  • 03/27/2023 9:12 am in

The offseason is here for the Big Ten and Inside the Hall will once again keep the most comprehensive list of Big Ten roster movement entering the 2023-24 season.

This post will be updated frequently this offseason due to all of the player movement, but here’s a current look at Big Ten rosters for the 2023-24 season.

Editor’s notes:

– All players listed under NBA draft/professional route/out of eligibility will not return to school.

– We are listing players who went through senior night but have the option to return under “eligibility remaining” unless the player has explicitly stated they will not return to school. 

– Walk-ons are not included unless they have played significant minutes.

– Please contact us via email if any omissions or errors are spotted.
