The transfer portal has taken another big hit as a former top-100 prospect and one of the country’s top scorers both officially decide on their destinations while the NBA Draft news continues to slowly trickle in with that deadline to withdraw and maintain eligibility finally passing last week. The Portal Report has you covered on all the latest transfer news and updates from around the college basketball landscape.
After two seasons at Kentucky, former top-30 prospect Keion Brooks Jr. announced via his Instagram today that he would be heading to Washington to sign with head coach Mike Hopkins. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 10.8 PPG, 4.4 RPG, and 1.0 APG in 33 starts for the Wildcats and reportedly decided between the Huskies, Arizona, Notre Dame, and UCLA.
Arguably the transfer portal’s best scorer has exited as Missouri native Isiaih Mosley will be staying home and transferring to Missouri after three seasons with Missouri State. A two-time All-MVC selection and the 2020-21 MVC Most Improved Player, Mosley averaged 20.4 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 2.3 APG as a top-15 scorer in the nation during his junior campaign and will provide some instant offense for first-year Tigers head coach Dennis Gates.
In what will be the fifth school of his collegiate career, 6-foot-8 forward Michael Henn will be joining Penn State for his graduate season after averaging 8.8 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 1.8 APG as a senior. Henn has spent time at UC-Davis, California-Baptist, Portland, and Denver throughout his six seasons of college ball but has dealt with injuries along the way and sat out two years with the Lancers.
Mikey Henn has committed to Penn State. It’ll be the 5th Division 1 team he plays for.

Having entered the transfer portal earlier this March, Shareef O’Neal; the son of NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, has announced that he will not stay in the transfer portal and instead has decided to maintain his status for the NBA Draft. O’Neal averaged only 2.9 PPG and 2.1 RPG last season but is a former top-100 prospect that has spent time with UCLA and LSU while unfortunately managing injuries and personal health issues throughout his young career.
