While it’s been a down year for the ACC with just three teams currently in the NCAA Tournament conversation according to ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi, it’s been a conference rife with transfer talent this season. Today, we’re breaking down the top 10 transfer scorers in the ACC this season and the impact they each had with the new program as conference play is now underway.
10.) Harrison Ingram – North Carolina
To help the Tar Heels to a 16-3 record and an 8-0 start to the ACC campaign, the addition of Ingram from Stanford this offseason has been critical to North Carolina’s early success. Averaging career-highs of 12.3 PPG and 8.2 RPG, the 2021-22 Pac-12 Rookie of the Year has started all 19 contests for the Tar Heels this season and has already managed five double-doubles.
Highlighted by Ingram’s 10 points and 14 rebounds in last night’s 85-64 win over Wake Forest, the former top-100 prospect has only improved his game since entering conference play.
9.) Tre White – Louisville
Another former top-100 prospect who arrived at Louisville by way of USC this past offseason, White, just a sophomore, is already leading this team with career-high numbers of 12.5 PPG, 5.6 RPG, and 1.5 APG. Despite the early season struggles from the Cardinals, sitting just 6-12 and now 1-6 in ACC play, the transfer talent has been productive and White’s been a major factor on the offensive end of the floor.
This season, it’s been all about development for White, tying his previous career-high with 22 points, six rebounds, and three steals in a 90-84 win over New Mexico State.
