Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Matt Morgan    F    Cornell    
Morgan will withdraw his name from the NBA draft process and return to school, ESPN's Jeff Goodmanreports.

Fantasy Analysis

In each of his first two seasons at Cornell, Morgan has averaged over 18.0 PPG on 40-plus percent shooting from the floor. There's a good chance Morgan will play professional once he's tenure at Cornell runs up, but for the time being the 6-foot-3 rising junior will be a force to be reckoned with in the Ivy League.
Angel Delgado    F    Seton Hall    
Delgado announced that will return to school for his senior season.

Fantasy Analysis

Delgado really emerged onto the national scene last season by posting 15.2 PPG, 13.1 RPG and 2.2 APG. With the 6-foot-10 forward back on campus, Seton Hall could make some noise in the Big East next season.
Marcel Pettway    F    Nevada    
Pettway will transfer to Nevada, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Nevada is getting an efficient scorer in Pettway. Last season at Bryant, Pettway averaged 10.3 PPG while shooting 58 percent from the floor. Per NCAA transfer rules, he'll have to sit out one full season before he can play out his junior year.
Jaylen Adams    G    St. Bonaventure    
Adams will return to school for his senior season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The Bonnies can exhale after holding their breath for nearly two months. With his return to campus, Adams will bring with him his 20.6 PPG, 3.7 PRG and 6.5 APG. A legitimate professional prospect, Adams will likely be in the mix for several conference honors at the conclusion of next season.
Matt Taylor    G    New Mexico State    
Taylor will forego his senior season and pursue a career overseas, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Taylor saw valuable minutes for the Aggies last year and was thought be one of the more important players headed into next season. Unfortunately for New Mexico State, Taylor will take his talents abroad where he hopes to earn a living. With the team's leading scorer from a year ago, Ian Baker, no longer in the mix, Braxton Huggins figures to be a focal point on offense as November approaches.
Shaquille Morris    F    Wichita State    
Morris will return to school, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The rising senior averaged 9.6 PPG. 5.1 RPG and 1.1 APG last season with the Shockers. Arguably the most experienced player on the roster, Morris figures to function as a centerpiece for Wichita State entering fall.
Andrew Jones    G    Texas    
Jones will return to school for his sophomore season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jones served as a spark plug for the Longhorns during his first season in Austin. With a full year under his belt, the expectation is for Jones to take the next step forward and ascend onto the national stage during his sophomore campaign.
Simeon Carter    F    Georgia Southern    
Carter has landed at Georgia Southern.

Fantasy Analysis

Carter never got off on the right foot at Iowa State and his production stymied. Looking for a fresh start and more minutes, Georgia Southern should be a nice, new beginning for the 6-foot-8 forward.
Jaaron Simmons    G    Michigan    
Simmons will withdraw from the NBA draft process and play at Michigan next season, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

With Michigan essentially reloading, Simmons will have the opportunity to function as a catalyst for the Wolverines next year. Last season with Ohio, Simmons averaged 15.9 PPG and 6.5 APG. Given that Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin and Duncan Robinson are no longer in the picture, Simmons could be relied on to keep this team afloat during conference play.
Kamau Stokes    G    Kansas State    
Stokes will withdraw his name from the NBA Draft process and return to school, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Stokes decided to test the professional waters after two solid seasons at Kansas State, but given the depth of the current draft class and the opportunity to improve on his individual game, the rising junior will return to school. The Baltimore native has a chance to ascend onto the national stage if he can take that next step forward. Last season, Stokes tallied 11.7 PPG and 4.1 APG over 33.3 MPG.
Jevon Carter    G    West Virginia    
Carter will return to school for his senior season, Bryan Messerly of the school's official site reports.

Fantasy Analysis

It looked as if there was a real chance the reigning Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Year was going to turn pro, but Carter will use his last year of collegiate eligibility to refine his game instead. Carter led the Mountaineers with 13.5 PPG last season and figures to be the engine once again in Morgantown this upcoming year.
Trae Bell-Haynes    G    Vermont    
Vermont coach John Becker said Monday that Bell-Haynes has withdrawn his name from the 2017 NBA Draft, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As was widely expected, Bell-Haynes will return to Vermont for his senior season after the Toronto native received no assurances from teams that he'd be drafted in June. Bell-Haynes should once again be in line for a featured role with the Catamounts after averaging double-digit points and at least 3.5 assists per game in both of the last two seasons.
James Thompson IV    C    Eastern Michigan    
Eastern Michigan coach Rob Murphy said Monday that Thompson would withdraw from the 2017 NBA Draft and return to school for his junior season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Thompson has been a double-double machine in his two seasons with the Eagles, but his lack of a perimeter game likely limits his NBA upside in the minds of many scouts. It's possible that Thompson will look to showcase more of an outside shot during his junior campaign with Eastern Michigan, though it likely wouldn't result in any drastic change to his statistical production.
Bashir Ahmed    F    St. John's    
Ahmed withdrew from the 2017 NBA Draft on Monday and is returning to St. John's for his sophomore season, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ahmed is coming off a solid first season with St. John's, averaging 13.4 points and 5.5 rebounds over 26.7 minutes per game as a transfer from junior college. The wing boasts NBA size but will use his final year of eligibility to try an boost his professional stock even more, as he should serve as a very crucial piece over the course of the Red Storm's 2017-18 season.
Obi Enechionyia    F    Temple    
Enechionyia withdrew from the 2017 NBA Draft on Monday and will return to school for his senior season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Enechionyia was likely never seriously considering entering the NBA Draft, but he used his time testing the waters to see what he could improve on as he enters his final season at Temple. Enechionyia is coming off a junior campaign where he averaged 13.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks across 33 minutes per game while shooting an impressive 38.5 percent from three. He will serve as the Owls' top frontcourt player once again in 2017-18.
