Transfer Portal 2022


Recommended Posts

I think the decision some of these kids make also hinge on what they want for their careers...

In the Big 10 so far, kids like Mike Smith, Chaundee Brown, Devonte Jones, and Cedric Russell have had to go from being "the man" to fitting in with better teammates.

Kids like Fatts Russell, Jamison Battle, and Payton Willis who went to bad teams, played well and enhanced their future, and did make their teams better, but still had a sub .500 Big 10 record.

Sounds like another Kopp pick up. Specialist that aren’t so special…and kill us on the defensive end.

He's a better shooter than Kopp, has a quicker release, and doesn't hesitate. As I said, he's not a bad on the ball defender (and I don't think Kopp is either)...

And I think some get the wrong impression...not like I want him at IU. I started this thread thinking National/Big 10/IU as far as portal talk goes...

Yeah, something was really off with Ahrens last year. For three years, he was a guy who'd come in off the bench and just nail dagger after dagger. He never looked confident last season.

Hell yes, if TJD doesn't come back

I've not seen any video on him but the measurables and the numbers are impressive. Even if TJD comes back, Broome would have to be an upgrade over Durr. 12 blocks in one game this year.

I watched him in the conference tournament the last two years and he looked really good

No chance he's looking to be a backup

VMI center Jake Stephens plans to enter the transfer portal, he told ESPN. Will be a graduate transfer. First-team All-SoCon selection. 19.6 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 3.3 APG — 6-foot-11 and shoots 49% from 3. Will be a highly sought-after transfer.

Gotta think with tons of good players entering the portal, surely this staff nabs a couple.

Does anyone think KJ Williams from Murray State would be a good pickup?

He shoots the 3 ok…can face up some. At the B1G level not sure he would fair nearly as well as he did at Murray but we could do far worse. If we lose our front court and we can’t land a more athletic big I wouldn’t hate it. He just took advantage of his size in the OVC but he won’t have that advantage here.

According to the Bucknut fans I know, their opinion was that Ahrens started "sucking" when conference play rolled around for some reason.  A couple of them even said he was getting way too many minutes coming down the stretch.

But yeah, what I saw of him this year he just couldn't hit shots.  Not the same guy I saw early on.
