College Basketball Transfer Portal Reaching An All-Time High
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The college basketball NCAA Transfer Portal has reached an all-time high of entries and the tournament hasn’t even ended yet.
Entering the Final Four and National Championship game this weekend, the NCAA Transfer Portal is constantly getting basketball players entering their name in it.
The head basketball coach of Emporia State, a Division II program, tweeted some staggering statistics about the portal in both men’s and women’s basketball.
