Women's college basketball transfer portal tracker: Who entered and where they land (2022)

The transfer portal is bumpin' once again this offseason with more than 1,000 student-athletes in it for the past month. The portal has been knocked by many coaches and fans who view it as young players not wanting to put in the hard work or stick out tough transitions. But it is also an avenue for players to exit a toxic situation.

Transfers are a key aspect of college basketball either way. Coaches can treat it similar to free agency and plug players into gaps. The portal can give an early glimpse into problems within a program's culture.

We compiled the most notable transfers here, both for individual talent and sheer number exiting a program. This post will be updated as transfers commit elsewhere or players continue to enter the portal. The last update was made May 9.

This content is not available due to your privacy preferences.

Update your settings here to see it.

There are many more factors that go into any player's decision to transfer beyond the most recent season and head coach, but we included those to give basic background on the program. A thorough list of players in the portal can be found at WBB Blog. This post will be updated periodically with transfer news with the date in italics and parentheses.

Poffenbarger enrolled early at UConn in January 2021 and appeared in 12 games, including the NCAA tournament. She entered the transfer portal in November and joined the Arkansas program midway into the year, but was not eligible to play because of the timing.

McLean entered the transfer portal in mid-December and committed to Virginia earlier this year. She ranked 25th overall in the class of 2020 and the fourth-best wing by ESPN. Her freshman year she totaled 68 points, 51 rebounds and 11 assists in 167 minutes shooting 46.4%.

Joens' decision to leave came as a surprise since her older sister, Ashley Joens, announced she would return for a fifth season at Iowa State. She was a projected first-round WNBA draft pick. Kelsey Joens, one of their younger sisters, has committed to play at Iowa State come 2023-24.

"It was a very hard decision knowing that I wasn't going to get to play with Ashley again and knowing that Kelsey was coming here, and I wouldn't get to play with her again and all my teammates in general," Aubrey told the Des Moines Register on April 15. "I just overall wanted more playing time and wanted a bigger role, and I thought that this is a good decision for me."

She announced in late May she would join Oklahoma, which lost to Iowa State twice last season. The Sooners went 25-9.

Edwards announced April 27 she committed to Baylor, led by head coach Nicki Collen. She previously transferred from Utah to Kentucky ahead of 2018-19. Massengill, who previously played at Tennessee, is heading to Florida State as a graduate transfer.

Collins (7.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 25.2 MPG) also played key minutes with the injuries Maryland dealt with during the season.

Reese will move to the SEC to join head coach Kim Mulkey in her second year at the helm.

“I chose LSU and Kim Mulkey because of the winning culture,” Reese said in a release. “I trust in coach Kim and her staff to help develop me into the player I need to be for the next level. Her resume speaks for itself and I want to continue that here at LSU. The relationships I’ve built here, especially with the team, are so special and we are ready to work!”

There were and are high hopes for the program's star to return it to the top. Whalen is 60-59 as head coach and has not yet had a winning record in Big Ten play. Her 2022 recruiting class is ranked seventh in the country.

Mississippi State

2021-22: 15-14, 6-10 SEC. Lost to Kentucky in second round of SEC tournament.

Blackwell led the nation in defensive rebounds (10.5 DRPG) by a full 1.4 more than Lorela Cubaj of Georgia Tech. She was one of four who missed games late in the season due to what coach said were separate violations of team standards. Blackwell told ABC17 out of Columbia, Missouri, she would make a transfer decision in May between South Carolina, Ole Miss and Baylor. She ultimately chose Nicki Collen and the Bears.

Collen told ESPN:

"Our fans saw firsthand how she can impact the game with her physicality, rebounding and overall attack mentality when Mizzou played us in December. She has the ability to swing between forward positions and is a true mismatch for opponents with her combination of skill, speed and size.

"Aijha wants to continue to develop her all-around game and be pro-ready, and I know we can help her do that."

Williams and Dorroh were also in that group suspended late in the season.

Morehead State

2021-22 season: 1-27, 0-18 OVC. Team was 7-16/6-13 the year prior.

  • Saniya Rivers (6-1, freshman, G), Eniya Russell (6-1, sophomore, PG) to Kentucky, Elysa Wesolek (6-1, senior, F)

The trio of transfers played sparingly on a deep, full roster of talent. Rivers, the No. 3 recruit in the 2021 class, averaged 12.9 minutes, the most of the group, and had 38 total assists.

“I was not the piece of the puzzle they were looking for and the piece of the puzzle they wanted me to be,” Rivers said, via the Star News. “I know I’m good enough to play there, but the fit wasn’t what I thought it would be coming into my freshman year.”

Russell was 42.2% from the floor and 5-of-12 from 3-point range.

  • Priscilla Williams (6-0, sophomore, G) to South Florida — 2020-21: 8.7 PPG, 3.2 APG

Syracuse filled its roster with mostly transfers as a bridge from its mass exodus in 2021 to the start of a new era under Legette-Jack. Carr and Carr (no relation) averaged double-digit points and about four rebounds each.

Williams was one of the few who stayed, but had to redshirt last season for an undisclosed injury and will join South Florida. She last played in the 2021 ACC tournament and took a scary fall, appearing to hit her head.
