Rankings: Top 15 Available Mid-Major Sharp Shooters
All different types of players have entered the NCAA transfer portal but a good chunk of the 1,500+ crew are from the mid-major level. There are many different types of athletes, but everyone is always looking for a good shooter.
Here are The Portal Report’s top 15 mid-major sharpshooters in the portal. They have to be effective from not only inside but behind the arch.
1. Malachi Smith (Chattanooga)
Along with entering his name into the NBA Draft, Smith entered it into the transfer portal. He struggled under the brightest lights in the SoCon title game and the Mocs’ first-round game against Illinois but still finished shooting 49.3% from the field on the season. Against Murray State, Smith shot 14-17 while scoring 36 points. He finished the season averaging 20 points per game while shooting 41% from three.
T-2. Isiaih Mosley (Missouri St.)
The 6-foot-5 guard out of Columbia, Missouri is one of the top names in the portal due to his fantastic shooting ability. Mosley started 32 games on the year, averaging over 20 points per game and hitting 43% of his threes and 54% of his field goals. He hit a career-high 70 three pointers this year, and is bound to have a large role outside at his next destination.
T-2. Michael Jones (Davidson)
Jones might be the most underrated part of Davidson’s at-large team from a season ago. Shooting 42.1% from behind the arch, he averaged two three-pointers per game. Jones dropped 29 points against Richmond and 21 against Alabama, both NCAA Tournament teams. He would finish the season averaging 11.8 points in one of the most difficult leagues in the country, the A10.
3. Felipe Haase (Mercer)
I have long wanted to write about the great Felipe Haase. After two seasons at South Carolina, he transferred to Mercer where he has shined. Against Winthrop, he scored 41 points. In all but four games, he scored double-digit points. He’s not just yanking up shots either, as he is shooting 56.7% from two-point range and averaging 2.2 three-pointers per game while shooting 40.6% from three. Expect him to make the jump back up to a power five school.
4. Grant Sherfield (Nevada)
There was a time when Grant Sherfield was being talked about as a potential Mountain West Player of the Year. Scoring 1,017 points in only two seasons in Reno, Sherfield had five games in the 21-22 season where he made double-digit shots. There were 15 times where he scored 20+ points last season finishing with a 43.5% field goal percentage.
5. Khalil Shabazz (San Francisco)
A member of the All-WCC second team, Shabazz was one of the many reasons for the Dons’ surge onto the scene this past season. He averaged 13.7 points per game in one of the toughest leagues in the country, draining 79 three-pointers. In a game against St.Mary’s, he hit five three-pointers, while scoring 22 points against one of the toughest teams in the country.
6. Montre Gipson (Tarleton State)
Gipson has been the heart of the Texans since their move to D1. In his first season at the D1 level, he shot 54.9% from the field while averaging 15.3 points per game. He also hit half of his three-pointers. In a game against New Mexico State this season, he scored 23 points while draining five three-pointers. Gipson would finish the season averaging 14.9 points per game on a 42.9% field goal percentage
7. Seikou Sisoho-Jawara (Weber State)
The young Spaniard followed a 50.2% shooting freshman season with another strong season in 21-22. Improving his three-point shooting by nearly two-percent to 42.6%, Sisoho-Jawara hit six of seven three’s against Eastern Washington earlier in the season. He averaged 12.2 points for the Wildcats.
8. Russell Harrison (Louisiana Monroe)
After being named to the NJCAA All-American team during his sophomore season at JUCO, Harrison didn’t miss a step when moving to D1 ball. He drained 69 threes and scored double digits in 21 of his final 26 games.
9. Caleb Asberry (Texas State)
Caleb Asberry was named to the All-Sun Belt first team and was a huge reason for the continued success in San Marcos. In a game against Troy, he dropped 26 points. After shooting 43.3% from the field and draining 50 three-pointers, Asberry is looking to take the step up.
10. Kam Farris (Robert Morris)
When Farris was on, the Colonials were on. Although he only averaged nine points per game, he finished the season shooting 42.5% from the field and 40% from three. In a game against NCAA Tournament team, Wright State, Farris scored 20 points on 8-10 shooting, going 4-5 from behind the arch.
11. Caleb Fuller (UC Davis)
The English kid seems to be getting more and more playing time every season. Averaging double digits for the first time in his college career during the 21-22 season, he shot 41.5% from the field. That was his worst percentage so far, following that up after a 52.9% field goal percentage in 2019-20. Fuller scored double digits in five of his last six games this past season.
12. Bryson Mozone (USC Upstate)
The Spartans came out of nowhere in the Big South this past season and you can thank Bryson Mozone for that. In the season opener against South Carolina, Mozone scored 20 points. He would finish the season scoring 29 points in a postseason loss to South Alabama. After averaging no more than nine points in a college season, he averaged 15.8 points per game last season while shooting 44.6% from the field and draining 71 threes.
13. Jalen Hawkins (Norfolk State)
Hawkins really impressed in the MEAC, averaging 12.9 points per game. He was a very effective 45.9% shooter, scoring 41 points against Coppin State in two games.
14. Cameron Healy (Central Michigan)
After four seasons at UAlbany, Cam Healy transferred to Central Michigan and only continued to produce. Healy dropped 32 points in a game against Kent State while averaging 11.7 points per game. He struggled with efficiency but still shot a very strong 42.5% from the field.
15. Dominik Fragala (Delaware State)
Delaware State might not be the most well-known program in D1 hoops but Dom Fragala made watching a game worthwhile. Averaging 12.5 points per game, Fragala scored 20+ points in two of his final four games.
