6. F Rapolas Ivanauskas – Colgate to Seton Hall
Our first big on this list is power forward Rapolas Ivanauskas, who finished his undergraduate career at Colgate last season. Ivanuaskas was a solid presence down low, averaging 13.1 points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game for the Raiders as a senior.
The market should be robust for Ivanauskas, who is immediately eligible as a grad transfer. Teams should salivate over Ivanauskas’ skill set, who can score in a variety of ways but is most effective as a back-to-the-basket big.
One squad that should be in hot pursuit of Ivanauskas is Seton Hall, which could have some issues in the frontcourt next year. Romaro Gill is graduating while Sandro Mamukelashvili is a legitimate pro prospect at the four, so there could be plenty of playing time for Ivanauskas with the Pirates.
Seton Hall is losing a lot of scoring next season so adding a guy like Ivanauskas could fill some of that void. Ivanauskas would also welcome the chance to finish his college career playing in the Big East, giving himself a bigger stage to pursue professional opportunities in 2021.
