Last season, over 350 Junior College players signed D1 scholarships. Junior College players bring with them experience, toughness, and the ability to produce right away. We have talked with hundreds of coaches over the last couple of weeks and look forward to seeing all the JUCO products playing at all levels. With the season starting tomorrow, looks at several JUCO Transfers to Watch in 20-21 season. Many of these players will be expected starters or rotation players to start the season.

Last season, he helped Salt Lake to a Top 5 National Ranking (29-4 record) and was a NJCAA All American. He averaged 13.9 ppg and 4.2 apg. The super athletic guard can create for himself and get into the paint to create for teammates

6’3 PG Tae Hardy & 6’6 G Justin Johnson of Southern Miss – Hardy and Johnson are two talented Junior College players that bring scoring, size and playmaking to the guard positions for Southern Miss.

His scoring and playmaking should translate well to UT Arlington

Last season, he averaged 25.2 ppg, 7.5 rpg and 5.1 apg while shooting 38% from 3 (9.2 attempts/game). His scoring and playmaking should translate well for Cleveland State
