As part of our ongoing preseason college basketball guide for the 2009-10 season, we'll examine the impact transfers eligible to play this season.

There are plenty of guys who will play an integral role in college hoops this year, including Tyler Hansbrough's kid brother. If we happened to have forgot about someone, please e-mail Jeff Goodman at jngoodman@aol.com.

1. Wesley Johnson, 6-7 ½, 210, F, Jr., Syracuse: Don't be surprised if the former Iowa State forward winds up being the team's top player. Johnson averaged 12.4 points while playing with an injured ankle his sophomore season at Iowa State but is ideal for Jim Boeheim's system.

9. Jai Lucas, 5-11, 170, PG, Jr., Texas: The Longhorns had an unsettled point guard situation last season, and now Dogus Balbay will have some competition from the former Florida floor leader, who won't be eligible until after the first semester.

12. Curtis Kelly, 6-8, 250, PF, Jr., Kansas State: He didn't get a ton of run at UConn, but that should change in Manhattan.

17. Ekpe Udoh, 6-10, 240, PF/C, Jr., Baylor: He left Michigan after one season under John Beilein. He's long and athletic and should fit in well with Scott Drew's up-tempo system.
