Which schools are interested in Izaiah Brockington in transfer portal?

Izaiah Brockington recently entered the transfer portal for a second time, and this time it seems like he’s intent on leaving. So, where could Brockington end up?

National college basketball writer Jon Rothstein tweeted out today that these schools have shown interest in Brockington. It should be noted that UMBC is coached by former Penn State interim head coach Jim Ferry.

Giger’s take

When word first broke the other day of Brockington entering the transfer portal a second time, there was a whole lot of speculation on social media that he would end up at North Carolina.

But the Tar Heels are not on the list above. And actually, looking at that list, one might wonder this: Why doesn’t Brockington just stay at Penn State?

Arkansas is coming off an Elite 8 season and is coached by Eric Musselman, who excels at getting good transfers. Brockington is the kind of player who could succeed in Musselman’s system, so transferring there would make sense.

Also, Providence has been a consistent NCAA Tournament program since 2014, and BYU is a solid program that’s frequently in tourney contention.

But a lot of the other schools on that list aren’t exactly tearing it up in college basketball. A case could be made that Brockington might have as good of an opportunity to be a standout player and compete for an NCAA tourney bid next season if he were to stay at PSU, as opposed to going to most of the other schools on the list above.

Still, more schools likely will enter the fray for Brockington’s services, and certainly some more successful programs than many of the ones above.
