Really surprised that didn't happen before this past year. ECU isn't exactly a threat to go dancing or whatever.

I've actually seen him play. This would be a great get regardless of whether it is a position of need. He would be too good to pass up.

Memphis NIT champs and Houston in the Final Four. We need to keep bringing in good players to compete in the best conference in college basketball. :-D

As I have already posted, the number of transfers is overwhelming. Even schools like Kentucky are highly involved with transfers. In the Baylor vs Arkansas Elite 8 game, 6 of the top 7 scorers were transfers. With so many transfers,I would expect the NCAA to again consider granting blanket waivers next season.

I read where that was expected to happen again. We may have seen the end of the one year sit-out

There could be more than 1500 D-1 transfers this year. That would be a staggering number.

That's a 33% clip or over 4 players from every D1 team. Since every one of the 347 D1 teams is not losing 4 players it means many many teams are losing a boatload more.

So I think it's safe to say the transfer market is here to stay. I'm curious how much of this is driven by covid since kids couldn't visit campuses basically all of the last year. We saw some interesting effects on football recruiting nationally. Any thoughts on if this will be a sustained level of transfers or if there's some chance it will be less pronounced in future years?

Starting with teams like Cincinnati, where basically the whole team bailed and the coaches (if they keep their jobs) are just waiting to see who all ends up in the portal so they can reassemble an entirely new team.

The exodus from USF continues. 7-0 250# RS JR Michael Durr is transferring. He averaged 9ppg and 8 rpg, despite often being in foul trouble. He is originally from Atlanta, Georgia. I expect HC Gregory to be fired soon. I would like to see Tulane involved with Durr.
