Former Transfers Topping National Scoring Leaders List
The transfer portal has changed college hoops entirely.
Transfers have taken over college basketball, and are playing all over the country at their new homes.
Some of the best players in the country have spent time in the portal over the past few years, and this year, some of the top scorers in the nation are transfers.
Tyson, a junior guard at Seattle, is leading the nation in scoring at 28.3 points per game. He started his career at Idaho, then transferred to Houston, and in 2021, transferred again to Seattle.
