Couple more players transferring out

Post by forestgreen » July 3rd, 2019, 3:39 pm

Two more JC players transferring out, F Robert McCoy (who has already resigned with Concordia-Irvine)and G/F Juwan Williams. Should we be concerned or is this how College basketball operates now?

Answer: yes.

We should be concerned about who we have when we have them... but this is definitely college basketball 2019.

It is how college basketball operates (actually has been for awhile, people are just now realizing it), but I'm not overly concerned. It usually ends up backfiring on the player eventually. Those who bop back and forth between schools usually have a history of doing the same thing through high school and AAU. During the NBA playoffs, a lot was said about how four of the best gaurds in the West (Curry, Thompson, Lillard and McCollum) all went to lesser known basketball schools and all stayed when they had better opportunities elsewhere. Kids these days are told early on that they have the tools to play in the NBA so whenever there are cracks that so up, it is easy to dismiss it, instead blaming the coach, program, school, etc, and they need to go somewhere else to "showcase" their talents.

Rumor has it that ISU grad transfer Alonzo Walker will transfer to PSU. He played for CJ Killin at a JC, then ISU, and it wouldn't surprise me if he follows him there.

Done deal as the signings came out today:

Walker reminds me of former Viking player Brandon Hollins, 6-6 and very athletic!
