Rhode Island Hoops: Top talent and lead guards from each school have, entered the transfer portal
The transfer portal is a dangerous game, and Rhode Island Hoops has unfortunately been dealt a bad hand. Four of the state's top talent, from all four schools, have entered the transfer portal, and will seek new homes for the upcoming season.
It's a sad day, it's a bad day, but we at House Enterprise and the 401 appreciate the four guys work and passion for their respective schools. We wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors!
It's worth noting that all four of these players won the RI Hoops Player of the Week nod at some point during the season.
Charles Pride | Guard, Bryant
A four year starter and one of Jared Grasso's original guys, Charles Pride led the Bulldogs to the school’s first-ever NCAA tournament appearance last season. In his third straight double-digit scoring season, the 6-foot-3 guard and Syracuse native, averaged 14.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game this season.
Ish Legget | Guard, URI
The Ram's top scorer averaged 16.4 points this season under new head coach, Archie Miller.

His season-high occurred on Feb. 22 against George Washington when he scored 30 points
Paxson Wojcik | Guard, Brown
After two seasons coming off the bench for Loyola Chicago, Wojcik has been a staple for Brown University. Over the last two seasons, Wojcik has played, and started, every game for Brown.
