Interesting....not surprising, but interesting. I wish the best for him and hope he has found himself in a situation where he's content. Outside of his going closer to home (barely), I'm still intrigued with the situatuon of someone who has a starting spot, averaging 28+ minutes in a larger mid-major school deciding to jump ship mid-season towards, at-best, less than a lateral move.

This is what happens when someone thinks they are better than they really are. He listened to all the wrong people. I wish him well.

Agree wish him well. I think the Hampton move will work out and he's coming back home. It's going to be tough sitting an year out.

All agreed that we wish him well. I know that Hampton is "closer to home," but come on, we're in Norfolk. Justanodufan is correct in that all of his actions were/are based on those he surrounds himself with, whose opinions, apparently, are questionable at best. With all due respect to Hampton University, I can NOT see how this is a better situation for him. I would love to hear the opinions of fellow posters.

Sorry, this may ruffle some feathers here, but I am happy Godwin is gone.

As the kids would say, he fumbled the bag.

Its better because he will play more. He doesn't have to compete with wings that are better than him.

I wish them well, but it is better for the team that both he and Dickens are gone.

RE: Transfers
I think Hampton is over on scholarships with Quis. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't have to pay for this semester and it needs to be close to full time. Hampton could pick up next school year and get half a season of play. Bad advise...but if you can tell the difference between good advice and bad advice, you don't need advice.

We have to assume that LaLa Davis is gone. He does not even identify himself as an ODU player on his twitter, and he does not follow the new coaches and they don't follow him.

Well that's not a good sign but you'd think he would have entered the transfer portal officially by now if he had made up his mind. Shame if true, he's going to be special.

And, Robert Washington hit the transfer portal today. We are extremely thin at RB. Hope we have a lot of new RBs coming with the new coaching staff.

Washington didn't show that much last year. He has now left UNCC and ODU. Can't imagine what his thought process is.

Damon Hazelton from Virginia Tech is in the transfer portal. Probably a longshot for us but ya never know.

With Wolff and three 3 stars signed for 2020, and the strong probability of more very good recruits forthcoming, the chances of Jonah ever seeing the field were almost nil.
With the perceived quality of this new staff vs what had been here, we are not going to lose many top players/recruits to transfer now. Those that go are, for the most part, going to be the ones who want to actually play somewhere.

I wish him good luck and thank him for his contributions to ODU! 04-cheers

Until we see some beat OL and DL recruits being committed, we should not be too excited.
