8. Anton Grady, Wichita State (from Cleveland State): Though multiple knee surgeries robbed Grady of the explosiveness he had in high school, the 6-foot-8 forward remains a double-double threat because of his sound fundamentals. His array of post moves and consistent mid-range jump shot will help a Wichita State team that is loaded on the perimeter but must replace standout Darius Carter in the frontcourt.

Top 30 Transfers For 2015-16--CollegeBasketballTalk

1. Damion Lee (via Drexel) and Trey Lewis (via Cleveland State), Louisville

At the start of the offseason, Louisville’s top returning scorer was Quentin Snider at 4.1 points per game, and that’s after his scoring average jumped a full point following three straight double-digit outings in the NCAA tournament.

But head coach Rick Pitino tapped into the graduate transfer market and came out with the most-sought after transfer, Damion Lee. Before that he had grabbed a point guard and 3-point shooter in Trey Lewis. Those two fifth-year seniors joined a heralded incoming freshman class that included Donovan Mitchell, Ray Spalding and Deng Adel.

Lee missed almost all of the 2013-14 season with a torn ACL, but recovered to finish fifth in the nation in scoring last season at 21.4 points per game. Lewis will be able to play either guard spot and provides a deep threat, hitting 96 threes (42 percent) in 2014-15.

Lee and Lewis benefited from Louisville’s foreign tour in Puerto Rico. The duo left their mark in the first game of the trip, combining for 49 points. Lee went for 36 points off 11-of-18 shooting. The two newcomers have also stepped up as leaders, according to members of the team.
5. Anton Grady (via Cleveland State) and Conner Frankamp (via Kansas), Wichita State

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 14.3 points and 7.9 rebounds per game in his final season at Cleveland State. Electing to use his final year of eligibility as a role player to Ron Baker and Fred VanVleet, Grady will offer a different low-post presence, head coach Gregg Marshall said recently. While it’s a different style than his predecessor, Grady helps fill the void left behind by the graduating Darius Carter.
