2024 CSU men’s basketball transfer portal tracker

Collegian | Lauren Mascardo
Colorado State University students celebrate Niko Medved’s 100 wins at CSU at the men’s basketball game against Denver University Dec. 6, 2023. CSU won 90-80.

Editors NoteThis post will continue to be updated as new players announce where they will be playing next season.

Every year there are transfers in and out of nearly every Division I program across the U.S., and this year from March 18 to May 1, players will be deciding where they want to play basketball next. Here is a tracker to follow players as they announce their decisions to transfer in or out of Colorado State.


Transfers out

Jack PayneThe man who the nation fell in love with in March Madness will transfer out of Colorado State. Payne didn’t see any real minutes this season, only playing in garbage time. The redshirt freshman played a total of 18 minutes this season, scoring five points. It’s not a big surprise that Payne decided to transfer out, as there was no real path to more playing time.

Taviontae Jackson: Jackson also did not get a lot of playing time throughout the season, averaging just around eight minutes per game. His time on the court kept dwindling as the season progressed, eventually finding himself outside of the normal rotation. The sophomore guard came to CSU in 2022 and scored his season-high of 13 points earlier this season against Colorado State University Pueblo. He will likely be looking for more consistent playing time.

Javonte Johnson: After transferring into CSU a season ago, Johnson will once again hit the portal. The forward never really cracked the lineup and really only saw minutes when several of the Rams starters were out with injuries. His best game this season came against Adams State University when he scored 10 points with two steals and a block. With only one year of eligibility remaining and a narrow path to more playing time, it’s not a big surprise that Johnson wanted a fresh start.

Cam Lowe: The Ram’s first-year guard will be playing for a different program next season after entering the transfer portal on April 5. Lowe didn’t play a single minute for CSU in his first season, but will be remembered for his high energy on the bench. Often times after a big play, Lowe would be the one cheering the hardest.

He started doing coverage on volleyball and club sports before moving onto the women's basketball beat. He is in his third year and is completing his degree with a major in journalism and media communication and a minor in sports management. As The Collegian's sports editor, Cook reports on CSU sports and helps manage the sports desk and content throughout the week. After having a year to learn and improve, Cook will now get to be part of a new age under the sports desk. The desk moved on from all but one other person and will now enter into a new era. Damon started school as a construction management major looking to go in a completely different direction than journalism. After taking the year off during the COVID-19 pandemic, he quickly realized that construction wasn't for him. With sports and writing as passions, he finally decided to chase his dreams, with The Collegian helping him achieve that. He is most excited to bring the best and most in-depth sports coverage that The Collegian can provide.
