As opposed to wasting a year of his eligibility rotting away on the bench?

Like it or not the fact that they were "red-shirted" is going to bite us in future recruiting ... the fact that Penny recruited these kids; then "over-recruited" them by the late signing of Duren and Bates doesn't sit well .... While he might have convinced them that red-shirting was a good option at the time, the mid-season statements on now concentrating on the transfer portal just tells those kids that there really wasn't going to be a place for them ... Looks like next year the Tigers will be a team built on the Transfer Portal, and I'm guessing that we will never recruit anyone under a 5-Star type of Freshman again ... The 3 and 4-Star players see what is happening, and I don't see any of these type players coming here straight out of high school again ...

That seems rational and completely nondramatic. Most schools are going to be rebuilding every year through the portal moving forward, it will be the new reality of college basketball.

i think this is generally true, although i might expect to bring in local kids who want to be a part of the program who will not start right away.

The transfer portal will eliminate recruiting anyone who cannot play significant minutes right away, those 4-year type players will go to mid-majors or smaller programs where they can get minutes, then transfer out.

it's a whole new world..

Factually, though, Camden was injured early in the season and then needed surgery, so his RS can be explained.

Sam couldn't play dead in a Western movie, so there's that.

RE: Sam Onu....BOH
Y'all act like some of these decisions are not mutually agreed upon.
Redshirting is not going to "hurt" recruiting.
It's going to disappear.
Kids like Camden and Onu are going to sign with mid majors.
Then if they are any good, they will enter the portal and end up at places like Memphis.
It's happening everywhere, people.
