Jordan Clarke is headed to Drake and the Jake O'Brien situation has it's own thread and is pretty up to date, so I figured I'd start a random catch-all thread for the other outbound AE transfers.

I am particularly interested in Socoby and Raffa. Have either found new homes yet? I know Raffa was given some limitations as to where he can go, is that still the case? Is Socoby definitely gone from Maine and where would he go for one more season?

Are there any other transfers that we have forgotten?

I heard all the limitations were lifted but none of those limitations were to Higher Level schools (A10, BE etc.) who he thought were going to be hot after him. Another kid who got bad advice or chose not to take good advice.

I heard "Q" has a few schollies left other then that its JC or pay his own way for a year to go to a school that has no schollies available.

It was publicized that Malcolm Campbell is transfering from Hartford. I have no idea where he will be going (I assume D2). There is another transfer but I have not seen it public yet.

The Socoby front has been quiet in Eastern Maine.

Probably because no one gives a **** about Maine basketball.

Not a whole lot of takers for Raffa, I've heard he might go to Q but nothing confirmed.

Not sure Q has any spots left. They just announced 2 more signings (and had 2 early signings), and this doesn't include Baskin who is waiting for his SATs.

Hamden, CT -- Quinnipiac University Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tom Moore has announced that two more recruits have signed with Quinnipiac for the 2009-10 season. Deontay Twyman (Olney, Md.) and Ryan Bogdan (Mt. Pleasant, S.C.) will join Jamee Jackson (Irvington, N.J.) and Dave Johnson (Howell, N.J.), who signed with the Bobcats in the fall, in Moore’s second full recruiting class.

That's an awful move by Socoby; I just don’t see Socoby having too many D1 places to play at??? And I am very certain Campbell will be heading back to the West coast to play his finally three years, either at some D2 school? Don't you see Raffa playing in either the MAAC or NEC? A bit odd, there’s been no type of news of where they will be transferring too? Last item, as per College Hoops Update, they show Ex-UMASS player Travon Wilcher, heading over to Maine.

Speculation has been that Socoby is going to a lower division. Most people I've talked to are guessing he stays in Maine.

My money is on Husson University, D-III, where he would probably put up 30 a game and play in the NCAA tournament. Two things he would not do at Maine. Husson is a decent degree these days too.

Other in state options? Colby, Bates and Bowdoin as institutions would not take an incoming senior as a transfer. You aren't getting a $160,000 degree that easily. Maine Maritime is similar. USM is out there (Jamaal Caterina anyone?) but I don't think Socoby has many Portland area connections, so why bother? Long shot, how about UM Presque Isle? He's originally from the County, transferred to Bangor High for 2 years after 2 years at Houlton High. A bit of a homecoming?

Not a transfer, but does anyone know what Dennis Wolff's next move is?

And to think that Socoby was supposed to be an A-10 level recruit. He never would have survived!
I think he was a prime example of a kid who should have gone to prep school. He blew out his knee in a pick up game before his senior year of high school, and obviously that will evaporate options in a hurry. A year at MCI, and Maine's offer would still have been there, and maybe St. Joe's, etc. would have too. Plus, it would be about the only time in his basketball career that he wasn't expected to be "the man."
