Yeah, I heard it after I posted.Didn't know if anyone else had heard the rumor. The kid knows how to score the basketball. He scored over 2000 points in high school and was on the MAAC All-Rookie team. I know he was a hell of a soccer player as well. Would be a good get IMO.
Agreed- my sentiments exactly.Yeah, he wouldn't be an "impact transfer" in the traditional sphere of unchecked Internet hyperbole, where every transfer from anywhere is immediately your best player. But I think he would make an impact in that he would immediately be in the top 7-8 players in the rotation. I think being surrounded by better talent at Vermont than he was at Marist, he'd play fewer...but more effective minutes. He'd certainly be used to the competition level, coming from the comparable MAAC. And yeah, his strong suit at this point seems to be perimeter offense...which we can't have too much of. He has definitely thrived in his first 2 seasons more than I had expected him to. Would definitely be happy if he ended up here.
According to Burlington Bob's understudy, posting rumors is no longer allowed.It's only true if Radio Free Burlington says it is. Please read the rulebook.
That being said, I've heard the same thing. But our sources suck, so he'll probably wind up at Holy Cross.
Nope, he's not on the preliminary list.NU: Is Chambers still not on the list at Penn St?
Just checking. Kthanx. Keep up the good work.
If Russin ends up at UVM, I'll file this under "the sun shines on the backside of a dogs ass, every now and then."
I love the "after the facts blow up in my face" qualifying words.Nope, he's not on the preliminary list.
Keep up the good work yourself. You're doing the likes of Gennady Seleznyov proud.
Here's a little update on some old friends at Drake per Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports -
- Returning starters Seth VanDeest (shoulder surgery) and Jordan Clarke (knee), as well as key reserve Frank Wiseler (illness), did not suit up at all on the trip.
- Kraidon Woods – a former Villanova commit, Arizona State signee and Binghamton transfer – did not travel with the team due to disciplinary reasons. “We had an agreement,” Phelps said. “And he was on-course before falling off at the end. But I had to stick with my word. It should be a wake-up call for him.”
Can't say I'm surprised AT ALL by either. Clarke and his knees and Kraidon Woods being Kraidon Woods. I'd have to think Drake knew what they were getting in both cases. Don't really feel sorry for them.
Agree- and big reason why is Vermont and BU were pretty fortunate that they combined for 0 transfers despite head coaching changes. If someone would have told me there would be 0 transfers out of both schools after the coaching changes I would have said no way not a chance.I am happy that (for once) the outbound transfers thread was relatively quiet this summer.
I'm going to be watching him closely at Akron. I really liked Chauncey and I hope he found what he was looking for as a Zip.FWIW old friend Chauncey Gilliam led Akron with 21pts against some Canadian school:
Apparently Corey Chandler's time at Texas Southern didn't last long either (even if Marc Hsu was and is still there and available for writing papers, bail money and transportation services...)Don't know if it has been posted already or not, but Malik Alvin is at Division-II Shaw University.
