NCAA Basketball: Top 10 "two-time" transfers that'll impact rest of 2023-24 season

It has been about 3 weeks since the courts ruled in favor of two-time transfers. The sample size is still small but there have been some players who have stood out above the rest of the double transfers.

9. Keylan Boone - UNLV

The forward from UNLV is in his fifth year of college basketball and it appears that the Runnin Rebels are going to get the best version of Boone. The forward started his career with his twin brother Kalib at Oklahoma State. Keylan then transferred to Pacific where he had career highs in points and shooting percentages. Then Boone decided to transfer again to UNLV to play with his brother again. The forward is currently averaging 11 points and 6 rebounds. It has only been 3 games but the impact for UNLV has been immediate.

UNLV was 3-4 with losses to Southern, Richmond and LMU. Boone being added to the team has been directly correlated to a UNLV resurgence. In the first game for Boone the Runnin Rebels beat Creighton handily. Boone had 10 points and 6 rebounds in that game. Then UNLV took Saint Mary’s to double overtime, losing by only 2 points.

Finally in the last game before the break the forward scored 16 points in a blowout win over Hofstra. Those are wins that UNLV would likely not have gotten had Boone not been on the floor. UNLV is going to be a team that is going to win some games in the Mountain West conference. Boone is likely going to be a factor in every game for UNLV.
