Boys BB: 2019-20 Transfer Rundown

Here’s a quick-hitting list of transfers that will impact this year’s boys basketball state rankings. It’s been a hectic off-season and we offer a rundown of where some of California’s elite players ended up, including some who left the state, and some who just transferred as recently as the past week. California also added some good players from out of state, including two-time defending CIF Open champion Sierra Canyon getting McDonald’s All-American candidate B.J. Boston from Norcross (Ga.) and talented sophomore Shy Odom from Beaver Country Day School (Chestnut Hill, Mass.). Note that Prolific Prep of Napa and other academy-style destinations are not members of the CIF and wouldn’t be playing any CIF schools.

We hope you enjoy this free post on All player rankings and all State Top 20 weekly team rankings for the regular season will be for Gold Club members only. To get your Gold Club membership for rates of $3.99 per month, $9.99 for three months or $24.99 for one year, CLICK HERE

We will release the senior Hot 100 (2020), the 2021 Hot 100 and the younger two classes in the coming weeks. You can get more daily boys basketball updates by following Ronnie Flores on Twitter: @RonMFlores ; We’ll publish our preseason boys basketball ranking package at the end of this week as the season begins this school year on November 18.
