The NCAA Basketball transfer portal is nowhere near done getting filled but a few players are starting to get closer to decisions. One of them is Keyon Menifield, a freshman originally from Flint, Michigan that played his high school ball in the state of Arizona.

The 6’1 guard was an impact freshman at Washington, averaging 10.0 ppg and 3.1 apg on 41% shooting and 33% from three-point range. Menifield started the year off the bench before becoming a full-time starter the rest of the way.

The guard made a noticeable impact, as one of the most explosive players in NCAA Basketball with the ball. Menifield had several big games as well, scoring 20+ points five different times. One of them was a 27-point and seven assists in an overtime game against Oregon. It was his 26-point game against Utah Tech in the third game of the season that put the young guard on the NCAA Basketball map.

What makes Menifield interesting is that he’s a more score-first point guard. But he showed better playmaking decisions down the stretch and at his next stop, could be a good lead guard option. That being said, a return to Washington is potentially in the mix.

The Huskies are among the list of six finalists, including the likes of Louisville, Tennessee, Ohio State, Alabama, and Arkansas. Which of them makes the most sense for the freshman guard? Here’s a power ranking in terms of fits, going from worst to first.
