We already knew the transfer portal was wild, but now, we have the first ever intra-Big East transfer, as former four-star prospect Corey Floyd Jr. has chosen to transfer to rival Providence after spending a redshirt year with UConn.

That was just one part of a big week on the recruiting trail and the transfer portal of the Big East.

New commitment:

  • Four-star 2023 guard Zaide Lowery (Springfield, Mo./Kickapoo) has committed to Marquette.
  • Three-star 2022 center Connor Turnbull (O’Fallo, Mo./Fort Zumwalt North) has reaffirmed his commitment to Butler, after reopening his commitment following the departure of LaVall Jordan.

Incoming transfers:

  • UConn guard Corey Floyd Jr. has chosen Providence. He has four years of eligibility and did not play this past season due to a redshirt year.
  • Virginia Tech guard Nahiem Alleyne is transferring to UConn with two years of eligibility left. He averaged 8.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists through 32 games last season.

Outgoing transfers:

  • Georgetown guard Tyler Beard has found a transfer destination: Pacific.
  • Providence guard Matteus Case has found a transfer destination: William and Mary.
  • Seton Hall guard Ryan Conway is transferring to Towson. He redshirted this past season.

Other notes:

  1. If you notice an error, have news of a new offer, please feel free to tip me off—or Big East Coast Bias—on Twitter: @becb_sbn and @erapay5. I’ll update accordingly.
  2. Shoutout to Anonymous Eagle, Casual Hoya, Banners on the Parkway, Rumble in the Garden, The UConn Blog, and VU Hoops. We unfortunately don’t have articles on all recruits, but we got some help in filling some blanks from our fellow Big East SB Nation sites. Some recruits have clickable names, which will take you to a relevant article regarding that player.
  3. I recommend viewing the spreadsheet externally, since you’ll be able to use things like filters (Google Sheets has that option on the top-left, next to the print button.) and Ctrl+F (Apple+F if you’re on Mac) to help make searching for recruits easier. You’ll also have a bigger screen/window to look at the spreadsheet: Big East Offer Tracker, last updated April 25, 2022. Alternatively, you may view below.
