Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Demetrius Henry    F    La Salle     + Add To Watchlist
7/6/2015
Henry will transfer to La Salle, NBC Sports reports. He put up 6.0 points and 3.6 rebounds for South Carolina before getting suspended for the rest of the season for conduct detrimental to the team in February.

Fantasy Analysis

Henry will have to sit out the 2015-16 season and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. He scored in double digits five times in his sophomore season, but was consistently in foul trouble. The 6-9 center may find more room in the paint in the A10 when he becomes eligible.
Dajuan Coleman    F    Syracuse     + Add To Watchlist
7/6/2015
Coleman (knee) indicated that he had no pain after a long rehab process, Syracuse.com reports. The 6-9 center has not played since undergoing surgery in January, 2014.

Fantasy Analysis

Coleman was a reserve in his first two seasons with the Orange. The Syracuse legacy player (Derrick's son) averaged 4.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13.0 minutes in 13 games in 2013-14. He could be a surprise producer for the Orange in the center of the 2-3 zone.
Arthur Edwards    G    New Mexico     + Add To Watchlist
7/6/2015
Edwards will reportedly transfer to Alabama, the Recruit Scoop reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Edwards will be able to play right away, as he recently graduated this spring. The soon to be senior spent his last two years with the Lobos, but never really became a big part of the rotation. During the 2014-15 season, he finished with averages of 3.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 0.5 steals over 12 minutes per game. His decision to transfer was supposedly a mutual decision, as he's looking to gain more playing time with his new team.
Ahmaad Rorie    G    Oregon     + Add To Watchlist
7/3/2015
Rorie will transfer from Oregon, 247 Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The point guard announced his intent to transfer Friday, and at this point it's unclear which schools he's considering. Last season, he averaged 4.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18.8 minutes per game. Rorie will likely have to sit out the 2015-16 season unless he's granted a waiver by the NCAA.
Davon Dillard    G    California     + Add To Watchlist
7/1/2015
Dillard has decommitted from California and will enroll at Oklahoma State, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dillard had previously committed to California and has not given a reason behind his decision to change schools.
New Williams    G    Auburn     + Add To Watchlist
7/1/2015
Williams underwent surgery to remove a lesion from his knee during the offseason, radio broadcaster Bradley Mason reports.

Fantasy Analysis

It remains unclear how long Williams will need to recover, although he may be limited on the court during his first season with Auburn regardless, as he enters college as an undersized shooting guard standing at 6-2. With his injury concern and lack of experience, Williams won't likely have much of an impact until he has a couple more years under his belt.
Kyle Washington    C    Cincinnati     + Add To Watchlist
7/1/2015
Washington has decided to transfer to Cincinnati, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Washington spent his first two years of college at NC State and will now have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to the NCAA's transfer rules. The forward's minutes tapered off during his previous season at NC State which is likely the reasoning behind his move to a new school, although he should be able to extend the court with Cincinnati after making 51 percent of his shots behind the arc last season.
Terrence Samuel    G    Penn State     + Add To Watchlist
7/1/2015
Samuel will transfer from UConn to Penn State, Zags Blog reports. He will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2015-16 season.

Fantasy Analysis

Samuel is a 6-4 guard who played 20.2 minutes for the Huskies last season. He only averaged 3.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists, but could get a huge bump in usage with the Nittany Lions when he becomes eligible.
Paschal Chukwu    C    Syracuse     + Add To Watchlist
6/28/2015
Chukwu will transfer from Providence to Syracuse, CBS Sports reports. The 7-2 center will not play in 2015-16, but will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Fantasy Analysis

Chukwu barely broke into the Friar rotation as a freshman. In 9.9 minutes, he averaged 2.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks. When he becomes eligible, Chukwu should be a nice addition to the center of the 2-3 Orange zone.
Wayne Selden, Jr.    G    Kansas     + Add To Watchlist
6/27/2015
Selden led Team USA with 22 points and 10 rebounds in the win over Canada in the World University Games on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Team USA is mainly made of Kansas players. Frank Mason (15 points, 11 assists) and Perry Ellis (18 points) also played well. The 6-5 guard could be in for a breakout junior season, but this is no more than exhibition game.
Xavier Johnson    F    Colorado     + Add To Watchlist
6/26/2015
Johnson underwent surgery to repair his torn left Achilles tendon, the AP reports. There was no immediate timetable for his return. Coach Tad Boyle said, "This is one of those injuries where the timetable is pretty broad, so we're not ruling out Xavier's return next year."

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson is heading into his senior season after providing 10.3 points and 5.6 rebounds in 24.3 minutes last year. He could redshirt since he will likely miss the majority of the season. The team may lean on redshirt sophomore George King to take some of Johnson's minutes.
Chris Obekpa    C        + Add To Watchlist
6/24/2015
Obekpa has decided to leave St. Johns, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Obekpa provided a strong defensive presence at the rim during his tenure at St. Johns but will ultimately choose to spend his final year of eligibility at another program. St. Johns will be left in disarray with Rysheed Jordan also electing to leave the program earlier in the offseason. As for Obekpa, he should select another school in short order but is expected to miss the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer regulations.
Eli Carter    G    Boston College     + Add To Watchlist
6/22/2015
Carter will play his senior season at Boston College, CBS Sports reports. He will be eligible for the 2015-16 season as a graduate transfer.

Fantasy Analysis

The well-traveled Carter began his collegiate career at Rutgers, then transferred to Florida. His time in Gainesville was interrupted by a broken foot. He averaged 14.9 points as a freshman with the Scarlet Knights. The 6-2 guard could get plenty of shots with the Eagles with Olivier Hanlan moving on.
Ge'Lawn Guyn    G    East Tennessee State     + Add To Watchlist
6/21/2015
Guyn will transfer to East Tennessee State and be immediately eligible, Scout.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Guyn has been a reserve for Cincinnati for the majority of the last four years. He was limited to two games by a finger injury last year. In Guyn's last full season in 2013-14, the 6-2 senior averaged 4.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 19.0 minutes.
Devonte Graham    G    Kansas     + Add To Watchlist
6/19/2015
Graham will miss the World University Games after partially tearing a tendon in his quad , the Kansas City Star reports. He will be out three weeks before he can start his rehab.

Fantasy Analysis

Graham provided 5.7 points in 17.8 points off the Jayhawk bench as a freshman. He had 17 points in the final game of the season, the loss to Wichita State in the NCAA tournament. While it is a shame that he will miss the World University Games in Korea, the 6-2 sophomore should be ready for the 2015-16 season.
