“Offseason.”

It sounds good, right?

Well, it doesn’t exist. Not yet, at least.

While the 2023-24 men’s college basketball season officially ended on April 8 in Glendale, Arizona, the past two weeks of roster machinations have been busier than the previous five months of games. Between the coaching carousel, NBA draft decisions, high school recruitments, the transfer portal — especially the transfer portal — and the extra year of eligibility for seniors, the personnel movement around the country has been endless.

Keeping track of the comings and goings has become borderline impossible, but that’s where we come in. As we’ve done the past couple of years, we’re sharing all of our roster changes research.

Some of the classifications are self-explanatory, but here’s a quick refresher on others.

  • Departed or expected to depart: Includes players who declared for the NBA draft, seniors who are not returning and players who have entered the transfer portal.
  • In limbo: Includes players whose status is up in the air — such as those waiting on waiver decisions from the NCAA, or high schoolers who could reclassify into the class of 2024.
  • Expected to return: Includes players who have confirmed they’re returning to school, or haven’t yet made other plans.
  • Newcomer rankings are according to ESPN’s recruiting database.
