Hours after the 2024 NCAA tournament field was announced, every team in the country had to quickly turn its focus to next season. The transfer window for men's basketball opened March 18, and almost 300 players went in on the first day. By the time the portal closed, more than 2,000 players had entered.

It's a different year for transfers, too. The two-time transfer rule is out the window -- everyone is eligible to play immediately -- the NIL landscape continues to grow, and this will be the final offseason impacted by the "COVID year." Student-athletes earned an extra year of eligibility because of COVID-19's impact on the 2020-21 season, but next season will be the fifth year for those players.

The transfer window also closed for all players May 1. May 29 was the last date for any player in the NBA draft, who also retained his college eligibility, to decide whether to return for another year. Now, we're mostly waiting for commitments from the players who haven't yet announced one.

1. Kadary Richmond, 6-6, PG, Sr., Seton Hall Pirates
Richmond is a difficult matchup due to his size and ability to play through contact. The first-team All-Big East guard averaged 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.1 assists. Went for 21 points, 13 boards and five assists in the NIT title game.
