    Has nothing to do with Diallo. We have two open next year. The problem is only 2nd semester this year

    I agree there are so many transfers now, you have more upside on banking one than giving it out on a flier

    Not true nowadays.
    Did we have room for Brooks? We had to lose a guy we wanted to get Kane. I'll take the risk of having a scholarship go unused for a semester for the chance at gaining market power for guys like Brooks or mid season transfers. Guys become available and I'd wait for them over signing guys like Bluford or non-contributors. Just like getting transfers was an under utilized strategy that Fred exploited so is viewing signing season as year round.

    I thought Williams is taking one and there is one left. Only 2 seniors on the team?

    Even if a guy doesn't contribute in games it helps a lot to have someone that is better than a walk-on for the scout team.

    BDJ, Edozie and Hogue. Williams gets one next year, so at least two open now for 2015-16

    So I assume if he transfers now he would sit all of next year and have 2 full years of eligibility remaining? Or would he sit out first semester next year and then have 1.5 years remaining? Unless he plans to go pro early or something, it would seem stupid to waste that extra semester of eligibility.

    I believe like McKay he would lose his redshirt for this year, so if he sits all next he would only have 1 year left. So better to play 1.5.

    I think since this is his sophomore year, he could transfer out at semester and have to burn the 2nd semester of that year and pay his own way. He could then transfer somewhere and redshirt the 1st semester, and have 2.5 more years to play.

    I'm not saying its an omen, but at 2:05 of the high school video, Walking Cy makes an appearance.

    OK, it's an omen.

    He has 3.5 years to play 2 seasons, or 2.5 years to play 1.5. His choice.

    Agree.

    He had a solid freshman year, but I can understand why he was not a instant impact guy. With the wrong coaching, he may be a tweener. Watching that video, I think Hoiberg would at least have him playing at a late 2013-2014 type role. He may be an inch or two shorter, but is probably 20 pounds heavier, just as explosive, and with a better handle.

    I forgot how highly regarded he was early in high school (when Otz was all over him). Had he kept growing he was going to be an elite recruit.
