Kind of a weird ranking system as it doesn't take into consideration who was the net add, just who retained from existing/returning roster. Per ESPN:

13. Minnesota Golden Gophers: The Golden Gophers really struggled in Ben Johnson's first season at the helm and lost most of an experienced roster -- only three players return. On the plus side, only Abdoulaye Thiam hit the portal, and they kept hold of leading scorer Jamison Battle.


Go Gophers!!

Not weird at all if you look hard at the title "coaches who kept the most talent out of the transfer portal"
Why would they take into consideration who was added? The title was about keeping players from leaving.
I do wish he would have added another player or two from the portal instead of relying on 5 freshman

Sorry to reply to you on two threads about the same topic, but our 5 freshman are going to be the 4th and 5th starter and our somewhere between our 8th and 11th guys on the bench. How is that reliant on freshman? That’s assuming Carrington starts over Ihnen.

Roughly 1/2 of your playing roster is made up of freshman.
