And now 6'11" Essandoko has decommitted.

“The relationship and communication have changed between them and my parents, my handler, and me,” Essandoko tells On3. “I was supposed to enroll early In January, but it didn’t happen, so I think it was the best choice for me as a student-athlete.”

My "handler?"

Also rumors that the reason he didn't enroll in January was because his transcript was a mess.

Strange word choice, but the kid is from France (which may also explain the word choice) and his family is still there. So, it makes sense that he would have someone stateside helping him through the recruiting process.

I wonder if Steve Lavin recruits some Big East players out of the transfer portal. He has been studying the league for many years and knows all the talent.

Update time. Lots of changes in the past few days:

Butler:
Landed Akron transfer Ali Ali, best transfer into the conference so far
Bo Hodges does not have a COVID year left and is moving on

Creighton:
Little used reserve PF Modestas Kancleris is in the transfer portal

DePaul:
Javon Freeman-Liberty has declared for the NBA

Georgetown:
Aminu Mohammed and Don Carey have both declared for the NBA draft. They both techincally left the door open to return but the tea leaves seem to say that it is either going pro or into the portal

Providence:
Minaya is going pro and will not use his COVID year
Top rated 2022 recruit Crist Essandoko has decommitted

Seton Hall:

Wanna be JP Marcura Adam Kunkel announced that's returning for a third year of having one good game a season against Marquette

Biggest Big East roster questions left on the board:

Will Justin Lewis go pro?
Will AJ Reeves use his Covid year?
Will Jared Rhoden go pro?
Will Adama Sanogo go pro?
Will Branson Slater and Caleb Daniels use their COVID years?

Each one has massive implications for the landscape of the Big East next season

1. Aminu Mohammed has not formally declared. This claim came from Stockrisers.com but he is not on a formal early entrant list...yet.

2. Wayne Bristol was on the 2021-22 roster but did not see any time.

3. There is chatter about more transfers. Georgetown doesn't need this.

For the Georgetown basketball diehards, where are they at? Hoping it goes bad enough that Ewing is out next year? Still thinking he can resurrect it? Resigned to falling into mediocrity?
Why won't Kur Kuath answer my DMs?

Kunkel, Jones, Freemantle, Nunge is already a very formidable starting 4. All it needs is a PG to make it all go. If they land Pinson, assuming no surprise defections, Xavier is going to be very good next season. Maybe win the Big East good if they kind find some depth to backup that starting 5.

I was really high on the Xavier train going into this year and they vastly underperformed.

Signing Pinson would be a massive get for them and make them a menace in the conference as well as a player on the national stage next season.

The only guy that moves the needle for me of those four is Jones. If one of Freemantle or Nunje were an athletic board eater that’d be a much better pairing. As it is, those two are kind of redundant.

That’s not a bad thing - Worked well for Purdue this season. They’re both very different posts (I think they can play together) but if they don’t, you have two really good players going a full 40. Tough to manage as an opponent.

I think Miller will get a lot more out of those 4 than Steele did
