Washington State forward DJ Rodman to transfer to USC

Washington State forward DJ Rodman, the son of NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, will transfer to USC according to a report from InsideUSC.

Rodman averaged 9.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game as a senior in 2022-23.

In four years at Washington State, Rodman appeared in 111 games. His career has been a little up and down in terms of production, but he’s coming off his best season to date. Rodman averaged 6.1 points per game as a sophomore, then 4.2 points as a junior.

But his pedigree is top notch.

Rodman is the son of former Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman, who was a five-time NBA champion, a two-time NBA All-Star and a seven-time NBA All-Defensive First Team member.

Now heading to USC, Rodman will get a chance to team up with two of the nation’s top recruits, five-stars Isaiah Collier and Bronny James, the son of current NBA superstar LeBron James.

To keep up with the latest players on the move, check out On3’s Transfer Portal wire.

Transfer portal background information

The NCAA Transfer Portal, which covers every NCAA sport at the Division I, II and III levels, is a private database with names of student-athletes who wish to transfer. It is not accessible to the public.

The process of entering the portal is done through a school’s compliance office. Once a player provides written notification of an intent to transfer, the office enters the player’s name in the database and everything is off and running. The compliance office has 48 hours to comply with the player’s request and that request cannot be refused.

Once a player’s name shows up in the portal, other schools can contact the player. Players can change their minds at any point and withdraw from the portal. However, once a player enters the portal, the current scholarship no longer has to be honored. In other words, if a player enters the portal but decides to stay, the school is not obligated to provide a scholarship anymore.

The database is a normal database, sortable by a variety of topics, including (of course) sport and name. A player’s individual entry includes basic details such as contact info, whether the player was on scholarship and whether the player is transferring as a graduate student.

A player can ask that a “do not contact” tag be placed on the report. In those instances, the players don’t want to be contacted by schools unless they’ve initiated the communication.

The portal has been around since Oct. 15, 2018 and the new calendar cycle within the portal begins each August. For example, the 2021-22 cycle started Aug. 1. During the 2020-21 cycle, 2,626 FBS football players entered the transfer portal (including walk-ons). That comes after 1,681 entered during the 2019-20 cycle and 1,709 during the abbreviated 2018-19 cycle. In comparison, 1,833 Division I basketball players entered the portal during the 2020-21 cycle after totals of 1,020 in 2019-20 and 1,063 in 2018-19.
