    Seems like a flake at first glance. Am I missing something?

    I think it was a mutual thing.

    I think he saw that we had quite a bit of talent at the wing and decided to try his luck somewhere else.

    Odunsi committed to McDermott, and before we added Jake Anderson, and the other transfers. He was concerned about playing time - that was the public reason anyway. Can't say that I blame him since when he committed, it appeared that he could get a lot of minutes, then all the transfers = no PT.

    It was well after the fight w/ the Harrison twins, and he had already signed - I don't know for sure, but I would think if Fred didn't want him, and/ or didn't care for him fighting w/ the twins, he could have cut him loose sooner in the process. Just my take...

    Odunsi was Hoiberg's first commit. He committed to him

    I think you are technically right, but it was right after he was hired, so I'm guessing that TJ/McDermott were in on him long before the coaching switch.

    Could it be he went to Utah when he saw Clyburn leave there to join the good guys?

    My guess is he'll transfer closer to home and play in Vermont

    kids like odunsi might as well have a giant neon sign on their back saying TRANSFER RISK. they're not top100 players, yet they think they should be at a BCS school, so they choose a school that "appears" to have playing time. then they get there and find out that playing big minutes at any BCS school is not easy, they get frustrated, and they leave.

    Not positive but if Odunsi would've stayed with us, would we have Percy Gibson? I thought him leaving opened up Gibson's scholarship, or maybe it was Cook.
