Tons of players transfer now. All have their reasons. They are within their right to do. Playing time, maybe not fitting in with the school, don't fit in with the scheme, or maybe they have an inflated ego and people telling them they're better than what they are. Maybe they just think the coaches "don't show them enough love." That's just being general. It could apply to a UVM player, but those are the broad reaching reasons players leave.I guess I'm not too familiar with the process. Would the school be unhappy with his performance, or would the player be unhappy with his playing time and lack of success on the court? Why not give it one more year?
Players sit down with the coaches at the end of the year and have individual meetings. They discuss the success/shortcomings and where they envision things in the future for the player. Generally during or after those happen, players make decisions on their future based on all those reasons I listed. But, it also works in many ways to re pitch the player and the program to them, especially given how many now know they can leave. Nature of the business now...and some players have to be re-recruited. Not the first time it's happened to UVM, won't be the last. Thankfully, as of late they've been able to keep most everyone around.
