The college basketball season is in full swing. Top teams are going down at the hands of unranked teams led by brilliant performances from players fresh out of the transfer portal. Here are ten transfer studs who I feel are extremely underrated and need to be talked about more.
Sean Durugordon, Siena G
A career that started at Missouri has come full circle for Sean Durugordon. After two seasons at Mizzou followed by one at Austin Peay, Durugordon spent much of the early part of this season waiting on a decision from the NCAA regarding his request for eligibility.
Durugordon finally was cleared for his first game on December 19th and has not looked back. The 6-5 junior has gone for over 20 points in all six games he’s played, including a season high 36 in Monday’s win over Niagara. His efficiency in the contest was unbelievable. Durugordon shot 10-14 from the field and 16-16 at the line. In addition, he secured 12 rebounds in the win.
Great Osobor, Utah State F
The first season at Utah State has been nothing but great for Osobor and the Aggies so far. A Bradford, England native, Osobor started his career with Montana State. Last season while averaging just under 19 minutes per game, Osobor averaged ten and five. His performance off the bench earned him Big Sky Top Reserve honors.
Now with the Aggies, Osobor is showcasing his full potential. The incredibly athletic forward is getting 32 minutes per contest while starting every game. In response to the increased workload, Osobor is averaging 18.7 ppg and 9.6 rpg. Look for Osobor to continue to dominate and possibly climb draft boards.
