Dartmouth forward Chris Knight is one of the most coveted players on the transfer market at this stage of the year.
Knight, who played three seasons at Dartmouth, is looking for a new home after an Ivy League rule looked to sideline him for his fourth season.
“I can’t play this year,” he said of his reason for entering the transfer portal. “Ivy League rules say we aren’t able to do grad years at the school we are at.”
So, programs such as Richmond, Loyola-Chicago, Santa Barbara, Western Kentucky and Arkansas, among many others, are making a strong push for the forward, who averaged 14.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assist per game on 56-percent shooting from the field.
“Mostly [coaches] all said I’ve proven myself at the Division I level,” he explained. “And besides a development of an outside shot, I’m pretty skilled and have a high motor.”
Knight had six double-doubles last season and scored 20 or more points five times. His six double-doubles are 3rd most by any Dartmouth player in the last 10 seasons. Only Evan Boudreaux, who transferred from Dartmouth to Purdue, had more double-doubles in a season.
