The transfer portal has begun to own the college basketball offseason. Sure, there's the coaching carousel and the NBA draft early-entry deadline, but much of the discussion surrounds transfers. Preseason top 25s are dictated heavily by incoming transfers or players who sat out -- everyone who sat out was "the best player in practice," if you weren't aware -- and coaches spend a lot of time scouring the portal for potential recruits.
Part of that process is trying to figure out whether statistics will translate from one level to the next or whether the player has better days ahead after struggling at the previous stop. It's very much an inexact science.
