15. Malik Dia - Belmont to Ole Miss

2023-24 season stats: 16.9 ppg and 5.8 rpg

After a year of little production at Vanderbilt, Dia became a breakout star at Belmont, leading the team in scoring. The 6’9 forward had 12 games with at least 20 points, including a season-high 32 points against Drake. He’s back in the SEC, giving them an athletic big man who can play either the 4 or the 5-spot. With Moussa Cisse and Jamarion Sharp gone, the Rebels are looking to have more of a potent offense inside.

14. Danny Wolf - Yale to Michigan

2023-24 season stats: 14.1 ppg and 9.7 rpg

The 7’0 center was a breakout sophomore star at Yale, leading them in scoring and rebounding. Wolf had 12 double-doubles, including 24 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Penn. He joins a revamping Michigan roster, likely replacing Tarris Reed as a starting center.

13. Kanaan Carlyle - Stanford to Indiana

2023-24 season stats: 11.5 ppg and 2.7 apg

The 6’3 guard started 16 games as a true freshman at Stanford, shooting 39% from the field. Carlyle had a couple of major games, including 28 points against Arizona and 31 versus Washington State. He’s another Pac-12 transfer joining the Hoosiers, along with Myles Rice (Wazzu) and Oumar Ballo (Arizona). Carlyle’s ability to play both on and off the ball will be useful for Indiana to use different lineups next season.
