Well, it’s officially official. In a long-anticipated move, the NCAA announced on Thursday that student-athletes can now transfer once without needing to sit out a year.

While it could lead to more of a “free agency” feel each spring in college basketball, freedom of movement is something celebrated by the Transfer Rankings. The transfer portal has already seen record numbers in terms of players leaving programs, but much of that has to do with seniors taking advantage of an extra year of eligibility. With the one-time transfer waiver passing, expect the numbers to remain fairly high over the next few years.

Upward of 100 players per day entered the portal during the NCAA tournament, with this offseason’s transfer total surpassing 2019-20 numbers before March had even ended. But things have slowed down, so it’s the perfect time to reassess and update the top 100 players in the portal.

Updated April 16, 2021. Will be updated regularly.

1. Marcus Carr, 6-2, 195 lbs, PG, Jr., Minnesota

One of the best scorers in the country last season, Carr earned third-team All-Big Ten honors after averaging 19.4 points and 4.9 assists. He also entered his name into the NBA draft, but it’s hard to imagine him getting passed as the top transfer available.
