RE: LR gets another transfer
Yes, he was a 3 star out of high school. Ranked as the #234 in the country and the #47 small forward in the country. Didn't do much at all at UNLV- not sure if he had injury issues or not. He's 6'7" and obviously was considered to have a lot of potential. I assume he will be a sit-out transfer, unless his lack of playing time last year was do to an injury and he can apply for a medical hardship to be immediately eligible. I'm excited about his signing. Remember Rayjon didn't start at FGCU, and UNLV is certainly a higher level program

Maybe his is the grad transfer referred to in the recruiting section of this board.

Actually Verbal Commits does not list him as immediately eligible so maybe we are still looking at someone else.

RE: LR gets another transfer
Ben will be immediately eligible...as long as he completes the summer classes at UNLV. He will graduate and have two years left to play. He was not injured, he just didn't make the rotation as a sophomore. He's not going to score 25 points a game, but he will defend the other team's best player on most nights. He has the potential to lead the team in rebounding. He's a strong finisher at the rim. This looks like a really good fit for player and program. He played in Chicago at Simeon High School.

I was going to say if he graduates this summer he would be eligible immediately as a grad transfer.

That is a key ingredient we need this upcoming season. Glad to have him onboard!
