Stanford Robinson    G    Rhode Island     + Add To Watchlist
5/19/2015
Robinson announced Tuesday that he will transfer to Rhode Island, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Robinson made the announcement via his official Twitter page roughly two months after deciding to leave Tom Crean's program at Indiana. A former top 100 recruit, Robinson saw limited action this season and averaged just 3.0 points per game. Assuming he's not granted a waiver, Robinson will sit out the 2015-16 campaign and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Jonah Bolden    F    UCLA     + Add To Watchlist
5/19/2015
Bolden will miss 6-to-8 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bolden, who did not play in 2014-15 after being ruled ineligible, should be good to go by the time next season begins. Considered a top 100 recruit by ESPN, the 6-9 Bolden figures to factor into the rotation for coach Steve Alford, particularly given the departure of breakout freshman Kevon Looney.
Derrick Gordon    G    Seton Hall     + Add To Watchlist
5/18/2015
Gordon will transfer to Seton Hall, CBS Sports reports. He will be eligible for 2015-16 because he has already graduated.

Fantasy Analysis

Gordon will take Sterling Gibbs' place in the lineup after Gibbs left for Connecticut. The Pirates have a burgeoning sophomore class, so Gordon - the first openly gay player in Division 1 basketball - will serve as a mentor and distributor.

5/16/2015
Gibbs has decided to transfer to UConn for his final season, Jeff Borzello of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Gibbs initially indicated he would return to Seton Hall for his senior season, but later changed his mind. As a junior, he averaged 16.3 points, 3.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds in about 34 minutes. Considered one of the top transfers this season, he'll likely slot into a starting role for a revamped UConn squad in 2015-16.

5/15/2015
Harris has committed to transfer to Auburn, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Harris averaged 9.9 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 42.1 percent from the field for the Friars last season. As a graduate transfer, Harris will be eligible to play right away for Bruce Pearl, who coached his brother, Tobias, at Tennessee. Harris joins an up-and-coming Auburn program that will bring in seven freshmen next season, including four players rated as four-star prospects by Rivals.com.

5/13/2015
Abrams is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery and will participate in summer practice according to head coach John Groce, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Abrams tore his ACL prior to the 2014-2015 season, but it looks like he will be ready to go well before this season starts. During his junior season, Abrams averaged 10.7 points and 3.2 assists per game, and figures to improve on those numbers as one of Illinois' top options this year.

5/12/2015
Hoetzel will transfer to San Diego State, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Devin Davis    F    Indiana     + Add To Watchlist
5/12/2015
Davis was cited for marijuana possession Monday night, CBS 4 in Indianapolis reports. He has been suspended indefinitely.

Fantasy Analysis

Davis was only cited for the possession of marijuana and was not arrested. Regardless, he's been suspended from all team activities until further notice. Junior forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea was also present at the time of the incident, but the team is yet to decide whether he, too, will face any discipline.

Fantasy Analysis

Burnett averaged seven points, two rebounds and 0.6 assists in just over 17 minutes as a freshman last season. The move to Ole Miss will likely open up more minutes, but he'll have to sit out a season before being allowed to contribute to his new team.
