Five Players To Watch In The Transfer Portal

Isaac Jack, Buffalo

At 6-11, 251 lbs., the British Columbia native is a high-upside player with raw talent. As a freshman at Buffalo, he averaged 6 points and 4 rebounds per game. Ideally, Vandy fans would prefer to see an experienced veteran at this position, but the coaching staff is visiting with Jack this weekend so they must really like what they’ve seen.

Jonathan Pierre, Nova Southeastern

Pierre is a 6’9” playmaking wing with deep shooting range. He helped lead the Sharks to an undefeated season and a Division II title. Yet to turn 20 years old, he still has two years of eligibility left. Vandy is one of 80 teams that have reached out to him, here’s hoping that list has narrowed down a bit.

Caleb Mills, Florida State

At 6-5, 180 lbs., Mills could certainly help Vanderbilt. In Tallahassee this past season, he appeared in 32 games with 31 starts and finished third on the team with 13 points per game. As a graduate transfer, he has one year of eligibility left. As a North Carolina native, Mills could be intrigued by the idea of playing for Jerry Stackhouse, the former Tar Heel.

Kadin Shedrick, Virginia

At 6-11, 231 lbs., Shedrick is one of the most highly sought-after portal players at his position. He possesses what basketball nerds like to call “positional versatility.” This guy has loads of high-level experience in the ACC, appearing in 76 games, including 34 starts, over the last three seasons. He only averaged 6 points per game, but he was fighting for playing time in a crowded Cavaliers frontcourt. As a native of Holly Springs, North Carolina, I’d be willing to bet Coach Stackhouse is making a strong push.

Yvan Ouedrago, Grand Canyon

As a 6-9, 250 lb. Junior, Ouedrago was a huge piece of Bryce Drew’s Antelopes squad this season. Despite missing eight games due to a hand injury, he ended up starting 27 games this season, averaging 5 points and 6 rebounds per game.
