2022 Big East Transfer Portal, Vol. 5

It was a relatively slow week for outgoing Big East transfers. Even with another delay in publishing this edition of the Transfer Portal Tracker, only three new players have left their respective programs by way of the portal. Despite the low number, one of the three transfers is quite notable to say the least; said-player may have found himself as a preseason All-Big East selection heading into next season. There are now 22 players from the Big East who have entered the transfer portal this offseason. With that being said, let’s get to it.

No More Demon Time

DePaul fans may want the winds of change to leave their city alone for the time being after David Jones announced his transfer. The 6'6 versatile forward came into his own following a solid freshman year in ‘20/’21. Jones proved to be a reliable piece for Tony Stubblefield’s squad this past season as he only missed three games. After averaging 14 points, 7 boards, 2 assists, and 2 steals while shooing 52% from 2 and 30% from 3, hopes were high that Jones could become an All-Big East caliber player for the Blue Demons in ‘22/’23 following the departure of Javon Freeman-Liberty. Alas, alas, alas.

DePaul is now left without a clear, and proven, go-to player on their roster, which now forces Stubblefield to work some magic in the portal to ensure the Blue Demons stay away from the dreaded 11th place finish in the Big East.

Good(ine) Travels, A Portal Story

Brycen Goodine announced his second career transfer, this time leaving the Providence MBB program. The 6'4 wing committed to the Friars ahead of the ‘’20/’21 season following his true freshman year at Syracuse. Goodine played a limited role for Ed Cooley’s team during his two seasons as a Friar, appearing in 37 career games out of 59 possible games. Moving forward, Cooley will almost assuredly look to add perimeter/wing depth via the portal. The roster currently has a projected eleven scholarship players on board for next season, with seven players being 6'4 or shorter while the other four are 6'8 or taller.

We Hardly Knew Ya

Shaheen Holloway, newly anointed head coach at Seton Hall, lost his first player to the portal recently. Ryan Conway announced his intent to transfer after redshirting his lone year in South Orange. Per 247, the 6'1 guard was ranked as the 6th best player in Maryland. The loss of Conway shortens the backcourt depth chart to three true guards. It may not be necessary for Holloway to search the transfer portal for a guard, but don’t be surprised if an addition is made to bolster the rotation.
