The 2024 Men’s Basketball Transfer Portal Tracker, sponsored by Three Notch’d Brewing, is here to keep you updated on all the player movement in college basketball this offseason. With JMU men’s basketball facing graduations and head coach Mark Byington’s departure, the Dukes are looking to make some big moves in the transfer portal to bolster their roster for the upcoming season.

One key returner for the Dukes is guard Xavier Brown, who announced he will be coming back for his junior year. Brown had a strong sophomore season and has the potential to be a standout player in the Sun Belt Conference. His scoring ability and defensive energy make him a key piece in JMU’s plans for the future.

As of now, there have been no new additions to JMU’s roster through the transfer portal. However, the team has seen some departures, including standout players like Terrence Edwards, Jaylen Carey, Raekwon Horton, and Justin Amadi. Each of these players brought something unique to the team and their absence will be felt, but new opportunities for incoming players will also arise.

Terrence Edwards, the Sun Belt Player of the Year in 2023-24, is testing the NBA waters this offseason but remains in the transfer portal in case he decides to return to college basketball. Jaylen Carey, a key contributor as a freshman at Vanderbilt, and Raekwon Horton, a junior transfer from College of Charleston, are also on the move, looking to find new opportunities to showcase their talents on the court. Justin Amadi, who missed the previous season due to injury, is also looking for a new start after being a consistent scorer and defender for JMU over three seasons.

It will be interesting to see how JMU’s roster shapes up as they continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of college basketball transfers. Stay tuned for more updates on the 2024 Men’s Basketball Transfer Portal Tracker as more players make moves in the offseason.
