Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Spencer Mathis    F       
Mathis has decided to transfer to Division II Western State Colorado University, WSCU athletics announced.

Fantasy Analysis

Mathis played in 23 games for Northern Colorado last season, and is looking to play more for WSCU. Due to NCAA transfer rules, he will not have to sit out a year.
Chris Manning    F       
Manning will transfer from Mount St. Mary's, Greg Swatek of The Frederick News-Post reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a sophomore, Manning only played in 13 games, playing 1.9 minutes per game. It seems unlikely Manning will go to another mid-major if he's searching for more playing time, and his options will be Division II schools.
K.J. Malveau    G       
Malveau has decided to transfer from Texas State, Joe Vozzelli of the San Marcos Daily Recap reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As a freshman, Malveau played in all 31 of Texas State's games, coming off the bench in each game, averaging 8.1 minutes and 1.8 points per game. He will be transferring for playing time, and could be a valuable guard with a high-ceiling and three years of eligibility for a mid-major.
Kwesi Abakah    F       
Abakah will transfer from Northeastern, Corey Evans of hoopseen.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-8 forward averaged 1.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in 13.0 minutes per contest in his junior season at Northeastern. He might not attract a lot of interest, but he will be eligible to play immediately next season as a graduate transfer.
Justus Stanback    F       
Stanback will transfer from IUPUI, Corey Evans of hoopseen.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-8 forward failed to see the court this past season. In his sophomore year with the Jaguars, however, Stanback averaged 2.4 points in just 8.8 minutes per game. He will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer.
Jodan Price    F       
Price will transfer from Eastern Michigan, Jake Stanbrough of INB Recruits reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-8 forward averaged 4.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game for the Eagles last season. Price hasnít announced where he will play next season, but will be eligible to play immediately.
Darius Austin    G    UMKC    
Austin will transfer from UMKC, Scott Burgess of Prep Hoops reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Austin brings impressive size for the guard position at 6-6 and 220 pounds. He averaged 7.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 25.4 minutes per game for the Kangaroos last season. Austin has yet to announce his intentions for next year, but figures to attract a fair amount of interest as he has shown to be a proven contributor.
De'Andre Davis    F    Grand Canyon    
Davis will transfer from Grand Canyon, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-1 guard out of Austin, Texas averaged 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 16.5 minutes per game this past season with Grand Canyon. Davis has yet to announce where he plans to transfer, but whatever team signs him will add a nice rotation player.
Chinanu Onuaku    C    Louisville    
Onuaku confirmed Wednesday evening that he would remain in the NBA Draft, The Courier-Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Louisville coach Rick Pitino had indicated to reporters earlier in the day that Onuaku would be going pro, but the 6-10 center later refuted those claims, saying that an official decision would come down later in the evening. Some extra time may have passed, but the reported decision never changed, as Onuaku will be headed for the professional level after just two years of college. Physically, there's little question that he's NBA ready, although he may need to refine some of the more technical aspects of his game before seeing consistent playing time.
Alec Peters    F    Valparaiso    
Peters has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will return for his senior season at Valparaiso, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Peters consistently stuffed the stat sheet during his junior campaign with the Crusaders, averaging 18.4 points and 8.5 boards per contest while shooting 50.5 percent from the field. After testing the NBA Draft waters up until the last minute, he ultimately decided to return to school in an effort to lead Valparaiso to their first NCAA tournament win during his tenure with the program. With the early departure of Oakland's Kay Felder, look for Peters to be the early frontrunner for Horizon League Player of the Year honors. If Peters can keep up consistent shooting while averaging roughly a double-double per contest, there's a chance he finds his way into the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft.
Melo Trimble    G    Maryland    
Trimble will return to Maryland for his junior season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After a sensational freshman campaign, Trimble took a bit of a step back in his sophomore season scoring-wise, going from 16.2 points per game to 14.8. He did, however, go from 3.0 assists per game to 4.9. Trimble will be the floor leader for Maryland for the third straight season, as he looks to head a Terrapin squad that lost a few key pieces heading into the 2016-17 season.
Andrew White    F    Nebraska    
White will withdraw from the NBA Draft and return to Nebraska for his senior season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

White had a great junior season with averages of 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, and his return to college is great news for the Cornhuskers. With the departure of leading scorer Shavon Shields, White is set to lead the team's offensive attack as they look to turn things around in the 2016-17 season.
Brevin Pritzl    G    Wisconsin    
Pritzl (foot) is seeking a medical redshirt for the 2015-16 season, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pritzl, a highly recruited freshman guard, played in just one game (four minutes total) for the Badgers in his inaugural campaign. He was limited by the ailment early in the season, and then re-injured himself during a December practice. Upon returning to practice, Pritzl then shifted his efforts to the scout team, but did not see further game action, likely in an effort to preserve the year of eligibility. If his medical redshirt is accepted, Pritzl will be able to contribute four full years to Greg Gard and the Badgers.
Caleb Swanigan    F    Purdue    
Swanigan will leave the NBA Draft to return for his sophomore year, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Swanigan averaged 10.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 26 minutes per game as a freshman. The 6-foot-9 forward is expected to take on an even bigger role for Purdue next year with the departure of seven-footer A.J. Hammons and guard Rapheal Davis.
Chinanu Onuaku    C    Louisville    
Rick Pitino said Onuaku will stay in the 2016 NBA Draft, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Onuaku averaged 9.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 1.6 assists in 25 minutes per game as a sophomore. The 6-foot-10 center's size and defensive potential will likely make him a second-round pick. In the big man's absence, look for players such as Mangok Mathiang, Ray Spalding, Anas Mahmoud and Jaylen Johnson to enter 2016-17 in search of bigger roles.
