In the upcoming season—Is it November yet?!—quite a few college basketball teams will be relying heavily upon transfers who spent the entire 2013-14 season sitting on the bench.
In all likelihood, these players won't be quite as impactful as Rodney Hood was for Duke this past season after transferring from Mississippi State and spending a season on the sidelines with Coach K. However, there are a lot of important names that most of us have long since forgotten about.
Pictured above is Angel Rodriguez during his days with Kansas State, but he will likely be the starting point guard for the Miami Hurricanes in November. He is just one of the dozens and dozens of players who changed schools after the 2012-13 season without being granted immediate eligibility to play at their new school.
If you think it's hard to keep track of players declaring for the NBA draft, coaches moving around, or conference realignment, try staying abreast of transfers.
Thanks to the never-ceasing work of ESPN's Jeff Goodman, we know there are already well over 300 players attempting to transfer schools this summer. There were more than 500 who did the same last year.
It's from that latter group that we compiled this list of 10 teams who will benefit the most from players who sat out this past season.
The following slides are ranked based on how crucial we feel these transfers will be to their respective teams' success in 2014-15.
