We tracked the 633 MBB student-athletes listed on ESPN’s 2016 transfer list to determine their destination for 2016-17. Only 546 of the players on the list were identified as transferring to another school and joining the basketball team. 46% of the transfers went to another Division I school (often to a less competitive program), while the others typically left for Division II, NAIA or 2-year colleges (Figure 2).

About 40% of all MBB players who enter Division I directly out of high school depart their initial school by the end of their sophomore year.
