ACC Basketball Departures Since 2010 by School

New, 23 comments

Per request, here is a look at departures from all ACC schools since 2010

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

I asked recently on Twitter what you all would like to see an article on.

One of the responses that got a lot of interest was a look at departures from all ACC basketball schools since 2010 in comparison to Wake.

So without further ado, here is a complete list broken down by school of players who departed with eligibility still remaining.

Note: A player is listed as having declared for the NBA Draft in the year in which he was no longer on the roster. Example: Reggie Jackson of Boston College declared in 2011, so he is listed for 2011-12 as he left early and was not on that roster as a result.

Note: Louisville, Maryland, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse are only listed for years they were in the ACC.

Note: A walk-on is noted with a *.

As you can see above, Wake Forest has had the most early departures since 2010 with 30 players having left the program for one reason or another. NC State is 2nd with 28, Virginia Tech and Duke are tied for 3rd with 23.

In counting only scholarship players, Wake Forest still has the most with 30, NC State drops to 24, and Virginia Tech and Duke still have 23.

Mike Brey of Notre Dame has had by far the least early departures with only 4 players leaving the program since the Irish joined the ACC.

Wake has had by far the most number of dismissals from the program with 8, compared to 3 for 2nd most North Carolina. No other school has had more than 2, and Boston College, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, NC State, Notre Dame, Syracuse, and Virginia Tech haven't had to dismiss any players during this period.

Virginia Tech’s numbers are high due to having the most scholarship players transfer out of the program with 21. Boston College is 2nd with 17, Wake Forest 3rd with 16, and Virginia and NC State are tied for 4th with 14.

Duke has had by far the most players leave for the NBA Draft with eligibility remaining with 16. North Carolina is 2nd with 9, and Louisville is 3rd with 7. NC State, Syracuse, and Florida State are tied for 4th with 6 apiece. Wake Forest is tied with Georgia Tech for 7th with 4 apiece, though Wake has only had two players actually be drafted (Aminu and Collins).

So even with all of Duke’s one-and-dones and other schools having more coaching changes, Wake Forest has still had the most players leave the program of any ACC school since 2010. Here’s hoping that changes soon.
