Fantasy Analysis

Just a day after declaring for the draft without hiring an agent, Berry has elected to return to school for his final season of eligibility. Berry averaged 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game while shooting 38 percent from three last season, and will now not only be the Tar Heels' primary option on offense but a potential National Player of the Year candidate as well.
Charlie Moore    G    Kansas    
Moore has committed to transfer to Kansas, Jeff Borzello of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Moore, a Cal transfer, will have to sit out a year before continuing his collegiate eligibility. Moore had a successful freshman season, averaging 12.2 points, 3.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 28.8 minutes per game. He is a fantastic addition to help replace Devonte Graham and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk once they graduate after the 2017-18 season.
Montell McRae    F    Buffalo    
McRae committed to transfer to Buffalo on Tuesday, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

McRae played for South Plains College for two years, averaging 6.0 points in 13.6 minutes per game in 2016-17. He will have to sit out the 2017-18 season before using his remaining eligibility at Buffalo.
Crisshawn Clark    G    Portland    
Clark will transfer to Portland, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After missing the 2016-17 season due to left knee surgery, the sophomore guard has opted to transfer to Portland. He'll continue his rest and rehabilitation with hopes of being cleared to play in the 2017-18 season.
B.J. Johnson    F    La Salle    
Johnson, who declared for the draft without an agent, has opted to return to school for his senior season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As was somewhat expected, Johnson, who was projected to be no more than a late second-round pick, will return to La Salle to hone his skills during his senior year in an effort to improve his draft stock after likely not getting the feedback he wanted from NBA scouts. He finished last season averaging 17.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.0 assists across 32.6 minutes per game.
Jaaron Simmons    G    Michigan    
Simmons will transfer to Michigan and be eligible for the 2017-18 season, the Detroit News reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Simmons was an All-MAC selection last season after averaging 15.9 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds for the Bobcats. The 6-foot-1 guard helped Ohio win 22 conference games over the past two seasons. He should get plenty of playing time with the Wolverines after backcourt starters Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin graduated.
Rob Edwards    G    Arizona State    
Edwards has decided to transfer to Arizona State, Jeff Metcalfe of the Arizona Republic reports.

Fantasy Analysis

During his time at Cleveland State, Edwards filled the role of guard and averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 31.1 minutes per game. This is a great pickup for Arizona State, however since Edwards is still an undergraduate student-athlete, he won't be eligible to play until the 2018-19 season.
Elijah Hughes    F       
Hughes announced on his personal Twitter account that he will transfer from East Carolina.

Fantasy Analysis

Hughes had a sizable role with the Pirates during his freshman campaign, posting averages of 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 20.5 minutes. He did, however, shoot just 27 percent from the three-point line, so he'll clearly need some work in that category once he finds a new team. Look for announcement on Hughes' next landing spot later this summer, but due to the NCAA transfer rules, he'll have to sit out the 2017-18 season before being eligible the following year.
Zylan Cheatham    F    Arizona State    
Cheatham will transfer to Arizona State, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cheatham has spent his first two collegiate seasons with San Diego State and is coming off a sophomore campaign where he averaged 9.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals across 23.4 minutes. The 6-foot-9 big man racked up three double-doubles during that span as well and adds a strong defensive presence as evidenced by his steals numbers. Due to the current NCAA transfer rules, Cheatham will have to sit out the 2017-18 season, but will then be available in 2018-19 with two years of eligibility remaining.
Jevon Carter    G    West Virginia    
Carter will enter the 2017 NBA Draft but not hire an agent.

Fantasy Analysis

In not hiring an agent, Carter will leave his options open, and unless he gets great feedback after testing the NBA waters, a return to school for his senior year is the most likely outcome. The point guard is, however, coming off a breakout season with West Virginia, averaging career highs across the board, posting 13.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He'll have until May 24th to make a final decision.
