Inside the NCAA Men’s Basketball Transfer Portal

Tristen Newton visited East Carolina University’s compliance office just over a month ago and revealed he would be entering the NCAA transfer portal.

He filled out paperwork and gave it to a compliance officer, who then entered Newton’s name on the portal’s website.

“And it’s like 40 seconds later that I got a call,” Newton said.

He wasn’t exaggerating. Wichita State head coach Isaac Brown was the quickest of about 40 or 50 coaches to call, text or direct message Newton over the next few days. Once he received a call from UConn Men’s Basketball team, his decision was practically made. After an official visit to Storrs, Newton committed to the Huskies on April 13.
