While my son is still in HS, we'd like to see him play in college. We would prefer him not transferring, so we feel it's important to think of and be aware of as many possible reasons that would cause a player to transfer, especially when deciding where to go to school. I think discussing potential reasons will give him a more realistic idea of what life in college will be like.
I know of a few ball players from our area that went to D1 schools in 2021, but this fall they transferred to JuCos. I don't know their reasons and they could of had multiple.
Here's a list of reasons that come to mind:
-Change in finances (lost scholarship or can't afford)
-Academic (poor grades, doesn't have what they want to study)
-Play time expectations
-Better opportunity elsewhere
-Expectations did not equal reality.
What else can you think of?
