Malik Martin, F, grad transfer from South Florida to Tennessee Tech.

Xavian Stapleton, G, graduate transfer from Mississippi State to Florida Atlantic.

Eric Lockett, G, grad transfer from Florida International to North Carolina State.

Also, we learned today that Stone Gettings, a forward, will grad transfer from Cornell.

Yale forward a likely grad transfer

Noah Yates is a fascinating story, as was highlighted yesterday in the New Haven Register. He went to Yale to play football, retired due to injury, joined the basketball team, and has become a key role player there.

Ivy League rules prevent players from playing a fifth year, even if they lose a year to injury. So Yates has a year of eligibility remaining because he didn't play four years of college basketball for the Bulldogs. He's already expressed a desire to use his graduate transfer, and in the article, he says he's already been in contact with other schools. We'll update you when he decides where he'll take that grad transfer.
