    Are you interested in all NCAA mens teams (including e.g. Division III teams) or a subset?

  • This is probably answerable with limitation to D1; VerbalCommits has a database that would make this relatively straightforward (just scrape their pages for 2018-present, then match up to the current rosters from sports reference or similar).

Don't have an answer to the exact question, but in 2018, 29 teams hadn't had a transfer since the 2012 transfer portal began operation, according to this article which based its data on the VerbalCommits database:

List of 29 teams that hadn't had a transfer as of 2018

This is heavily populated by Ivy League teams, military academies, and other schools that would have very difficult to meet entrance requirements (like Stanford). But a few surprises - UCLA and Florida State, for example.
