This week, there have been many prospects in the portal that have found new homes for next season.
Let’s take a look at some of the top commitments of the week.
1. Brandon Murray LSU > Georgetown
6-foot-5 guard, averaged 10 points per game and shot 43% from the field. Murray, a DMV native, is a massive pickup for Patrick Ewing and Georgetown.
2. Andre Curbelo Illinois > St. John’s
6-foot-1 guard has one of the highest ceilings in basketball. If he can stay healthy and figure out how to mesh with Posh Alexander, Johnnies should have one of the most dangerous back courts in the nation.
3. Eric Gaines, LSU > UAB
Gaines, a 6-foot-2 guard, averaged 9.2 points per game for the Tigers. Will help Andy Kennedy’s squad right away.
4. Jaelin Llewellyn Princeton > Clemson
6-foot-2 guard scored 15.7 points per game on 45% shooting. Llewellyn had a long line waiting for him but the Tigers came out on top.
5. Noah Locke Louisville > Providence
Locke brings four years of at least 9.4 points per game to Ed Cooley’s program and should contribute from day one.
6. Will Richard Belmont > Florida
6-foot-5 guard with three years of eligibility remaining. Richard scored over 12 points per game in conference play last season and will now make the jump to the SEC.
7. Jake Stephens VMI > Chattanooga
Stephens, a 6-foot-11 center, ranked in the top 30 in the nation in both points and rebounds per game. Solid inside pickup for the Mocs.
8. Joe Toussaint Iowa > West Virginia
6-foot guard didn’t have too major of a role for the Hawkeyes, but produced in his limited minutes. Dished out a career-high 114 assists this season and will be a veteran leader for Bob Huggins’ squad.
9. Neal Quinn Lafayette > Richmond
Quinn, a 7-footer, put up 14.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per game at Lafayette last year. Big man should fit well into the Spiders’ system.
10. Dwon Odom Xavier > Georgia State
6-foot-2 guard returns to his home state of Georgia. Showed flashes in the Big East but should breakout for Georgia State next year.
