Ah, but hanging onto the core is the key. Unfortunately the core usually are the ones with the most options to leave. I'm thinking about the kid who left to Villanova among many others. Are we better this year than last? A little. At least we weren't firmly in last place again. I know I say I root for the uniform but it's gotten to the point where we should just do like West Point/Army and put Tulane where the name goes.

I wonder if all this transferring around devalues recruiting. Just spitballing here but why put in all the effort recruiting a kid throughout high school and AAU with all that entails, just to have him leave after riding the pine or even after having a breakout season? Why not just constantly troll the transfer portals, pickup the rebounds, and repopulate every year? Not sure I believe what I'm writing but all this movement makes me question what it would be like to put years into recruiting a kid and then have him pull the ripcord after a year, or worse yet after he has a little success and he sees greener pastures elsewhere.
After you've been on fire under Arctic pack ice everything else is a walk in the park.

Last season over 1,000 D1 players transferred. This year should be higher. I think it is a combination of kids wanting to play right away and the 1 year waiver being put on hold last season (and maybe this season too). I could be wrong.

Another Lamar transfer with the dismissal of HC Tic Price - 6-1 200# FR PG Kasen Harrison was the Southland Conference Freshman of the Year. He averaged 13 ppg and hit nearly 50% of his shot from behind the arc in limited attempts. He signed with hometown Lamar out of high school. I will be interested in seeing where he ends up.

So to date no player from this year's roster at Tulane has entered the portal other than Koka to Detroit at mid year? Correct? In this era of free agency, I will be astounded if that stays true through the summer.

This is a very interesting transfer. Ja’Queze Kirby, a 6-6 190# FR SF is transferring from Murray State. He was recruited by HC Hunter at GA State and at Tulane. He is originally from, GA. He played minimally at Murray State his freshman season He is thin but really athletic and plays with great energy. He is reportedly an excellent passer. I am intrigued by this transfer.

Missouri has offered Green Bay SG transfer Amari Davis who Tulane offered a couple of weeks ago. Missouri HC Cuonzo Martin is a very good recruiter.

Amari Davis to Missouri was not surprising. After Tulane offered it seemed Davis was still looking around. Once Cuonzo Martin got involved, I thought it would go in that direction as he can be “very persuasive.” Davis is a left handed slashing guard who is just learning to shoot from the perimeter. He has a lot of upside if he can develop his shot.
