Boys BB: 2021-22 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 month. Look for our preseason Cal-Hi Sports state rankings on November 11, as the basketball calendar reverts back to a normal winter schedule with teams able to play out-of-state and against out-of-state foes. The 2021-22 season officially begins November 15. The CIF state basketball championships are scheduled to take place March 11-12, 2022. 

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

Note: We’re in the process of updating our Cal-Hi Sports Hot 100 player rankings in the 2022-2024 classes for Gold Club members. This winter we’ll also introduce the 2025 class as the season tips off. You can get more daily boys basketball updates by following Ronnie Flores on Twitter: @RonMFlores
