After an 8-22 season in head coach Leonard Perry’s first year at the helm, Perry and his University of the Pacific staff have gone out and nailed down the transfer portal in an effort to turn the program around.
Perry brought in two former Oklahoma State players, two guards that averaged 8 and 13 points per game, respectively, and a former top-150 recruit from Chicago. Not too shabby.
Let’s check out the class.

While it will lose graduate students Alphonso Anderson and Jeremiah Bailey, Pacific does return Luke Avdalovic, Nick Blake, Sam Freeman, Greg Outlaw, Jalen Brown, and other contributors.
Avdalovic will surely be a key contributor this year for the Tigers, as he was the only player on the team to average more than 30 minutes per game last season. The 6-foot-5 guard also shot 36% from three-point range en route to averaging ten points per game.
Blake averaged 8.8 points per contest last year, and exploded for a season-high 20 twice; once against BYU and once against Pepperdine.
Outlaw’s best game of the year came against UC Santa Barbara in December, in which he put up a 15-point, 8-rebound stat line while going 3 for 3 from three-point range.
