Now that everyone has had their One Shining Moment, or in the case of NC State, 9 shining moments, it’s time for college basketball’s silly season to accelerate into full swing.

The transfer portal is open and everyone’s invited. (Coaches, too! As we’ve seen already in the SEC.)

All 15 of the ACC’s current teams have at least 1 player entering his name into the portal in search of a better situation, or a more lucrative name, image and likeness deals.

Or both.

Several outgoing players have already found new homes. Louisville’s Skyy Clark has landed at UCLA, Miami’s Bensley Joseph is headed for Providence and Louisville’s Brandon Huntley-Hatfield has decided to play for NC State.

And they aren’t even the biggest names who are on the move.

You could literally pick an All-ACC team from among the uncommitted players in the portal.

So let’s go ahead and do it.

G – Sean Pedulla, Virginia Tech

For starters, Pedulla is an actual All-ACC selection. He was picked to the 3rd team after leading the Hokies in scoring and assists at 16 points and 5 dimes per game. The 6-1 junior shot 80% from the line. His 148 assists ranked 3rd in the conference. And he was named the ACC’s Player of the Week in mid-January after recording back-to-back 30-point games against Clemson and Miami. The encouraging news for Tech and coach Mike Young is that upon entering the portal, Pedulla posted on social media that he is “strongly considering a return to Virginia Tech for my last year.”

G – Boopie Miller, Wake Forest

Miller is the latest in a growing line of point guard success stories by the “portal whisperer” Steve Forbes. But after only 1 season with the Deacons, Miller is heading out of Winston-Salem the same way he arrived. The 6-foot junior, who started his career at Central Michigan, started all 35 games for Wake, ranking 2nd on the team in scoring at 15.6 ppg and leading it in assists with 3.5 per game. Miller had plenty of memorable moments in his 1 ACC season, including a conference Player of the Week selection the week before Pedulla won the honor. But he also had an issue with turnovers, a problem that often cost Wake and helped send it to the NIT as its top seed rather than the NCAA Tournament.

G – Seth Trimble, North Carolina

Trimble was a top-50 recruit who resisted the urge to enter the portal and leave after a freshman season in which he played a minimal role for a team that missed out on the NCAA Tournament. But his impatience to play a leading role for the Tar Heels finally got the best of him this time. The 6-3 sophomore, whose older brother JP Tokoto played his entire career in Chapel Hill, was UNC’s best on-the-ball defender in 2023-24. He also provided energy and occasional offensive explosiveness off the bench in helping the Tar Heels win the ACC regular season and earn a No. 1 NCAA Tournament seeding. But Trimble mysteriously played only 9 minutes in UNC’s Sweet 16 loss to Alabama. With the potential of Jerry West Award winner RJ Davis returning, along with freshman point guard Elliot Cadeau and the addition of incoming freshman Ian Jackson, Trimble likely saw the writing on the wall and realized he’ll need to go someplace else to find an opportunity for playing big-time minutes.

F – Maliq Brown, Syracuse

Brown was one of the most improved players in the ACC this season. The 6-8, 222-pound sophomore averaged 10 points and 7 rebounds per game while shooting 70% from the floor, a figure that would have led the league had he attempted enough shots to qualify. As effective as Brown was on offense, he was even better defensively. He led the league in steals with 71, leading to his selection to the ACC’s All-Defensive team and a 4th-place finish in the voting for the league’s Defensive Player of the Year award. And did it while playing out of position at center for the final 18 games of the season after teammate Naheem McLeod went down with a season-ending injury. He is one of 5 Syracuse players to enter the portal.

F – Mark Mitchell, Duke

Blue Devils coach Jon Scheyer figured he’d be losing Mitchell after this season, so it’s no big surprise that he’s leaving. He already has another 5-star recruit in Cooper Flagg coming in to replace the departing 5-star forward. The unexpected development is that Mitchell is leaving via the portal rather than the NBA Draft. The 6-9 sophomore averaged 11.6 points, 6 rebounds and 1.1 assists this season and was Duke’s best interior defender. He was also something of a barometer for how the Blue Devils would do from game to game. Duke was 33-4 in games Mitchell scored 10 or more points and 14-1 when he scored 15 or more during his 2 seasons. Despite his departure, the Blue Devils have opened on ESPN Bet sportsbook as the 2nd pick behind 2-time champion UConn to win the 2025 national title.
