The portal is going to be like this every year.We also need staggered transfers, we can't afford all to be one-and-done for the sake of continuity.
The portal is going to be like this every year.
Guys at lower level schools who played well there for 3-4 years, maybe graduated but now it doesn't matter as much, looking to upgrade.
Well first of all ... things were very different at the time they made that decision.but saying that anyone who played this year gets an extra year makes no sense.
So you're saying that the 2017-18 college basketball season ... he graduated Armstrong late in 2017 and joined IU for the spring 2018 semester, and used that season as a redshirt?Includes a redshirt year as a functional high school senior as he made himself eligible early.
I wondered the same thing when he did it. Thought seemed to be he would get a head start on college level competition and conditioning. Plan was derailed when he had the injury (concussion?) that kept him out most of his season that would have been his freshman year. Early entry is more common now.Well first of all ... things were very different at the time they made that decision.
It wasn't for certain by any means that there would be able to even play a whole season.
And this year hasn't been "fun" by any means, for these guys. All the testing, quarantining, regimented lifestyle. These guys aren't big men on campus. There is no campus. No students around.
Travel, you're probably locked in your hotel room the whole time. Can only come out for meetings or to go to the gym. Maybe even bring their food to them in their rooms, who knows.
It's like being sent to the moon, to live, eat, and breath basketball. And take some virtual classes.
That's not the usual experience. So I think it is right to let this year not count. My opinion.
It does. It would be interesting if he gave a hard look at Minnesota. When Smart left VCI for Texas he had recruited Murphy. Then we got him. Deja vu if we get another under sized PF in the same fashion.
You have to request a release. It's almost unheard of that they don't let you out of them now a days.His 247 page says he signed a letter of intent with Texas back in November.
Can you break that, just because the coach leaves? Not saying you shouldn't be able to, just wondering.
That I have no idea on. Just know that the school has to release them. I think some may hold on and hire a new coach first, but I am not sure.
