Weird story. Semi local upstate NY kid, goes to high school in Vermont, heavily recruited by UVM and other northeast schools, heads way down south, boomerangs right back, and now is on the move even further south.Tyler Bertram to UAB. I really thought this level was appropriate for him and can’t imagine his role expands as a Blazer, but UAB is coming off a 27-win season and maybe he’d rather get sparse minutes on a tourney team than be a key player at Binghamton.
I do wonder what it is some of these kids who transfer three times seek. In the analytics and social media-frenzied world it seems like some of these guys have trouble enjoying the moment and relishing the fortunes they have as Division 1 athletes.
