Transfer stars like Hunter Dickinson who transfer from one power five school to another get much of the attention through the long CBB offseason. With these guys taking the spotlight mid-major stars fall under the radar. Below are my five best mid-major transfers one week into hoops season.
Jordan King, Richmond
- A 6-1 guard, King has been scoring from all over the floor to start the season for the Spiders.
- The East Tennessee State transfer is averaging 22 per contest aided by a 34-point outburst in the team’s first game.
- Senior is shooting over 50% from beyond the arc.
Kolby King, Tulane
- King and the Green Wave are off to a 2-0 start, with the Saint John’s transfer leading the way.
- The 6-2 guard is scoring 21 ppg through two starts with Tulane on over 65% from the floor.
Nique Clifford, Colorado State
- A Colorado Springs native, Clifford made the decision to transfer from CU Boulder after starting all but two games for the Buffs last year but averaging just under six points.
- The 6-6 forward is shooting a whopping 71.4% from three, while averaging 17.5 per contest to start the year.
- Clifford has been great on the defensive end for the Rams, snagging 2.5 steals per game through two wins.
Xander Rice, Monmouth
- Rice showed out for 30 points in a road upset against power five West Virginia.
- The Bucknell transfer is tied for first among transfers with Iona guard Idan Tretout with 25.5 ppg.
- The senior guard is a confident shooter and hopes to help Monmouth make a run in the CAA.
Jason Jitoboh, Tennessee State
- At 6-11 300 lbs, Jitoboh is tough for defenses to handle.
- The Florida transfer is off to a great start for TSU, tallying 15 and eight boards per game after two games.
- The athletic big man is an efficient scorer, shooting 65% from the field.
