Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Mike LaTulip    G    Wright State    
LaTulip will transfer to Wright State and will be eligible immediately.

Fantasy Analysis

LaTulip, a transfer from Illinois, will continue his career as a player on the Wright State roster. The senior guard chose to redshirt the 2015-16 season and will look to increase his playing time in the upcoming season.
Terrell Allen    G       
Allen has committed to play at UCF, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Allen left Drexel as a freshman after averaging 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game during the 2015-16 season. He scored in double figures 14 times during 2015-16, and offers much to be desired in a young guard.
Ben Carter    F    Michigan State    
Carter will transfer to Michigan State and be eligible to play next season.

Fantasy Analysis

Carter is coming back from an ACL tear suffered at the end of January. He hopes to be ready to play by October. The 6-9 senior averaged 8.6 points and 6.0 rebounds for UNLV last season and could play a major role for the Spartans. Michigan State does not have much depth for forwards.
Brandone Francis    G    Florida    
Francis will transfer from Florida, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Francis was forced to sit out the 2014-15 season due to academic transcript issues. In his first season with the Gators in 2015-16, the 6-5 guard averaged 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds. He is likely leaving Florida to see an increased role, but he will need to improve his shooting if he wants to make an impact at another school. Francis shot only 20 percent from the field and 16 percent from three-point range last season.
Deonte Burton    G    Iowa State    
Burton has withdrawn from the 2016 NBA Draft, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Burton will return for his senior season at Iowa State, where the Cyclones will have to fill massive holes left by key seniors Georges Niang, Abdel Nader and Jameel McKay. The 6-4 guard was dominant at times in 2015-16, including a 19 point, five rebound performance against then third-ranked Oklahoma. Burton, along with other key players Monte Morris, Matt Thomas, and Nazareth Mitrou-Long, will need to show more consistency if the Cyclones are going to be competitive in the Big 12, but the upside is definitely there for the Marquette transfer.
Phil Cofer    F    Florida State    
Cofer (foot) is cleared to resume all basketball activities, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cofer underwent foot surgery in January, therefore missing the remainder of the Seminoles' 2015-16 campaign. The sophomore participated in 11 games during the season and averaged 3.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 0.2 assists with 12 minutes.
Michael Ojo    C    Florida State    
Ojo (knee) is cleared to resume all basketball activities, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ojo didn't record any playing time for the Seminoles during their 2015-16 season due to a meniscus tear. The center averaged 11.9 minutes per game in Florida State's 2013-14 season and will look to see similar numbers heading into his fifth year with the program.
Kennedy Meeks    F    North Carolina    
Meeks will return to the NCAA ranks for the 2016-17 season.

Fantasy Analysis

Meeks will return to North Carolina, providing promise of improvement on his 2015-16 averages of 9.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. With the departures of players like Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige, Meeks figures to be an integral part of the Tar Heels' success this upcoming season.
Michael Gilmore    F    VCU    
Gilmore has elected to transfer from VCU, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Gilmore was a reserve forward for the Rams during his two years there. He averaged 3.2 PPG and 2.8 RPG in 11 minutes per game in the 2015-16 season. Gilmore will have two years of eligibility remaining once he decides where to transfer.
Kameron Chatman    F    Michigan    
Chatman has decided to transfer from Michigan, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Chatman has two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-8 guard saw his minutes significantly drop after his freshman season, going from 15 minutes per game to just seven minutes per game this year. He averaged 2.8 point and 1.4 rebounds per game. He has not yet decided where he will transfer to.
D.J. Foreman    F       
Foreman will transfer to Saint Louis, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Foreman has two years of eligibility remaining. With Rutgers as a sophomore, he averaged 7.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
V.J. Beachem    F    Notre Dame    
Beachem withdrew his name from the 2016 NBA Draft to return to Notre Dame for the 2016-17 season.

Fantasy Analysis

When Beachem originally declared for the NBA Draft, he did not hire an agent, leaving him the option to return. Beachem, a forward, averaged 12.0 PPG and 3.9 RPG in 31 minutes per game during the 2015-16 season. He could take on a bigger role due to the graduation of forward Zach Auguste.
Spike Albrecht    G       
Albrecht (hip) will transfer to Purdue and is set to be eligible for the 2016-17 season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

As of December it was reported that Albrecht's playing career was over due to persistent hip issues, but he will give it one more go next season at Purdue. In his lone season as a regular starter in 2014-15, Albrecht averaged 7.5 points and 3.9 assists over 32.0 minutes per game.
LaRon Smith    F    Auburn    
Smith committed to Auburn on Monday after deciding in April to transfer from Bethune-Cookman, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Smith will provide a shot-blocking presence in Auburn's frontcourt as he heads into his senior season. He averaged 7.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game throughout his junior campaign with Bethune-Cookman, but struggled from the free-throw line.
Paul Jackson    G    Eastern Kentucky    
Jackson is leaving Eastern Kentucky as a transfer, Andrew Force of OVCHoops.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jackson may still be upset that he lost his starting spot in the middle of the year, but either way he was still a major piece in the Eastern Kentucky lineup. Jackson finished with the third most assists of any OVC player last season. He has yet to decide where he will play next, but Jackson will have to sit out next season before becoming eligible.
