The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Quincy McKnight    G       
McKnight will transfer from Sacred Heart in pursuit of another program, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

McKnight is coming off a breakout season at Sacred Heart, averaging 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game. McKnight will now have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out one season at his new school of choice.
Jaylen Johnson    F    Louisville    
Johnson announced Monday he will hire an agent and enter the 2017 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson's minutes fluctuated throughout the regular season as he commonly split time in Louisville's deep frontcourt rotation. However, the 6-foot-9 junior believes he has shown enough potential to leave school early and pursue a professional career. Johnson averaged 8.0 points and 5.8 rebounds over 20.5 minutes per game while shooting a very impressive 59 percent from the field.
Theo Pinson    F    North Carolina    
Pinson will enter the 2017 NBA Draft, but he will not hire an agent, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pinson played over 20 minutes per game for the first time in his career at North Carolina and averaged 6.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists over the course of his junior season. A defensive specialist, the most likely outcome for Pinson is a return to school for his senior year, but he will still test out the draft waters in search of some feedback regarding his stock first.
Joel Berry    G    North Carolina    
Berry will enter the 2017 NBA Draft without hiring an agent, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Following his first season as North Carolina's primary floor leader, Berry will test the NBA Draft waters but not fully commit to leaving the program early. Berry averaged 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game while shooting 38 percent from three in his junior season, but he lacks many of the desired measurements for a modern-day NBA point guard. He'll have one month to go through the process before having to make a final decision on whether or not he will return for his final season as a Tar Heel.
Bam Adebayo    F    Kentucky    
Adebayo will remain in the 2017 NBA Draft upon signing with an agent, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Two weeks after declaring without an agent, the freshman big man out of Kentucky will now proceed with one, effectively ending his college career. Adebayo is expected to be a mid-to-late first-round draft pick, as the 6-foot-10 enter averaged 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in his lone college season.
Stefan Gonzalez    G    UC Davis    
Gonzalez will transfer to UC Davis, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After failing to record a start during his two years as Saint Mary's, averaging 2.8 points across 6.2 minutes per game last season, Gonzalez has opted to transfer to UC Davis, likely in pursuit of a more significant role. That being said, he must sit out a year before he's eligible to play again.
Jaylen Brantley    G    Massachusetts    
Brantley will transfer to Massachusettes, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After playing two seasons with Maryland, where he averaged only 4.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 16.8 minutes per game, Brantley has opted to transfer to UMass, likely in hopes of a more significant role. He will be immediately eligible to take the floor with his new team next season.
Hamidou Diallo    G    Kentucky    
Diallo has opted to declare for the NBA Draft but will not hire an agent.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-5 freshman guard didn't play last season, which makes his decision to declare for the draft probably one of curiosity for the NBA process, rather than a legitimate option for him. That being said, he's a projected late first round selection in the 2018 NBA Draft, so his professional aspirations seemingly aren't misguided.
Ryan Fazekas    F    Valparaiso    
Fazekas will transfer to Valparaiso, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Fazekas spent his first two years with Providence, but saw his playing time fall off from 18.8 minutes to 11.8 from his freshman to sophomore seasons. That likely prompted him to look for an opportunity elsewhere, with Valparaiso now selected as his next landing spot. Fazekas will have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to the current NCAA transfer rules, but will then be eligible ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. He should offer Valparaiso an effective shooter with impressive size for a guard at 6-foot-8.
Peter Kiss    G    Rutgers    
Kiss will transfer from Quinnipiac to Rutgers, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Kiss had a successful freshman campaign with Quinnipiac, averaging 13.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 29.8 minutes per game. Kiss will have to sit out the 2017-18 season per NCAA transfer rules.
Matt Morgan    F    Cornell    
Morgan has declared for the 2017 NBA Draft, but won't hire an agent, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Morgan finished the 2016-17 campaign picking up All-Ivy league second team honors, posting impressive averages of 18.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 32.4 minutes. He was far away the Big Red's best offensive threat and is also one of the conference's elite players, so he's opted to enter his name into the draft. He'll be able to work out for, and interview with, NBA teams during the pre-draft process, but because he hasn't hired an agent, Morgan still has the ability to drop out prior to the May 24 deadline.
Steven Enoch    C    Louisville    
Enoch will transfer to Louisville, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Enoch spent his first two collegiate seasons with Connecticut, playing just a minor role off the bench with averages of 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds across 12.1 minutes. While he'll have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to the current NCAA transfer rules, Enoch will then be available for the 2018-19 season and will have two years of eligibility left. Current Louisville centers Mangkok Mathiang and Anas Mahmoud are slated to have graduated by that point in time, which could allow Enoch to battle for a bigger rotation role right out of the gates.
Isiaha Mike    F       
Mike has committed to SMU for his final three years of eligibility, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Mike will have to sit out one season before seeing time on the court with the Mustangs, but the 6-foot-8 forward could be a valuable contributor after his 11.3 points and 5.8 rebounds in over 28 minutes per game as a freshman with the Dukes.
Frank Jackson    G    Duke    
Jackson has declared for the NBA Draft but will not hire an agent, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jackson originally planned to return to Duke for his sophomore season, and that still is a possibility once he gets feedback from NBA teams. If he does return to school after posting 10.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game, a decision that has to be made by May 24, he would join Grayson Allen in a dynamic backcourt for the Blue Devils.
Kevin Mickle    F       
Mickle will transfer away from Florida Gulf Coast to, The News-Press reports.

Fantasy Analysis

In two seasons with FGCU, though he averaged over 10 minutes per game, Mickle started only five out of 63 games. The senior forward will not have to sit out a season as a graduate transfer.
