Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

Gotta figure Jennings knows he will get as much PT as he can handle and it will be immediate. Also, he has to  wonder “who will be my teammates?”

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

This is an absolutely fascinating off season.  We are realistically looking at as many as 10 new players on the team (assuming all scholarships are used).   Usually by the end of a season, we have a fairly good idea of our prospects for the next season.  Right now, if someone was to ask how GW looks for next season, I would say I don’t have a clue.  I love CCs having set a higher bar for incoming players and not settling simply to fill out a roster.  Of course, by June 1st, if we still have only  a 7 or 8 person roster, that may need to be tweaked a bit, but I trust Caputo (who appears to be a tireless worker) and feel good that we essentially have a clean slate

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

Qudus Wahab transferred from Georgetown in 2021 and returned for this season after struggling at Maryland, I see no reason why Bamisile can't do the same. Even with the new staff and only 2 players left from when he was at GW, we all know how productive he was in his one season at GW. 

I assume the George Mason transfers will follow Kim English to Providence, it will be interesting to see how Oduro, Fernandez and probably Polite fare in the Big East.

Virginia Tech junior guard Darius Maddox is in the portal, he attended St.John's in D.C. as an underclassman before transferring to Oak Hill for his senior year. He was teammates with Ish Leggett at St.John's, and GW may have recruited him, along with Leggett

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

Mentioned in another thread and I don't think he'll be a GW target but Tafara Gapare entered the portal today. Woof

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

I hope this kid figures it out. From what I can tell, he committed to GW in 2020, decommitted, took a prep year, committed to DePaul in 2022, decommitted, committed to UMass, joined UMass and is now transferring out.

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

Almost 1,100 transfers on VerbalCommits and we’re still playing basketball.  Guessing we'll go over 2,000.  Maybe well over 2,000.  

Counting 363 teams, maximum 13 scholarship players on each team, minus, say 20% graduating/going pro you end up with about 3,775 players eligible to transfer.  We could end up with ~55% of all eligible players transferring. 

I guess as a player you have three easy periods to (re)negotiate your NIL.  1) before you commit, 2) during your "free" transfer when you don't have to sit a year, or 3) if you graduate with eligibility, during your last year.  They're just working the system as it was designed.

Perhaps the NBA awaits?

Too soon?

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

I'm guessing it's going to take a while for the dust to clear, as players in the portal are trying to figure out where their best situation is.  A few of the bigger fish (who we don't realistically have a shot at) need to commit first and then we'll probably start seeing more action on our end.  Going forward, it's going to look pretty scary for most teams right after the season.

Props to David Korn for catching this. Max responds to the goodbye post from ex-teammate Ismael Massoud. May be something to keep an eye on. May be nothing at all

Ouch indeed. I believe that would account for over 25% of all scholarship players in the entire league.

Mason and VCU coaching changes have a huge effect on that. But yes still a big #

The Athletic just published their best transfers list. Looks like they’ll be updating it as more are added. Dropping here for visibility.

Names that stand out:   Jamison Battle, Jameer Nelson Jr, and 2 of the POY finalists in the A10 including the POY, Ace Baldwin as well as Oduro 

Also Caleb Love.   

Providence got a very big piece news with Bryce Hopkins saying he's staying under 1st year Coach Kim English

EJ Jarvis chose Florida. 

Hunter Dickinson, who might be the favorite for national player of the year next year, is a surprise entrant to the portal.

Re: 2023 Transfer Portal Szn

Fwiw. Fordham had signed two transfers and URI picked up one. Plus Angelo Brizzi from Villanova to Davidson.
