Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Frankie Hughes    G    Duquesne    
Hughes will transfer from Missouri to Duquesne, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Fantasy Analysis

There's still no confirmation on the reason for this departure after one season; nevertheless, Hughes will be taking his talents out east. Averaging 7.6 PPG his freshman year, he'll be looked upon for an even higher contribution once he's eligible to play again -- which will likely be the 2018-19 due to NCAA transfer rules.
Damien Jefferson    F    Creighton    
Jefferson has committed to transfer to Creighton, Geoff Grammar of the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jefferson averaged 5.3 point and 2.3 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game last season for the Lobos. He'll likely need to sit out for one season due to NCAA transfer rules before resuming his three remaining seasons of eligibility.
Ran Tut    F       
Tut will not return to the South Carolina basketball team for the upcoming season, David Caraviello of the Charleston Post & Courier reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Tut saw the floor in just 12 games for South Carolina last season, averaging 1.0 point and 1.3 boards across 5.1 minutes per game. The reason for his departure is unknown, though if his numbers are any indication, he may want to pursue another program in hopes of a more significant role.
D.J. Williams    G       
Williams will transfer to George Washington from Illinois, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Williams, who saw just 8.8 minutes per game last year during his sophomore season at Illinois, has opted to transfer to George Washington. The move will likely result in him receiving a bigger role, though he'll have to wait until 2018-19 to touch the court for his new team due to NCAA transfer rules.
Kevin Knox    F    Kentucky    
Knox tweaked his hamstring during the U19 Team practice and withdraws from the team, coach John Calipari announced on Twitter.

Fantasy Analysis

According to Calipari, Knox had been playing well, but came to the decision that preparing for next season is a bigger priority, and will not push himself of the hampered hamstring. It seems as though he will be fine heading into this season with the Wildcats, but the team will likely update his status in the coming months.
Antonio Green    G    Middle Tennessee St.    
Green will transfer from Texas-Rio Grande Valley to Middle Tennessee, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Green had an impressive sophomore campaign with Texas-Rio Grande Valley, averaging 16.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 30.4 minutes per game. He went 39 percent from the field and 37 percent from deep, so he should offer Middle Tennessee another proven scorer that can hit shots from all over the floor. Due to the current NCAA transfer rules, Green will have to sit out the upcoming season before being eligible at the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
Troy Baxter Jr.    F    Florida Gulf Coast    
Baxter has committed to transfer to Florida Gulf Coast, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Baxter will have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to NCAA transfer rules, after which he will have three years of eligibility remaining. At UNLV, the freshman forward averaged 4.3 points per game, but missed several games due to a nagging groin injury.
Kavell Bigby-Williams    F    Louisiana State    
Bigby-Williams has committed to transfer to LSU, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bigby-Williams decided in April to transfer away from Oregon for his final year of eligibility after a season in which he averaged 3.0 points per game. He will likely need to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules before finishing out his last season in 2018-19 season.
Elbert Robinson III    C       
Robinson will step away from the LSU basketball team, Kent Lowe of LSUsports.net reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Robinson is expected to remain at LSU to finish his degree, but will no longer be a part of the basketball tam, as he's set to step away from competition due to medical reasons. While it's an unfortunate end to Robinson's career, it shouldn't have a drastic effect on the Tigers' regular rotation considering the 7-foot-1 big man played just 6.4 minutes per game during his junior campaign.
Mawdo Sallah    C    Kansas State    
Sallah will transfer to Kansas State, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

It was originally reported in early May that Sallah was transferring to UNC-Wilmington, but it appears as though that was either a false report or the graduate transfer has changed his mind. Sallah averaged 6.1 points and 5.3 rebounds across 20 minutes per game at Mount St. Mary's last season and will now be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer to play for head coach Bruce Weber and the Wildcats next season.
Mario Kegler    F    Baylor    
Kegler will transfer to Baylor, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Kegler is coming off an impressive freshman year with Mississippi State after posting averages of 9.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 28.2 minutes. While he'll have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to the current NCAA transfer rules, Kegler will offer Baylor a young and upcoming option in the backcourt to groom for the future one he's eligible for his sophomore year at the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
Samir Doughty    G    Auburn    
Dougty will transfer from VCU to Auburn, SECcountry.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dougty was a solid contributor for VCU during his freshman campaign, boasting averages of 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 23.1 minutes per game. He shot 41 percent from the field, but just 28 percent from the three-point line, so he could definitely stand to do a better job of extending his range. Look for the 6-foot-4 guard to sit out the upcoming season due to the current NCAA transfer rules, before being available at the start of the 2018-19 campaign with three years of eligibility remaining.
Kevin Dorsey    G       
Dorsey will transfer from Colorado State, Keegan Pope of Scout.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dorsey will leave Colorado State after never seeing the floor for the team due to a logjam in the backcourt. He last played during the 2015-16 season at Minnesota, where he averaged 6.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 18.3 minutes per game. Dorsey will likely pursue a program where he can make a meaningful contribution and showcase his skillset.
Kevin Little    G       
Little will transfer from Colorado State, Jeff Borzello of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Little, who sat out last season, averaged 14.7 points, 2.6 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals across 27.6 minutes per game during the 2015-16 season with Maine. He'll likely be searching for a program that will give him more opportunities to prove himself.
Daishon Smith    F    Louisiana-Monroe    
Smith will transfer to Lousiana-Monroe.

Fantasy Analysis

Smith served as a reserve for the Shockers in his first season since being a JUCO transfer, averaging 4.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 15 minutes per game. He'll have one year of eligibility remaining at UL-Monroe after sitting out next season due to NCAA transfer rules.
