Big East Basketball 2021-2022 Roster Change Tracker

Last updated July 8, 2021


Due to the pandemic, there is another unprecedented situation in college sports. This time it has to do with rosters. Namely, who will be on each school’s roster for the 2021-2022 season will likely be markedly different than any year before or after. The pandemic has forced the NCAA to adopt rules for senior eligibility and one-time penalty-free transfers. Thus, it appears that all 20-21 seniors will be eligible next year and all first-time transfers will be immediately eligible regardless of class (with the latter likely to become a permanent rule). This tracker attempts to detail all men’s Big East basketball roster changes: transfers, returning seniors, overseas pros, and NBA draft entrants. The tracker will be updated periodically as news breaks.
