Transfers have existed in college basketball since the beginning of the sport, but they have quickly exploded to levels never before seen.

There are more than 1,400 players in the NCAA’s transfer portal – which was created about 2.5 years ago to better facilitate the process for athletes and coaches alike – and some of them have the potential to make an immediate impact at a new program.

In fact, the portal has become a go-to venue for coaches to completely turn over their rosters in one offseason. With that in mind, HawgBeat decided to take a look at transfers across the SEC.

As of May 12, the conference has seen 64 scholarship players enter the portal from its 14 programs and another 48 players transfer in this year. Every team in the SEC has landed at least one transfer and all but one – Alabama – has seen at least one player leave its program via the portal.

(That could potentially change for the Crimson Tide, who would be one over the scholarship limit if Joshua Primo and Jaden Shackelford each return for another season. Both have declared for the NBA Draft while also preserving their college eligibility.)

However, it’s worth mentioning that the high number of transfers has also been effected by the NCAA’s decision to grant blanket eligibility relief to all players. That means seniors can return to school for another year.

Included in the SEC’s 64 transfers are 15 seniors who are pursuing that extra year of eligibility elsewhere. Several of the incoming transfers have also taken advantage of that rule to get a year in a major conference.

About half of the players leaving SEC programs are transferring down to a smaller conference, with the other half either undecided or landing at another power conference. The SEC has also added more transfers from power conferences (28) than those from a smaller conference (20). That includes five players who transferred within the SEC:

~Tye Fagan: Georgia –> Ole Miss
~Ethan Henderson: Arkansas –> Texas A&M
~Xavier Pinson: Missouri –> LSU
~Justin Powell: Auburn –> Tennessee
~Jaxson Robinson: Texas A&M –> Arkansas
~Desi Sills: Arkansas –> Auburn

The two charts below are a complete breakdown of how many transfers each SEC team has lost and brought in this year. Under them is a player-by-player breakdown that includes each guy’s statistics, accomplishments and other tidbits…
