With the deadline for early entrants to finally withdraw their names from the NBA Draft just days away, multiple of college basketball’s top prospects still remain in the evaluation process with decisions expected on their potential transfers any day now. The Portal Report has you covered on all the latest transfer news and updates from Saturday’s action all around the country.
Former top-100 prospect Rocket Watts has announced he will transfer for a second time joining the Oakland Golden Grizzlies following seasons with Michigan State and Mississippi State. A 6-foot-2 guard, Watts averaged just 4.4 PPG and .9 RPG in his one season with the Bulldogs but for his collegiate career is managing 7.3 PPG, 1.7 RPG, and 1.8 APG in 74 total Power-5 appearances.
Another former top-100 prospect is on the move as Rondel Walker will reportedly be transferring within the Big 12 Conference, leaving Oklahoma State to play at TCU with three years of eligibility remaining. While never a starter for the Cowboys, Walker averaged 6.3 PPG, 2.7 RPG, and 1 APG during his two seasons in Stillwater making 59 appearances, and instantly brings a gritty defensive guard to the Horned Frogs backcourt.
Two-time All-MVC selection Isiaih Mosley will be officially withdrawing his name from NBA Draft contention and plans to keep himself in the transfer portal in search of a new program ahead of the 2022-23 season. Mosley spent three seasons at Missouri State; two as a starter, where he averaged 20.4 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 2.3 APG as a junior with the Bears but now searches for a Power-5 Conference challenge.
Three-time MAAC Defensive Player of the Year and a leader on last season’s Saint Peter’s squad, KC Ndefo will be exiting the NBA Draft and transferring to Seton Hall to reunite with former Peacock turned Pirates head coach Shaheen Holloway. Ndefo averaged 10.5 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 2.4 APG, and 2.8 BKPG as a 6-foot-7 forward including 14 total blocks in 4 NCAA Tournament appearances, and will prove a defensive issue for any player at the top level.
