    Just read that Norton's visiting Ohio State next week and Purdue shortly after.

    C'mon mane.
    The point is he has a terrible assist/turnover ratio for a point guard, which made me question if he even is one. You're splitting hairs just as much as I am. Nick Norton's assist/turnover ratio is 3.06. Nate Mason's, who is not known as a pass first point guard by any means, was 2.8. Nixon's is 0.95. That's a pretty big difference and only slightly better than Reggie Lynch's (0.93). I think it's fair to question how much of a point guard he is and whether he would actually be competing with Washington for the starting spot.

    Yes, I expect with numbers like that Pitino isn't thinking about him as much of point guard. He has three open scholarships and needs scorers too. Between Mason and Lynch we lost about 27 points per game.

    Drake? Why would he not want to play for a higher profile school?

    I would suspect the answer is that he wasn’t in mix.

    Chances are, he felt he would have a bigger role at Drake. Here he would have been slated as backup PG. I wish we could have gotten him, but that's the problem with grad transfers- they want to start right away.

    Maybe education played a part and basketball wasn't his highest priority, wanted more playing time, a scholarship player picking a school where basketball was only one of many parts to the decision, horrors.

    Prentiss Nixon did not list the gophers in his final 4 schools. It will be either Iowa St, Illinois St, Loyola-Chicago or SMU.

    I'm okay with that personally, especially if we are able to get McGowens in this class.

    Well, there's nothing special academically about Drake, particularly at the graduate level. Maybe he just wanted to get this over with. These are the last few weeks of the semester (possibly a pretty busy time for him) and he didn't want to spend time visiting a bunch of places. Maybe he saw Drake and just thought it was a good enough fit.

    Yeah, if. If not, I'm not so happy. I'm sure there are other prospects lined up but there have been more announcements today about transfers committing than about new transfers.

    I think Reid Travis name has popped up somewhere in this thread. Found this article interesting.

    I saw that too when it was posted. It does say in the article that Reid Travis has not publicly announced that he is transferring. The logic seems to be “If he’s testing the NBA draft waters, it’s a sign he might be interested in playing elsewhere next season.” So it’s still largely speculation as to whether he will transfer at all.
