Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Je'lon Hornbeak    G        + Add To Watchlist
4/15/2014
Hornbeak will transfer from Oklahoma, CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello reports.

Fantasy Analysis

He will have to sit out a year, and then will have two years remaining of eligibility.
Royce Woolridge    G        + Add To Watchlist
4/15/2014
Woolridge will transfer from Washington State, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reports.

Fantasy Analysis

He went from averaging 11 points in 2012-13 to just 7.3 points in 2013-14, so it's no surprise that he's looking for a better situation where he can improve his output and get back on the radar of NBA scouts. It's still not clear what school Woolridge will play for next.
Branden Dawson    F    Michigan State     + Add To Watchlist
4/15/2014
Dawson will return to Michigan State for his senior season, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This is excellent news for the Spartans, as they will lose a lot of talent to this year's draft, and Dawson should be one of the leading contributors for the team in the 2014-15 season.
Jabari Parker    F    Duke     + Add To Watchlist
4/15/2014
Parker will decide whether to enter this year's NBA Draft on Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Parker plans to meet with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski on Tuesday to sort out his future. An All-American selection, Parker led the Blue Devils in both points (19.1) and rebounds (8.7) as a freshman. Should he opt for the NBA, Parker is expected to be a top-three selection.
Nick Johnson    G    Arizona     + Add To Watchlist
4/15/2014
Johnson will declare for the NBA Draft on Tuesday, Sportando reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson was named Pac-10 Player of the Year after averaging 16.3 points and 4.1 rebounds for Arizona during his junior campaign. The shooting guard's draft stock didn't figure to benefit much from returning for his senior season, so Johnson will likely end up a late-first or early-second round selection this summer.
Willie Cauley-Stein    F    Kentucky     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Stein (ankle) will return to Kentucky for his junior season, Kyle Tucker of The Courier-Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Stein, a projected first-round pick, will return to a crowded Kentucky frontcourt, rather than ply his trade in the NBA. Coming off a season that saw him average 2.9 blocks per game, the 7-footer will likely be the Wildcats' starting center, and should be a first-round draft pick in 2015.
Roschon Prince    F    Long Beach State     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Prince will transfer from USC to Long Beach State, the Press-Telegram reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a freshman, Prince averaged just 11 minutes per game, so he is likely looking for more playing time at a smaller school. In addition, he is a Long Beach native, which may have been a factor in his decision making process as well. Prince will have to sit out a season due to transfer regulations, but should be a focal point on the team once he becomes eligible in 2015.
George Marshall    G    Marshall     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Marshall will transfer to South Dakota State, ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Freshman Bronson Koenig is a highly regarded recruit for the Badgers, and he was continuing to eat into Marshall's playing time. Marshall likely saw the writing on the wall and understood that he would not be the point guard of the future. He will have ample playing time with the Jackrabbits after he sits out a season to comply with transfer rules.
Gary Harris    G    Michigan State     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Harris will leave school after his sophomore season and enter the NBA Draft, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The news confirms earlier speculation that Harris would leave, and does not come as a huge surprise. Projected as a mid-first round pick, Harris could potentially jump into the lottery after a great year, averaging 16.7 points per game last season.
Nigel Williams-Goss    G    Washington     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Williams-Goss will return to Washington for his sophomore season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a freshman, Williams-Goss averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game for the Huskies. He was a highly regarded recruit out of high school, but did not have the season worthy of a one-and-done. Entering his sophomore season, Williams-Goss figures to be in the running for conference player of the year, especially if he can make a large jump in the off-season.
Ryan Anderson    F    Boston College     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Anderson will transfer from Boston College and already has three visits with Iowa State, Indiana, and Arizona scheduled, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a junior with BC, Anderson posted 14.3 points and 7.3 rebounds, in 31.4 minutes per game. Clearly, playing time was not the issue with this transfer, but he may simply want to play for a team that can win more than 7 games in a season. He will have to sit out a year since he has not yet graduated, but he will provide another quality big man to any team he chooses to transfer to.
Montrezl Harrell    F    Louisville     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Harrell will return to Louisville for his junior season, ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Harrell projected as a late first-round pick, so it is somewhat surprising to hear he will be returning to Louisville for another season. Even thought the Cardinals will lose two stars in Russ Smith and Luke Hancock, they will return plenty of talent, and with the addition of some highly regarded freshmen, the team should again be highly competitive next season and in the NCAA tournament.
Glenn Robinson III    F    Michigan     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Robinson will declare for the NBA draft, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

It was unclear if Robinson would return to Ann Arbor to attempt another late March run, or declare for the NBA, however this news clears things up. As a prospect, Robinson is fairly controversial, with his potential stock ranging from a late lottery pick, to all the way in the 2nd round of the draft. With both Robinson and teammate Nik Stauskas declaring for the NBA draft, the Wolverines will have to replace two of their most talented players from their Big 10 championship team last year.
Jerami Grant    F    Syracuse     + Add To Watchlist
4/14/2014
Grant will enter the NBA Draft, forgoing his final two years of eligibility, ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The sophomore averaged over 12 points per game and nearly seven rebounds for the Orange this year. Grant is currently projected as a mid-to-late first round pick.
Adonis Filer    G    Clemson     + Add To Watchlist
4/13/2014
Filer will transfer from Clemson, Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Filer averaged 3.9 points, 1.3 boards, and 1.2 assists in 15 minutes his sophomore season. However, he saw reduced minutes and reduced production this season, and will likely transfer somewhere that will allow him to contribute more.
