You can find the following information elsewhere, I know.

However, here’s what I hope is an easy one-stop place for you to keep track of men’s basketball players transferring in and out of Big Ten programs and Iowa State, as well as the status of their players who were early-entries into the 2020 NBA draft. Those players have until June 3 to withdraw and keep their college eligibility if they haven’t hired an agent.
