News On The Horizon 7/21/2017

10 Transfers Fresh Off Sitting Out a Year Ready to Impact Their New Teams--CBB Central
#6. Kameron Chatman-Detroit

Some outlets had Chatman as a 5-star prospect coming out of high school. While he didn’t live up to that hype in his two seasons at Michigan, he will get a chance to redeem himself the next 2 years, and that’s bad news for the rest of the Horizon League. Chatman is a beast of a wing who struggled with his jump shot while with the Wolverines. However, with a redshirt year to improve his game and the drop in competition level, Chatman should be able to to impose his will off the bounce and in the post. If the shooting has improved, Chatman is one of the most talented players in the Horizon League.

#1 Kendrick Nunn-Oakland

Oakland won 25 games last season and brings back 4 starters. That would be scary enough for most teams. However, Greg Kampe’s squad adds Nunn to the mix too, an extremely talented guard who scored over 15 ppg at Illinois before being kicked off the team. Nunn is one of the best players in all of mid-major basketball, and elite scorer who can get buckets from anywhere on the court. His strength and size allow him to be an excellent defender as well, and Kampe mentioned in an interview on the Marching to Madness podcast with Blake Lovell and Ken Cross that Nunn is getting already getting looks from NBA teams. Nunn may be the piece that helps Oakland put their recent Horizon League Tournament struggles behind them and get the Golden Grizzlies back to the NCAA Tournament.
