On3 released its transfer portal rankings for the 2022 cycle. There are 150 names ranked, and it is formatted similar to a high school ranking regarding stars and ratings.

This update includes 16 five-stars, nine players ranked with a 99-grade, and 15 of the top-25 still available.

On3’s 2022 Transfer Portal Rankings

The basketball player rankings scale is as follows:

  • Five-star prospects have grades 98-100, four-star recruits have grades 90-97, and three-stars have grades 80-89
  • The first 16 prospects are five stars with a rating of 98 or higher. This number is relative per class and not indicative of every cycle.

There are 15 of the top 25 still available

Players have until June 1 to pull out of the NBA Draft process. While we fully expect players like Patrick Baldwin, Jr. to stay in the draft, most players will look to come back to school. Many of the top-25 guys are focusing almost entirely on workouts and training sessions for the draft. So this number should not be alarming at this time.

However, a quick look through the available players shows a healthy number of wings and forwards available. No. 14 ranked Tyrese Hunter, and No. 21 ranked Grant Sherfield are the only available point guards, and No. 17 ranked Osun Osunniyi and No. 22 ranked Efe Abogidi are the available centers. The remaining 11 players are all wings or forwards.

Available shooting guards are No. 1 Isiaih Mosley (junior), No. 4 Ricky Council, IV (sophomore), and No. 20 AJ Green (grad transfer).

Available small forwards in the top-25 are No. 8 Kevin McCuller (junior), No. 9 Josh Minott (freshman), and No. 19 Emoni Bates (freshman).

Available power forwards are No. 2 Patrick Baldwin, Jr. (freshman), No. 5 Kenneth Lofton, Jr. (sophomore) No. 13, Pete Nance (grad transfer), and No. 15 Matthew Mayer (grad transfer).
