Glenn Taylor - St. John’s Red Storm

2023-24 season stats: 4.4 ppg and 2.2 rpg

After averaging 11.6 ppg and 3.7 rpg in the year prior at Oregon State, Taylor’s production took a major dip at St. John’s. He did manage to start 21 games and played 17.5 mpg, shooting 45% from the field and 42% from deep in limited attempts. His best games include 11 points against Dayton and 17 points on the road at Butler.

Taylor’s stock is similar to Damian Dunn in that he went from a priority transfer option a year ago to one where he’ll have to wait to see a better option. But he’s still a proven high-major player, which makes him a more reliable target compared to the mid-major ones. 

Trevon Brazile - Arkansas Razorbacks

2023-24 season stats: 8.6 ppg and 5.9 rpg

Brazile had a strong freshman campaign at Missouri, where he showcased great two-way potential. But in the two years since at Arkansas, he dealt with injuries and is coming off a rough past season. He’s currently in the NBA Draft process and doesn’t seem to be in a major recruitment at the moment.

At one point, Brazile was viewed as a top-10 impact transfer when he left Missouri. His stock has certainly fallen since then, potentially allowing an opportunity for a team like Pittsburgh to come in and offer a role. He’s not the kind of offensive player that Hinson was but he’s a quality defender when healthy and has a real post-game.
