    Don't know that you can readily find such a list by school. Site below will bring up schools by conference but you'll have to further click on each school in the conference for details. https://247sports.com/Season/2020-Basketball/TransferPortal/#Big-Ten I think Inside The Hall has been publishing a list for the B1G on a periodic basis.

    Great day to be a Hoosier. Coach Moren lands Paige Price and Archie reels in Logan Duncomb. Who's next?

    IMHO he should view it as a positive because he won't be expected to be our next center. Duncomb is a center in the traditional sense so Kaufman can play the wing.

    2021 General Recruiting Thread

    From Stock Risers, more background on Gabe Wiznitzer, a name that just surfaced last month. Hargrave’s Gabe Wiznitzer had himself quite the high school season and it led to a breakout in his recruitment. Named one of the top players at this year’s HoopHall, he landed himself plenty of offers and has absolutely no shortage of suitors. “Xavier, Providence, Cincinnati, Clemson, and DePaul are on me pretty hard,” Wiznitzer told Stockrisers.com. In addition, he said that Kansas State, Ohio State and Indiana are some of the newer schools to reach out and show interest in the 6-foot-11 big. As far as visits go, he had scheduled an official visit to Providence scheduled for March. Due to the Corona Virus, that was forced to get cancelled but it hasn’t stopped Ed Cooley’s hard pursuit of one of his top targets. “Coach Cooley and I have been talking on the phone,” he said. Plus, he has a scheduled virtual call next week with Cooley and some members of his staff. In addition, Xavier, one of the newest programs to offer will conduct their virtual visit with Wiznitzer soon as will DePaul’s staff. A newer development for Wiznitzer is the potential option to reclassify to 2020. “I could potentially go 2020 if I find the right situation and spot where I’m gonna be used right away and developed,” he said. He’s still open to it but clearly is focused on 2021 as more schools are still getting involved. There are some schools that would take him for either class. As far as his decision timetable: “As far as cutting things I’m not sure yet, gonna see if AAU happens and if there are any live periods. I also can’t take official visits right now due to the virus so I’m not sure about when I will decide.”

    (2021) - Paige Price to IUWBB

    Comment from Price on committing in the midst of the pandemic without ever visiting campus: "We had a virtual official and the video I got sent had girls scrapping and large passionate crowds and it felt like where I am from in Melbourne from that point of view, I love fan bases that are all in."

    For those who expected otherwise -- Kentucky freshman Keion Brooks Jr. will return to Kentucky for his sophomore year, his father Keion Brooks Sr. told CatsPause.com Monday. “We’re still in the process of getting feedback but we know what we’re going to do as far as coming back,” Brooks said. “That’s more for how to get better and improve on what they’re looking for as far as the next level.” As a freshman during the 2019-20 season, Brooks averaged 4.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 steals per game in 31 games played. Brooks averaged 15.1 minutes per game, starting in six games. “They’ll see a better version of him,” Brooks Sr. said on what fans can expect from Brooks Jr. next season. “More of what guys in high school saw him do. He’ll be more confident. He’s still going to work hard and fight and be that motor guy all the time and he’ll be a kid that wants to win, wants to be there and definitely wants to get better. A better version that we are able to depend on as far as leadership.” Among Brooks’ fellow classmates, Johnny Juzang is transferring while Kahlil Whitney left Kentucky in the middle of the season and has yet to announce his future plans.
