Transfer season for college basketball is beginning to heat up as both Ole Miss and Mississippi State’s men’s teams landed big commitments on Wednesday.

The Rebels convinced former Seton Hall star Dre Davis to join them, per a report from ESPN’s Pete Thamel. Davis averaged 15 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game for the NIT champion Pirates this past season.

Davis joins a transfer class in Oxford that already includes Malik Dia (Belmont) and Mikeal Brown-Jones (UNC-Greensboro). Dia averaged 16.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game for the Bruins while Brown-Jones averaged 18.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for the Spartans – highlighting Chris Beard’s commitment to improving the team’s play down low.

Over in Starkville, Mississippi State landed Miami center Michael Nwoko. While Nwoko didn’t put up much production (2.7 points and 2 rebounds per game) for the Hurricanes this past season, he was a top 150 player out of high school as part of the class of 2023.

Nwoko is the second transfer pick-up for the Bulldogs this offseason after making an early wave with former Penn State star point guard Kanye Clay committing on March 29. Clay averaged 16.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists for the Nittany Lions in 2023-24.
