Ranking the Top Transfers Eligible to Play in the 2014-15 NCAA Basketball Season
USA TODAY Sports

Transfers like Bryce Dejean-Jones and Anthony Lee will be huge contributors for their new respective team during the 2014-15 men's college basketball season.

For a second consecutive year, more than 500 players have filed the necessary paperwork to transfer schools. For many coaches, recruiting via transfers has become an even more lucrative investment than recruiting incoming freshman.

Though the vast majority of transfers barely even cause a blip on the national radar, there are always a few that have a massive impact each year. Both Duke and Iowa State received No. 3 seeds in last year's tournament thanks in large part to the contributions of transfers Rodney Hood and DeAndre Kane, respectively.

Even the 2014 national champion Connecticut Huskies received some help from a transfer. Lasan Kromah wasn't anywhere near as important as Shabazz Napier or DeAndre Daniels, but the George Washington transfer provided some great defense and timely buckets during UConn's six-game winning streak.

We took a look through the list of transfers* who are eligible to play in the 2014-15 season and ranked who we expect to be the 20 most impactful players on their new teams next season.

With the exception of the final slide, only one transfer per new team was ranked. Though, where applicable, we mentioned other key transfers on each team.
