HuGe NeWs: The entire team Kentucky are to be awarded for having the best college universities in 2024 transfer Portal stock

No one had better portal seasons than these teams.

The college basketball transfer portal closed May 1, and though there are still plenty of uncommitted prospects on the board, several teams have already pulled off successful roster overhauls this offseason. Several teams on this list, including Alabama, Kansas, and North Carolina, made the preseason top 25, while others, like Arkansas and Kentucky, entered the conversation with big portal hauls.

Seventeen transfer prospects from the top 100 rankings are still looking for teams. With plenty of movement expected over the next few weeks, several more teams could join this list before the dust settles.

More than 1,900 players entered the transfer portal for the 2024 cycle, including the final round of super COVID seniors; because of this, the record number of transfer portal entries set in 2024 is unlikely to be topped. Our final portal rankings, a top 150 full of impact starters and future college basketball stars, were released earlier this week.

Transfer Portal Class Ranking: No. 4

Darian DeVries had plenty of work to do after inheriting a 9-23 squad. He got to work early and has landed commitments from six transfers, highlighted by four-stars Javon Small and his son, Tucker DeVries. Small, the No. 9 prospect and No. 2 point guard, averaged 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists at Oklahoma State last season and shot 44.1% from the floor and 37.4% from three. DeVries is an NBA talent. He’s 6-foot-7 and converted 36.3% of his three-point attempts despite being the focal point of opposing defenses. The Mountaineers are poised for a big rebound in 2024-25.
