The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Shannon Hale    F    Alabama    
Hale (foot) is recovering from offseason surgery, Kevin Brockway of GatorSports.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The senior-to-be forward averaged 10.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 25 minutes per game for the Crimson Tide during the 2015-16 season. Hale missed multiple games in February with a foot injury, which he continued to play on into March. There is no timetable for Hale's return after his foot procedure.
Giovanni McLean    G    Texas Tech    
McLean elected to sign with Texas Tech on Monday, ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a graduate transfer from Quinnipiac, McLean will be eligible to play immediately for Texas Tech. He could be a candidate to see big minutes right away in the backcourt after Texas Tech lost its top two scoring guards, Toddrick Gotcher and Devaugntah Williams, to graduation. In his lone season at Quinnipiac, McLean averaged 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
Matt Mobley    G    St. Bonaventure    
Mobley has been impressive since transferring to the Bonnies after his sophomore year and could be in line to start this upcoming season, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After lighting up the competition with Central Connecticut in his sophomore campagin (17.2 PPG, 2.8 RPG), Mobley transferred to St. Bonaventure where he had to sit out all of last season. Mobley's biggest internal competition will undoubtedly be against fellow teammates Marcus Posley and Jaylen Adams. If the Bonnies opt to go with a three guard system, Mobley would be the biggest beneficiary. If not, he still presumes to be one of the team's most significant offensive weapons for the 2016-17 season.
Max Hoetzel    F    San Diego State    
Coach Steve Fisher said that Hoetzel is the team's "best offensive rebounder" since transferring to the Aztecs this offseason, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

In his freshman season at Indiana, Hoetzel averaged just 2.4 PPG and 1.3 RPG. The 6-foot-8 forward with a wide range of skills found himself stuck behind the likes of teammates Troy Williams and Collin Hartman for playing time. Hoetzel presents matchup nightmares for opposing coaches with his ability to step out and shoot the ball at consistent measures. After sitting out last season due to transfer regulations, Hoetzel figures to step into an increased role with the Aztecs for the 2016-17 campaign.
Jordan Mathews    G    Gonzaga    
Mathews will transfer to Gonzaga as a graduate transfer, ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Mathews was mainly a 3-point shooter for California in 2015-16 and averaged 13.5 points. He hit 41.6 percent of his 3-pointers. The 6-3 senior will join Nigel Williams-Goss and Jonathan Williams as transfer for the Bulldogs.
Andrew White    F    Nebraska    
White has requested release from his scholarship and would be a graduate transfer, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

White provided 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds for the Huskers. He hit 41.2 percent of his 3-pointers. Returning starters Tai Webster and Glynn Watson should get more scoring opportunities. Sophomore Ed Morrow could see more minutes as well.
Giovanni McLean    G    Quinnipiac    
McLean will graduate and transfer from Quinnipac.

Fantasy Analysis

McLean was the highest scoring player for Quinnipiac, with averages of 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 31 minutes per game. There isn't any word on where he will transfer to, but he'll be immediately eligible upon his commitment to his new team.
Charles Buggs    F       
Buggs will transfer to USC, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Buggs averaged 5.9 points in 24 minutes per game with Minnesota. The 6-foot-9 forward will be immediately eligible for the 2016-17 season. Buggs was expecting a drop in playing time at Minnesota in the following year, which is why he desired a transfer. It's unclear what his role will be for USC, but if nothing he'll add talented depth.
Michael Hurt    F    Minnesota    
Head coach Richard Pitino praised Hurt's work ethic and focus in the offseason, Amelia Rayno of the Star Tribune reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pitino called Hurt a "gym rat", and "one of the most focused guys in the weight room". The freshman out of Rochester, Minnesota is a three star recruit that will likely be able to make an instant impact on the Gophers depleted roster.
Bakary Konate    C    Minnesota    
Konate has missed some time in the offseason due to a quad injury, Amelia Rayno of the Star Tribune reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Konate averaged 4.8 points and 5.1 rebounds in 22 minutes per game as a sophomore. The junior center is expected to be ready to go for the season, as Pitino called the injury, "nothing serious".
Kendrick Nunn    G    Oakland    
Nunn will transfer to Oakland, Joe Henricksen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This news comes after Nunn was dismissed from the Illinois basketball team following a domestic battery charge that occurred in March. Nunn was a very productive guard for the Illini and should serve as a positive contributor for Oakland after sitting out a year. He averaged 15.5 points per game as a junior.
Charles Matthews    G       
Matthews decided to transfer to Michigan on Monday, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Matthews will sit out in the 2016-17 season due to transfer rules, however he will have three years of eligibility remaining afterwards. He played in every game during his freshman campaign, and averaged 1.7 points and 1.6 rebounds in 10 minutes per game.
John Middleton    G    Utah State    
Middleton has decided to transfer to Valparaiso, Joshua Parrott of Basketball Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Middleton, a 6-foot-4 guard, scored 1.8 points per game at Utah State. He will provide depth at the guard position for Valparaiso.
Bakari Evelyn    G       
Evelyn has decided to transfer to Valparaiso, Joshua Parrott of Basketball Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Evelyn was limited to 5 minutes per game at Nebraska and just 1.3 points per game during his freshman season. Moving to a smaller school with slightly less competition than the Big Ten Conference could earn him more playing time down the road.
Troy Harper    G    Drexel    
Harper has decided to transfer to Drexel, Bret Strelow of the Fayetteville Observer reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Harper was a valuable member of the Campbell squad last year starting 21 games and playing in all 30, so this move clearly isn't about playing time. The guard reportedly wanted to be closer to home, and while playing with Drexel, his 13.5 points per game production from last season will likely continue.
