2023 Portal Transfers
« on: March 13, 2023, 05:28:20 PM »
Did not see this topic yet, so figured to start one, since players are on the move now.  MU probably not looking, but at least this is where posters can put what they hear about players entering the portal and then their destinations. 

Jamari Lands, Louisville(former MU offer)

Primo Spears Georgetown

Primo Spears could turn into a nice player at a better program with good coaching.  He's a chucker right now.  I don't see him being as in demand as Akinjo was when he fled DC.

Yeah there is definitely something there for a team that needs guards.

If he can work on the 3 pt shot get it to a more respectable 33-35%

I'm a bit surprised Skyy Clark is in the portal and visiting schools.  He had originally decommitted from Kentucky to go to Illinois, and his brother ZZ also signed with Illinois but then decommitted to sign with Overtime Elite.  After Skyy left Illinois midseason, he was practicing at OTE, so I thought the writing was kind of on the wall that he was done with college basketball.

He’s probably seeing what NIL offers are out there

This is stupid. I don't know what the NCAA was thinking to have the Portal open on the Monday after Selection Sunday. The window should stay closed until the Tuesday after the National Championship. Would there still be some rumors and back door discussions? Sure, but at this point of the season, coaches should be focused on the Tournament, not watching to see who's available for next year. I hate that in the middle of NCAA Tournament discussions, portal stuff is coming up. I'm all in favor of player movement and freedom, but you have a semester to finish and no one will be done with that for 2 months. You have to finish the academic year anyway, keep the goddamn portal closed until we're done enjoying the best month of sports. Seriously, unnatural carnal knowledge the NCAA on this decision. Totally unnatural carnal knowledgeed up.

Agree. Hope they change it next year. What’s 3 weeks less of transfer portal?

I suspect the NCAA didn’t want a situation where coaches were free to accept new jobs during the tournament but players were still frozen out. But I agree that it would be better if schools were prohibited from hiring new coaches and recruiting transfers during at least the first two weeks of the tournament.

Yeah I can see opening it up a week prior to the Final Four even. But one of the other problems is that programs want to have coaches in place ASAP prior to the portal opening. Or ant least shortly after.  And at the mid and low major level, those are often high major assistants who are often a little busy these days.

Does Spears need to sit a year since he already has one transfer?  Or does the coaching change make that moot?

Hearing that Musselmann spent more time on portal recruiting than game prep in March last year is just ridiculous.

Doesn’t seem to have helped much, hopefully he does the same this year and goes down to the Illini.

Can’t imagine Shaka will have to spend a lot of time considering the portal this year, that must feel good for him.

Going off memory but didn’t Arkansas beat #1 overall seed Gonzaga and go to the elite 8 last year? I think it worked out fine for them

I imagine the assistants do most of the scouting

Autry, Syracuse's new coach, was the reason given by Starling for choosing Syracuse.

I would bet growing up in the suburbs of Syracuse was an even bigger factor.

Well, he said the reason was Autry, but what does he know? He should have checked with you first before making that statement.
