Thank you both for the clarifications.

I guess my bitterness about the McNeil thing hasn't totally subsided.

I really should listen the the Cranberries and not have let it linger.
The fact he ended up being a bad player makes me feel just fine about it.

It is not like we lost a good one.

Wright IV would have been an excellent player for us, but that was more about Wigginton than McNeill.

Surprised to see late additions to the transfer portal and glad to be banking a scholarship just in case

He might be seeing the writing on the wall with the MWC canceling football. Plus New Mexico’s governor had asked New Mexico to cancel fall sports already a few weeks ago. Seems like they’re going to be one of the more cautious places when it comes to athletics and covid.

hes not a grad transfer in the portal. no idea what his eligibility will be
Gotta be a grad transfer. Played two seasons at Towson, sat out, and then played one at New Mexico. Good size and assist numbers. Looks like he lost his three point shot when he went from Towson to UNM. Would be a nice addition, especially if they’re not feeling good about a Harris waiver or some freshman contributing.

I'd have a lot of reservations about adding someone right now unless they were an absolute game changer.

This winter may be at risk. What does that do to our roster?

Guessing our Seniors won't want to come back for a sixth year if the season is canceled. But???

The 5 Juniors are the major question. 4 of the 5 would be able to redshirt and could cause a serious log jam with our available schollies.

Even if the NCAA grants some type of temporary waiver to allow additional scholarships do you really want that as it could hinder the classes we are recruiting now?

he’d be smart to head closer to home. Almost a lock for a waiver if he plays that card

One would think Zane announcing his transfer this late in the year he expects to be able to play next year due to finishing up summer classes or as Messi metioned chosing a school close to home to get the waiver.

In general I'd be curious to see if Prohm is looking to add a guard at this point, like you said could give us a hint on how they feel about the waiver situation and were the freshman are at.
I am sure the staff believes in the freshman but they haven't had a normal offseason in Ames (or OUS trip) to get up to speed as other classes have.

hmm, it’s not like we pushed him out IIRC.
It honestly looks like everyone is getting a waiver. I think with the uncertainty surrounding the season, everyone should. It's not like you're going to make a transfer sit the 2021-2022 season if this upcoming season is cancelled. Might as well give everyone eligibility.
