There are three ways college teams can get torn apart: the NBA Draft, graduation, and transfers.  If transfers pick the right schools to go to, they can make a major impact on those teams.  This off-season has had many moves, but you have to look at last year’s transfers to make an impact due to the year of ineligibility for transferring.

Here are some of the biggest names to transfer in the last two years, and transfer lists from major conferences over the last two years.
