Fran to IUPUI. Will be announced within the week. Feels there is better fan support and NIL money.
Makes sense. You get the combined fan base of Indiana University AND Purdue University. All in the largest city and capital of the State. Think of the recruiting opportunities within 30 miles of the campus, for God's sake!

Bad news. Purdue is pulling out of the partnership.

They're IU-Indy starting in July.

Pour one out.

That brings back some memories...
If IUPUI has an elaborate network of former players spitting out legacy recruits at a constant rate, then Fran might be in business. I imagine kids growing up in Indiana dream of one day becoming Jaguars. It’s not like there are other option in that state.

Testifying
Missouri should be a lot better this year. They are hitting the portal hard.
I think are in good position with a couple other transfers like Mark Mitchell.
They really need to work on their defense. I sporadically would tune in and woof, its really bad.

Mitchell had crystal balls to k State last week. They feel pretty good about him. Kyle cancelled his visit there on the and day the predictions were made.

He had two potential transfers visiting this past weekend. Not sure who they're competing with for them.

They also have a couple of freshmen coming in, a legacy (shocker!) and another kid, but both are bigger, AKA not ball handlers. They need guards in the worst way.

don't they have guards in the worst way ? and need some better ones.
I think they have Harding and Dix on scholarship for guards, unless I'm missing someone.
