Mitchell fits the Shaka profile but I have my doubts that’s the type of player they’d add in the portal.  I wouldn’t hate it, though.

Hunter has been underwhelming during his career.  Stevie Mitchell has been a better player (Thanks, Wojo!).  However, with question about Sean, he would be a fit for depth purposes and definitely can run an offense.  Wouldn’t hate it either.

Wonder if Ole Miss aren’t likely destinations, though.
Ramsey head thoroughly up his ass.

I'm glad Shaka thought Tyler Kolek was his type of player.

Not to mention Kur, Morsell, and OMax.

Except each of those guys was brought in during Shaka's 1st season when he had a lot of open spots and had to build a team.  Not sure how much relevance that has now when he's got 12 guys on the roster.

Dillon Mitchell is a decent player but not someone that fills any need we have. He’s a good rebounder and defender and crazy athlete but that’s it. Can’t shoot 3s at all and not tall enough to play center
Agreed, he seems to underachieve relative to his skill level and athleticism. 'Course, Shaka could get more out of him.
If you think for one second that I am comparing the USA to China you have bumped your hard.

Give me Jeremy Roach on a 1 year $1 mil deal. Him and Kam would be the best guard duo in the country

A bunch of the big dogs will be interested. Tough one for Dayton as they were looking to have a very solid roster if Holmes sticks around, though that is unlikely.

Jaden Schutt from Duke is in the portal. He's a shooter from Yorkville, Illinois. I think he'd have 3 years left, but I guess he has an injury history. https://twitter.com/TiptonEdits

About as one dimensional as you can get. Averaged 2 points a game on non-threes. There is value, but not a well rounded player.

Not sure on the advanced stats but it at least wasn’t allergic to rebounds or passing.

My bigger worry is that while it was impressively his highest volume this was also easily his best shooting season.

Could come back to earth. Or potentially thrive in a offense like ours

TJ Bamba in the portal.  I believe that's now the top 7 rotation players gone for one reason or another for Nova.
I'll stick with my opinion on Gold.  He'll be in foul trouble within the first eight minutes.

He has declared while maintaining eligibility so he has the potential to return, but there have also been rumors that if he comes back to college it won't be at Nova.

I would love to see Shaka get to 10-0 (at least) against Nova as Marquette's head coach.

Did Dixon already bounce forsure? I thought he was still open to returning

This articles says he's gone, but looking at the actual statement that he put out it doesn't say anything about hiring an agent/hiring a non NCAA approved agent, so I'm not 100% sure either way.

That being said, why would you go back to what will be an awful season?

According to Tommy Goodin who is apparently a writer for VUHoops, Dixon is maintaining his eligibility so he could choose to return to Nova. No idea how well informed Goodin is

Correct but he kept his eligibility.

But like DJo said, not sure why he’d wanna do a year 5 on that roster for that coach

Did a little research on Derin Saran.  He played PG in HS and averaged 19.8 ppg, 8.1 rpg, and 7.2 apg as a senior.

Played SG at UC-Irvine next to a 5th year senior that had a 43.7% assist rate.  Saran was 2nd on the team with a 17.3% assist rate.

Maybe Saran's the transfer G most like freshman year Kolek.

I was just coming to this thread to say that I watched his Transfer Portal highlights just now on my lunch break and he looks really good. He can really create for himself and others and has a really nice looking shot. 6'5" too.

He's my favorite of our candidates by far. Also played for a 1st place team in the Big West that went 17-3 in Conference and 24-10 overall which is a nice bonus!

Oumar Ballo to Indiana.
Selton Miguel to Maryland.
Vlad Goldin to Michigan.

Is UW in the running to be the 1st team in B1G history to take 18th place?

He's quickly becoming my favorite transfer target, too. A good player on a good team with some untapped potential. 10 ppg in only 19 mpg.

Very solid advanced metrics.  High usage, good efficiency and he maintains both against top 100/50.

He also gets to the rim a ton.  58.1% of his FGA and he shot 57.7% at the rim.

Full offensive breakdown from T Rank:


https://barttorvik.com/playerstat.php?year=2024&p=Derin%20Saran&t=UC%20Irvine


And looks to be at least a solid defender.  DBPM +1.8 with a 2.9% steal rate.

Really good looking prospect.  Would be very pleased if Shaka lands him.
