While we don’t know exactly how many players will be available during the next transfer portal cycle for basketball, there will be several Ivy League players that enter the portal while playing for their current teams this year as the league does not allow graduate transfers.
Cornell guard Chris Manon told The Portal Report that he will be entering the transfer portal as a graduate transfer for the 2024-25 season. To be clear, Manon will play the 2023-24 season (beginning in less than one week) for Cornell once again. This will be his fourth season with the program. After the season when Manon graduates, he will be available as a graduate transfer and will have immediate eligibility.

What a play by Chris Manon on the inbounds!
Cornell holds a game-high lead over first placed Yale, 58-51 with 4:12 remaining.
A Big Red win not only keeps them in the four spot but moves Princeton into sole possession of first place.
