More than 2,000 Division One men’s basketball players entered the transfer portal earlier this year, the highest total in NCAA history, and more than 100 of those players were from schools that will be members of the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2024-25.

The rising popularity of the portal reflects multiple factors, including: 1-thanks to ongoing lawsuits, the NCAA recently backed off its rule requiring multi-time transfers to sit out a year of competition at their new school; and 2-the growth and availability of Name-Image-Likeness money at many prominent programs offers star players at other schools another incentive to explore their options.

Among ACC schools, Louisville (with 12 scholarship players departing) and incoming member Southern Methodist (nine) saw the highest attrition rates, which is not an unusual phenomenon during a coaching transition, and every program lost at least one scholarship player to the portal.

The Cardinals and Mustangs are now led by Pat Kelsey (coming off a successful three-year run with College of Charleston) and Andy Enfield (past 11 seasons at Southern Cal), respectively, after the postseason dismissals of those programs’ second-year head coaches, Kenny Payne and Rob Lanier.

2024 ACC Basketball Transfers
(Outgoing; Scholarship Players Only)

12—Louisville
9—Southern Methodist
8—Wake Forest
7—Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Syracuse
6—Boston College, California, Virginia Tech
4—Clemson, NC State, Stanford
2—Notre Dame, Pittsburgh
1—North Carolina, Virginia


A player’s official entry into the transfer portal enables other schools to contact him without fear of violating NCAA tampering rules. A player who enters the portal can withdraw his name at any time and stay at his current school, although that happens with only a very small percentage of entries.

This year’s portal window for men’s basketball was open for 45 days (March 18-May 1), down from last year’s 60 days. The NCAA’s Division I Council adopted that rule change in a vote last October.

Under the NCAA’s modern transfer rules, a player doesn’t need to select his new school by May 1, but if he didn’t enter the portal during the 45-day window that ended May 1, he may not be immediately eligible at his new school.

In mid-July, 96 of the ACC’s 100 outgoing transfers had selected a new school. Seven additional players opted to withdraw from the transfer portal and stayed with their 2023-24 team.
