Dang both of those are so far! I was thinking maybe more regional? Can you transfer within the Big 12 without penalty? If so maybe Oklahoma or TCU? RICE? No idea

Tayler Bennett is leaving Rice as a graduate transfer. That's not surprising to me - she ended up missing the last half of the season with an undisclosed injury and she wouldn't have received any playing time next year. Congrats to her on graduating in three years, and good luck to her wherever she ends up next year.

My speculation at this point is we use the extra scholarship with a regular transfer who sits out next season. I don't know that for sure but it seems like it would be a good time to have someone sitting out a season who can play in 2020-21.

FYI, Tayler will complete her final two seasons of eligibility at Academy Of Art University.

Sounds like a real winner of a school academically...

That said-it is actually NCAA DII.. I assumed it was NAIA.

If she wants to do design, it's probably a decent fit, but a lot of students who want to do "design" don't really know exactly what is involved.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
First recruit of 2020 is Maya Bokunewicz, a 6-0 PG from Pennsylvania who seems like a relative unknown. By my estimation, and disregarding any potential departures next year, we should have one more spot open. It looks like we're still in the running for Fatou Samb, a big who's ranked #68 in ESPN's top 100, and Zayla Timmer, a G/W who's a 3*. Unrelated to Bokunewicz in any way, but I have been wondering whether our last two seasons would be enough to vault us into serious consideration for some of these top 100, top 50 recruits. Might need to have another year like last to really get the national attention.

Had offers from DePaul, William & Mary, Northeastern, St Francis Brooklyn, Duquesne, Saint Francis, Akron, and Bucknell. DePaul was a top 25 team last year, so good to beat them out.

RE: Women's Basketball Recruiting Thread
Her picture makes her look taller than 6-0. Speaking of which, the picture of the 5 incoming freshman posted on twitter makes it look like one of the 6-2 girls is taller than listed. But I don't know which one is which.

Rice makes Fatou Samb's top 5 along with Wake Forest, Michigan, Harvard, and Cal.

She's the 68th ranked recruit in the country in ESPN's rankings. I tend to take more stock in women's rankings just because it seems it's easier to identify a dominant player in HS. 6-3 post from Houston who's obviously very smart. This is the kind of recruit that people on this board have been dreaming of (on the men's side especially).
