Not a huge fan of one-year guys unless they are special...I suppose time will tell. Hopefully he can have an impact in 2020 in what is certainly a position of need.

Great to see a move like this. Unfortunate he only has one year of eligibility, but hopefully he still contributes. They need at least one more O-line transfer and a couple of d-line transfers, too. Shows the coaching staff is working on it. I haven't looked at the portal lately to see who is available and if they look like possible transfers to UD.

I/we talked about this in the fall. Unless it's a local kid it'll be difficult for UD & Rocco in particular to attract a transfer with more than 1 year of eligibility. You have to believe these transfers do a good bit of homework before making their destination decision.

He came to Delaware with 2 years of eligibility remaining, until he, like Ashworth, quit.

Transfers Ezeuzoh, Kane, Gray, F. Burton, Z Burton, Garrett (who has left the program), Cathers, Knight were not included as they were in-state or in the case of Gray only had a year left.

It is a shame when they quit the program. Hopefully they get their degree. I liked both of them. Both were contributors.

I made a list at the very beginning of the offseason detailing possible transfers. I created a transfer score that takes into account their hometown distance from UD and their ranking coming out of HS according to 247sports. A higher transfer score means that either the player is from an area close to UD or they were (and maybe still are) an elite athlete. I haven’t updated it since the first list I put out because I was busy finishing my last classes at UD and graduating this December, but I can update that list and post it here ASAP.
