If more schools would revoke scholarships once a player enters the portal it would slow down. Enter the portal your off the team immediately and all financial aid ends at the end of the semester

Of course many of the entrants were asked to leave. If schollys were revoked that would probably identify those players - something coaches don't want to do as to not hurt recruiting.

Good point I was not considering that some are asked to go

Every college athletic program has its scholarship limits, even those who are consistently getting the top ranked recruits on a yearly basis. 25x 4=100 and 25x5= 125 so even the best programs have to find a way to part company with players they recruited but now don't want them to stay. In college football that means dumping 15 to 40 in that time frame. That is one reason the school likes the transfer portal since it makes it appear it is the student who makes the move on his own volition. The coach does not have to call the kid in and tell him "YOU'RE fired!!".
The numbers are smaller in Basketball, but the system works the same.

Jamal Johnson - Auburn (and previously Memphis)

And for those who weren't around, there is serious history--and it was a major scandal--when Buck signed with Alabama last minute after being committed to UAB all along. There were detailed stories in the Birmingham Post-Herald, among others, because two P-H reports (Paul Finebaum and Roger Shuler) were present in Buck's home when a lot of the drama went down. The whole thing was so dirty.

Of course, Buck went on to be a great player at Alabama and played 10 or 12 years in the NBA. I'm sure the whole UAB thing is water under the bridge now, but for some of us, it's hard to forget.

I recall that was the topic of a "confidential letter" of complaint from Gene Bartow to the NCAA. Someone at the NCAA (probably for a bribe) turned the letter over to a Bama booster and the war was on (or only made worse) between the two athletic programs. That enmity may have been why Bama AD Mal Moore sought cancer treatment from two in state hospitals (DCH and Brookwood) NOT named UAB. It may also have been a factor in the actions by the Paul Bryant, Jr dominated system BOT blocking a BB transfer (Knox) and eventually leading to the 2014 termination of the Blazer football program. Elephants are said to have long memories.

Auburn had Kep Jesper(?), a transfer PG, announced he was going to Auburn...

KJ Buffen from Ole Miss entered portal today...

Coach followed him this morning.

Is there a deadline the transfers have to sign with a new school by or a recruiting period for them?

Just wondering how soon it may be before we hear something about some of these transfers.

Does anyone know if TSG or Ertel are going to stay next year?

There is a dead period starting April 1st that lasts like 10 days, so maybe some will announce before then,but really there’s no rush for any of these guys to make a decision as they will be finishing their spring semesters where they are now before they will transfer so sort of an artificial deadline to want to know where you are transferring to if you want to take may/summer classes at your new school.

Considering we’ve tried to let a short guy run PG for us over the last two years, I’m not really up for doing that again. However, Kennedy did recruit Tyler Harris out of Memphis East. He’s leaving Iowa State.

For fun, Some players you’ll remember whether they are former players or recruits:
Jordan Brinson is leaving Utah Valley
Dedric Boyd leaving Illinois state
I like Chico Carter, leaving Murray State
Antonio Daye leaving FIU
Elijah Joiner leaving Tulsa
Demond Robinson out of Montgomery, leaving Murray state
Jaykwon Walton Leavin UGA

Murray State transfer Chico Carter (@ccarterjr3) tells me that UNC Charlotte, UAB, Georgia State, Georgia, NC State, UIC, Youngstown State, Boston College, among others have contacted him since entering the portal.

Just as a sophomore this season he put up 12.7 PPG.

The lack of a couple of those did us in this season. We have a serious need.

Looks like a decent three point shooter. Otherwise not too much to get excited about, especially that list of schools. I also hope our remaining underclassmen can become relevant this year. The last thing I want to see is a revolving door of transfer players every year.

That list didn't do much for me either. I saw UAB so I posted it.

South Alabama transfer Tyreke Locure (@locuretyreke3) has told me that UAB, New Orleans, SIU, UCSD, Northern Arizona, and South Dakota State have contacted him since entering the portal.
Averaged 13.5 PPG as only a sophomore this season.

I just wonder why we have to find out this type of news from a HS sophomore via Adam Zagoria’s blog.

@HoopScoopMedia
Brandon McKissic @BMcKissic3 tells us he has heard from Oregon State, Tulsa, Missouri, VCU, St. Louis, Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, UAB, and more since entering the portal today.

McKissic averaged 17.3 points per game this year for UMKC, along with 3.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
