2024 Transfer Portal Szn

Never too early to start speculating on transfer targets

@JonRothstein 
Syracuse has dismissed Benny Williams, per release.

Assuming this is not for any serious issue, may be someone we want to bring home as an experienced front court player.  Looks like Miami offered him out of high school so Caputo may have some relationship with him.

Very leery of those dismissed from teams, but given our numerous relationship ties with Syracuse, we should be able to find out why he was dismissed.

Re: 2024 Transfer Portal Szn

Seems like it was attitude concerns in terms of him refusing to go back into games and disrespecting the coaches. Apparently he'd been suspended twice earlier in the year and it seems like the final straw was his behavior after the game Saturday when he spit on the floor, refused to participate in the handshake line and intentionally bumped into Red Autry as he was leaving the court.

I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole but there are some connections that can be made: Miami offer out of high school, a current GW player's dad is the Syracuse coach (along with a former assistant being on the staff as well), he's from Maryland and attended St. Andrew's Episcopal
