Tomas Murphy leaving NU. Losing Boursiqout and Murphy is going to hurt.

Big time recruit that while he had his moments, never really panned out.

There will be a lot of players to choose from in the transfer portal. While I like Novakovich and Carrs potential, if we could add a 1 year experiences big man who can rebound and defend (and gel with current roster), hopefully MI can pull one in.

You have a generational talent in Darling playing his senior year .,..surround him with as many pieces possible.

I get that the transfer portal is pretty much what college basketball is now, but you can refresh verbal commits every few hours and it seems 10-20 new names pop up.

IMHO there may be significantly fewer transfers this year than last. The coronovirus restrictions prevent coaches and prospective transfers from meeting face-to-face and campus visits.

To date the portal says you are wrong. Ever see a kid enter the portal and return to his former school?

I imagine that last year few, if any, players returned to or were allowed to return to their pre-transfer school. Thsi year may be different. I don't know why the Transfer Portal (which i dislike) can't operate similar to declaring for the Draft and then having a window to enter the draft or return to thier school. many of the players entered the Transfer Portal this year before the cornonavirus shutdown. Given the indefinite suspension of in-person recruiitng and campus visits, I could see both players & caoches being more amenable to resuming thier relationship at the pre-transfer school.

Bill, I check the portal just about every day. It seems 10-20 guys are being added each day, so I don’t think the virus has had much of an impact.

Hens along with about 15 other schools have reached out to American transfer Mark Gasperini, 6'10 245 C from American. Avg 10.5 pts and 5 boards over 3 seasons. I believe he is a grad transfer. Doesn't seem to be very athletic but has good size and nice post moves.

Wake and Marquette seem to be the cream of the crop of schools reaching out.

Bill Phillips and Mark both follow each other on twitter.
