Nice way of saying no longer playing basketball at the NCAA level.

I guess they sign "letters of intent" too.

I do like the 2 kids from same team transferring to Tallahassee CC. Guess there could be worse places.

I think they transfer to JUCO for 2 primary reasons. 1) to up their stock while playing. Obviously, many of these guys were riding pine at their former school so they have no body of work to talk about other than high school, which is a year old for a lot of them. So, by playing a year at JUCO, they can start and play 32 games and maybe attract better offers. 2) they avoid sitting for another year. If they transfer to another DI program, they have to sit a year. If you're transfer options aren't to your liking, why not go JUCO for a year, play, possibly get better or at least demonstrate skills you may not have had in high school, and then be a JUCO transfer to a new DI program and come in with the expectation of playing. Not many schools are beating down the door to grab a guy who averaged 0.4 points and 2 minutes a game.

Update:

DJ Houston, Jr - Fr PG Western Michigan - Has announced he will transfer from Kalamazoo. No word yet on where. He is from Santa Monica, CA so, it wouldn't surprise me if it's a JUCO out there somewhere.

Houston played in 24 games (0 starts) and averaged 1.7 ppg over about 9 minutes per game.

Houston is listed at 5'11" and was a 2* recruit.

Speaking of transfers we just got one from the JuCo ranks.

He was once a Redshirt Freshman at Kent State:

That’ll help as we are so undersized as a team.

And a rebounder. That was kind of a forgotten skill on last year's team.

Yup. I noted it earlier on my write-up on him. I think he's got a real role on this team. He's a big, strong body that is a rebounding machine. I'm presuming he plays D well (no idea, just guessing on his statistical profile). He won't start, but guys that can rebound like that (and score almost 10 ppg, which, I'm almost certain a grand chunk of those are 2nd chance points) is a very useful role player.

RE: 2019-20 MAC Basketball Transfers (Updated)
It's unofficial (Twitter) but it's being reported that Cortez Mosley, who NIU had apparently made an offer to at some point, has decided to attend Moberly Area Community College in Moberly, MO. I'm guessing there is an acceptance issue where he needs to spend some time in JUCO to qualify for a 4 year university. This is speculation on my part.

Also, Antonio Reeves, another player NIU has made an offer to, will be announcing his choice at 5pm this evening.
