We actually had a fourth one who should have been on the list…the 6-5 guard from Mansfield. I am impressed with the UConn, Temple and SMU classes…the conference will get better quickly…

Yep, Mike Adewumni. I didn’t include him because he wasn’t rated at least a 3* by any of the recruiting services. I think he’ll be a good one, but probably won’t make an impact next year.

Also, Rice is basically losing their entire team as all of them are transferring. Noticed that Rice is stopping them from transferring to CUSA schools and Houston.

Scout has him as a three star…

I’ll add him then. Thanks for checking that.

4* PG is looking elsewhere as the exodus from UCONN continues

Good news for UCONN

3rd Freshman for SMU that’s transferring out:

That is interesting, must mean that they will be back on our schedule for the next couple years.

My thoughts exactly. Odd that I didn’t see any other Houston/Texas area school listed.

Last year’s freshman class continues to flee the ship; this time its the #30 ranked player in the nation.

4* Center is leaving East Carolina

Off topic a bit,
But I would like to know why Chicken sat his last game as a senior.

Is the amount of players leaving college BB/teams normal @pray10 for our conference?
