Top 10 Big East Transfer Portal Pickups



With 2023 National Champions UConn still undefeated as they look to defend their crown, the Big East has been off to a hot start alongside Marquette, Providence, Creighton and Villanova. Let’s take a look at the top 10 Big East transfer portal pickups from this past offseason and discuss how effective each individual has been with their new program.

1.) Dontrez Styles – Georgetown

The former top-100 prospect and North Carolina recruit is the second-leading scorer for Ed Cooley’s revamped Hoyas, averaging 17.8 PPG and 7.2 RPG, already with a pair of double-doubles on the season.

2.) Josh Oduro – Providence

The George Mason transfer followed head coach Kim English to Providence this offseason and has proven capable of handling the jump to the Big East averaging 14.6 PPG, 6.3 RPG, and 1.4 BKPG.

3.) Daniss Jenkins – St. John’s

Following head coach Rick Pitino over from Iona, the two-time transfer has proven his biggest portal success averaging 12.8 PPG, 3.8 RPG, and a career-best 5.8 APG for the 4-2 Johnnies.

4.) RJ Luis – St. John’s

Just behind Jenkins is former UMass guard RJ Luis who made his long-awaited debut on Saturday after opening the season on the injury list and dropped 14 points, four rebounds and three steals in a 91-45 win over Holy Cross.

5.) Jayden Epps – Georgetown

Another former top-100 prospect that Cooley added this offseason, the Illinois transfer is leading the Hoyas in scoring with 19.7 PPG and 4.8 APG which included consecutive 30-point performances in recent wins over American and Jackson State.

6.) Cam Spencer – UConn

The Loyola (MD) and Rutgers transfer has been the perfect addition for Dan Hurley and the National Champs so far this season, averaging 16.3 PPG and complementing the Huskies offense with his deadly 3-point shooting at 48% on 46 attempts. 

7.) Chris Ledlum – St. John’s

Our third Johnnie on this list is the former Harvard wing who opened the season with a 15-point, 13-rebound double-double over Stony Brook and is averaging 9.7 PPG and 8 RPG to start the 2023-24 campaign.

 8.) Chico Carter – DePaul

A former Murray State and South Carolina guard, Carter has been the leading scorer for a struggling Blue Demons squad averaging 13.3 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 3.8 APG, despite the 1-5 start.

9.) Quincy Olivari – Xavier

A two-time All-Conference USA selection at Rice, the graduate senior is one of head coach Sean Miller’s primary ball handlers averaging 13.4 PPG, 5.1 RPG, and 2.1 APG while recently contributing 22 points in a win over Bryant.

10.) Supreme Cook – Georgetown

The former Fairfield forward has become the Hoyas leading interior threat, opening the season with a double-double of 19 points and 13 rebounds against Le Moyne and averaging 11.2 PPG and 8 RPG since.
