We are one week into the transfer portal opening. Starting last Monday, non-graduate, one-time transfers were able to enter without penalty. As of 8:30 PM EST on Tuesday, over 700 players have already submitted their names.

The week prior, things started to warm up a little around the transfer portal as graduate transfers have been able to enter the portal without penalty as soon as their season ends. Just over 100 players entered prior to March 13.

We are about to enter the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The NIT and the CBI post-season tournaments are also still playing. As teams continue to lose, more names will go into the transfer portal. The window for players to submit their names into the portal will be open for 60 days from March 13.

To help navigate things some, here are the top players that entered the transfer portal on Tuesday, March 21.
