Canadian 2018 NCAA Transfer List

There’s over 480 NCAA Transfers to this date with more coming almost by the hour. The number is expected to reach well over 750.

Coaching changes, poor fits, coaches recruiting over players, players choosing the wrong level, moving up or down in levels are all some of the factors that go into student-athletes making the transfer decision.

Considering the number of total Canadians playing NCAA basketball, the ratio is not so bad; the majority seem to be in good fits for the time being.

Here are the total number of Canadian players from this past season on both the men’s and women’s side.

Total men D1: 100 (112 on team rosters)
Total men D2: 33 (40 on team  rosters)
Total women D1:  83 (100 on team rosters)
Total women D2: 19 (20 on team rosters)
