Seems odd. Maybe he’s just testing the market. I’m sure a big school is about to offer him. Could be related to Hall leaving and Spears coming back as the RB1.

Could be looking to play a season closer to home. Could it mean Huderson is coming back?

Wonder if he's sitting out the bowl game

Something seems off.

I am not shocked. He didnt have as good of a year this year. He wasnt fielding punts or kickoffs like 2019 IIRC. He wasnt used at receiver much and got less than 1/3 of the load at RB.

My impression for this season was that he was overall used less than he might have been, so it is possible that he thinks he was unfairly underutilized -- his nose is a little out of joint.

Yeah no bowl for him. More PT for YGB if he is healthy hopefully.

don't be too worried... with the open frontier for transfers this offseason, we will be fine

We signed a talented RB. Celestine. I actually thing we have enough backs but Jones is a good player. Would love to find out what happened.

A healthy Spears and Huderson would be a start for next year. Jones was here three years. It may be about being replaced as punt returner but his replacement played better. He's a talented guy. I'm sure he wants more playing time like all his teammates do. I wish him well. I hope he leaves with a degree.

We need another HS signee and probably a transfer. We can't be sure about Spears yet. I can think of one locally connected guy right now in the portal.

Last night I was talking about the portal. I think we probably lose 5-7 guys. This will be annual occurrence. It happens everywhere.

Amare had 400 rushing yards and 14 catches this season... 2 rushing TDs... the 2 TDs were a normal game for him in the past... I am certain it was all about how much he was being used... I doubt he follows Will Hall to USM, that's for sure.

Now more than ever coaches have to have a backup plan for personnel (and coaches). That's always been the case for coaches but with players moving around much easier you have to believe all kids are free agents.

every player gets a free transfer this year.. if we ONLY lose 5, it will be a "win"

Yep and to be clear the majority of guys leaving won't be big contributors. That's not to say they aren't talented, just that for whatever reason they didn't fit in the program they signed with. Losing bunches of productive players isn't the norm.

This leaves us with only 2 RB's for the Bowl game.

I assume he just made the decision because timing is odd. However opting out now keeps him healthy and attractive as a transfer candidate. One misstep next week like Spears or Dauphine had and he's "stuck" at Tulane. I doubt he needs to buff up his Tulane highlight reel anymore. Man he was awesome at Cure Bowl and his 4q KO return against Tulsa put us in a position to win that game. I'll miss him.

"This leaves us with only 2 RB's for the Bowl game." Experienced RBs. We have other RBs. And, apropos of RBs, I hope that the new OC does not repeat the occasional misuse of Cameron C. by calling a play for him to run laterally. Not his forte. He is N-S. I saw him too many times not being able to turn the corner.

My guess is somewhere in Texas.

If he felt underutilized under Hall this year he isn’t going to follow him to be underutilized at USM
