The son of former Temple and NBA player Tim Perry completes the 17-18 recruiting class assuming no one leaves early. Perry and Doles together with the two transfer guards seem like a solid group of newcomers for next year.

Pretty cool. That would give Drexel 3 kids of former NBA players on next year's roster.

That's cool but he wasn't listed anywhere must have been very recent.

Looking forward to watching Perry at DU. Spiker is doing a great job so far.

Verbal commits shows that Drexel just offer a point guard for 2017. Makes you wonder if someone has already deciding they are leaving.

Yeah his Twitter account has it announced yesterday. That's a head scratcher..

I am trying to get Thursday off from work. I should be able to and if successful, I'm going to try to make a trip up to Life Center Academy by Trenton before the Drexel. Perry is playing. Fingers crossed...

Also, this new guy may not even come here as there are bunch of other schools fighting for him. According to his twitter Drexel Ball State and Elon was at his game a few days ago.

However, my guess on who may transfer:

1. Sammy because, he wanted to leave last year but stayed last minute.
2. Major due to injuries he could be retiring after this season
3. Peck or Green as they are Bruisers guys and they aren't getting minutes.

People who are staying/ don't have a basketball reason to transfer:

Austin Williams
Miles Overton
Kirk Lee
Myles
Harper
Isabell

Thoughts?

When I saw this my first thought was potentially Major. He could be at the point where he could graduate and go elsewhere without sitting. Ending his career because of injury could also be a possibility but he seems to be doing well now so I would hope that is not the case after his two injuries.

I think Sammy stays. He seems to be doing well in the new system and after exploring leaving last year, I don't see him doing it again going into his senior year.

I wouldn't rule out Lee either. Given the success he has seen and depending on who he is listening to, maybe he thinks he can make a move up to a bigger name school. We've seen this with other CAA rookies in recent years - Adam Smith, Chaz Williams, Elijah Bryant and even Terrell Allen.

Peck and Green could be possibilities although may see more opportunity with Williams and Bah leaving. There is a possibility that Overton could have the credits to graduate and move on without having to sit too.

It is probably silly to even be speculating since we don't really know that anyone is leaving and there could be personal reasons for anyone that might cause them to leave, but hey that what message boards are for right?
