Kaleb Tarczewski    C    Arizona     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Tarczewski will return to Arizona for his senior season, Arizona Daily Star reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The Wildcats are losing their other four starters, but this may allow Tarczewski to get more offensive opportunities. He has sacrificed for the good of his team in his first three seasons. The Wildcat center provided 9.3 points and 5.2 rebounds in 26.0 minutes last season.
Buddy Hield    G    Oklahoma     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Hield announced that he will return to Oklahoma for his senior season, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Hield led the Sooners with 17.4 points and was the Big 12 Player of the Year. Ryan Spangler, Isaiah Cousins, and Jordan Woodard will be back and Hield will lead a strong nucleus to try to challenge Kansas' conference dominance.
Chris Walker    F    Florida     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Walker will enter the NBA draft, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Walker averaged 4.7 points and 3.5 rebounds in 14.6 minutes as a sophomore. He has NBA-level athleticism and was a highly touted recruit before academic eligibility issues stunted his freshman season. The 6-10 forward will be a major project and will be lucky to get drafted.
Eric Paschall    G        + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Paschall will transfer to VIllanova, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-6 forward provided 15.9 points and 5.5 rebounds as a freshman at Fordham last season. He will have to sit out the 2015-16 season, but will have three years of eligibility remaining.
Stanley Johnson    F    Arizona     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Johnson declared for the NBA draft, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-7 Johnson averaged 13.8 points and 6.5 rebounds in his lone season with the Wildcats. He hit 37.1 percent of his 3-pointers and certainly has a wide-shouldered NBA body type. The small forward projects as a lottery pick.
James Blackmon, Jr.    G    Indiana     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Blackmon announced that he will return to the Hoosiers for his sophomore season, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Blackmon had a stellar freshman campaign with 15.7 points and 5.3 rebounds. He helped Indiana return to the NCAA tournament after a one-year absence. If Yogi Ferrell decides to return, Indiana will have one of the better backcourts in the Big 10.
Damion Lee    F        + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Lee will transfer to Louisvile, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Lee led the Colonial with 21.4 points and added 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He has already graduated so will be eligible for the 2015-16 season. With Terry Rozier and Montrezl Harrell going pro, there will be plenty of shot opportunities for Lee.
Tyrone Wallace    G    California     + Add To Watchlist
4/24/2015
Wallace will return to California for his senior season, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Wallace is a 6-5 guard who provided 17.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.0 assists for the Golden Bears, who did not play in a postseason tournament. With Jordan Mathews and Jabari Bird, Cal should be stocked in the backcourt but will need some bigs, such as 6-11 freshman Ivan Rabb, to step up.
Adam Smith    G    Georgia Tech     + Add To Watchlist
4/23/2015
Smith will transfer to Georgia Tech for the 2015-16 season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Smith had already indicated his intention to transfer upon graduation from Virginia Tech in May, but the 6-foot-1 guard will remain in the ACC for his final collegiate season. As the Hokies' leading scorer last year with 13.4 points per game, he supplemented his line with averages of 2.6 rebounds, 2.5 three-pointers, and 0.9 assists in 30 minutes.
D'Angelo Russell    G    Ohio State     + Add To Watchlist
4/22/2015
Russell officially declared for the NBA Draft on Thursday, Ari Wasserman of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The move comes as little surprise as Russell is widely considered to be a top-five pick in June's draft. The guard excelled in his lone season at the college level, averaging 19.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per game while averaging nearly 34 minutes as he helped the Buckeyes advance past VCU before falling to Arizona in the NCAA Tournament.
Jordan Goodman    F    New Mexico     + Add To Watchlist
4/22/2015
Goodman (foot) will transfer from New Mexico, Geoff Grammer of the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Goodman had a solid freshman season, averaging 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in just 13.4 minutes per game before suffering a season-ending foot injury in February. The forward may miss the beginning of next season after undergoing surgery, but will likely look to land somewhere with an easier path to increased minutes when he returns to full health.
Kris Dunn    G    Providence     + Add To Watchlist
4/22/2015
Dunn will return to Providence for his junior season, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dunn, who would likely have been a mid-to-late first round pick, averaged 15.6 points and 7.5 assists per game while leading the Friars to the NCAA Tournament. While Dunn's injury history is a concern, a big junior season could vault him into consideration for a top 10 pick in 2016.
Caris LeVert    G    Michigan     + Add To Watchlist
4/21/2015
LeVert has announced he will return for his senior season, according to Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press.

Fantasy Analysis

LeVert suffered a foot injury in January and missed the rest of the season. His return is great news for the Wolverines.
Austin McBroom    G    Eastern Washington     + Add To Watchlist
4/20/2015
McBroom will transfer to Eastern Washington, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

McBroom spent four years at Saint Louis but will be immediately eligible for his fifth year with Eastern Washington for their 2015-16 campaign. He's in line to have a major role on his new team after averaging 20.2 minutes on the court per game with Saint Louis last season.
Marcus Foster    G        + Add To Watchlist
4/19/2015
Foster has committed to Creighton, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Foster was dismissed from Kansas State about a month ago, though the reasoning for the dismissal is still unclear. Because of this, we don't know if Foster will be subject to the standard one year sitting period for transfer students. When he is able to play, Foster is an extremely talented guard who will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Blue Jays.
