    Isaiah Wright and Chris Reyes also transferring from Utah. Don't think Wright has much promise, but Reyes could be useful. Sophomore and Junior respectively.

    Really shocked to see Cullen Neal transferring away from UNM. Seemed like a done deal that he would play for his dad when he left SMC.

    Spike for next year so the Zags play with 3 point guards? Who would he replace? Savon would be a good addition but there must be some big issue if Hurley wants him gone, they can't afford to lose anybody.

    There are ( there will be more) few decent players of on each list. Overall though, I don't see anybody I'd trade for any kid in our top 8 for next year..........We seriously have a FF potential in the season coming up. Surely swt 16 or more. Almost a lock if Domas returns. PLUS if you see the kids interact, they really like each other. THAT's hard to find.

    Mostly a bunch of "who are these guys?" Looks like fairly large exodus at UNLV and Missouri. Some of those guys were fairly highly rated at one point, not sure how they've done so far in college.

    Apparently some of the "fans" didn't think enough winnin' was goin' on & death threats were being made. Really weak.

    Why?? Not sure what a 5-10 backup point guard who averaged 5pts. per game over his career would add to the team. Would be a waste of a scolly.

    Here is my All-Graduate Transfer Team (I have 13 scholarships to use here):

    PG: Spike Albrecht, Michigan, 5'11" 175 lbs
    We need to throw away what he did in 2016 and look back at 2015. He had a very impressive 112.0 offensive rating (efficient scorer) while taking 14.5% of available shots (pass-first distributor). He had a nationally ranked assist rate of 25.6 and an outstanding turnover rate (17.3%) for a guard. But more importantly for my fictional squad here, he shot 37.2% from three point range on 35 for 94 shooting. Since I'm not going to have much size, I need to make teams defend our shooters. He also shot 91.3% from the free throw line, which means we should be able to hold a lead. Backing him up is Tony Hicks of Penn. He is a volume shooter that can create his own shot. Unfortunately, he is very inefficient (93.1%). Most of that is due to his low shooting percentage inside the arc (I'd have him on strict instructions to drive and dish rather than throw junk up at the rim). He has a good 24.4 assist rate but tends to turn the ball over a little too much. Like Albrecht, he shoots better than 37% from three.

    SG: Avery Woodson, Memphis, 6'2" 189
    He is the most efficient scoring graduate transfer available with an offensive rating of 120.2 and a three point shooting percentage of 43. He made 77 three pointers in 2016 while taking only 18.4% of available shots. I'd ask him to shoot more, but he is the perfect guard to help stretch the defense and create driving lanes. While he rarely passes the ball, he also almost never turns it over. Backing him up, and definitely a change of pace, is 6'6" 190 lbs Malcolm Bernard from Florida A&M. Bernard is a guard-forward who does everything (except shoot) very well. He won't score many points but he has an incredible 31.8 assist rate (56th nationally - not bad for a wing), blocks shots, and is top 50 in steals as well. On an under-sized team it may be nice to have a guard that can rebound, block shots, and distribute to the open shooters.

    SF: Austin Arians, Milwaukee, 6'6" 200 lbs:
    Adding another shooter is critical. 35.5% from three, 76 on the season, and a respectable 113.8 offensive rating. He will hunt his shot, never pass to an open teammate, and never turn the ball over. Defense is optional for him. He shot 84.6% from the line. He'll be splitting time with Katin Reinhardt out of USC (6'6" 220 lbs). Reinhardt can shoot just as well or better than Arians, is equally selfish with the ball, and somehow less engaged when getting rebounds and playing defense. Still, he is an efficient scorer that doesn't foul who can find his own shot.

    PF: Savon Goodman, Arizona State, 6'6" 215 lbs:
    I said we'd be undersized. Goodman is a beast on the glass that can block a few shots and plays solid defense. He takes too many shots for someone with a 100.4 Orating, but that number is lower than it should be due to his 46% from the free throw line (we'd try to get him out of close and late games where we have the lead). Backing him up is USC's Darion Clark (6'7" 220). Looking back at Clark's limited minutes in 2015, you can see a player that is dedicated to rebounding (unbelievable numbers 16.4% Offensive rebounding, 26.5% defensive rebounding) and blocking shots. He shoots free throws as well as Goodman (which means he is horrible) and is basically an energy guy off the bench.

    C: Darrell Bowie, Northern Illinois, 6'7" 220 lbs:
    Calling Bowie a center is a bit of a stretch but looking back on his 2015 numbers he played a bit of power forward from time to time. In his limited minutes he played hard, drawing a lot of fouls, blocking shots and being top-100 in steals. He was solid on the glass. He took too many shots but we need someone with a little skill and shooting inside, and he is the best I could find on the list. Backing him up is 7'0", 240 lbs Andre Washington out of Wake Forest. He didn't do anything worth mentioning at Wake Forest, but once upon a time he was a three star high school recruit (so he has to be kind of good, right?). He did block 14.8% of the shots while on the court 8% of the minutes in 2015. I need some size on this squad though. Maybe I can put him in front of the rim in the zone and use some of the length on the wings to duplicate Syracuse's success.

    My final three spots:

    Kale Abrahamson, Drake, 6'8" 218: A skilled small forward, Abrahamson took way too many shots for Drake but probably needed to. He doesn't pass much or rebound all that well, but this squad may need him to play power forward at times. He took 154 three pointers, so he could be used to stretch the defense and force bigger 4-men to guard him on the perimeter.

    Aaron Scales, Cleveland State, 6'9" 260 lbs: He is a big guy that can block shots and has a knack for using all 5 of his fouls. He is also pretty solid on the offensive glass.

    Patrick Steeves, Harvard, 6'7" 220 lbs: An interesting player because he has some size. Was okay when it comes to efficiency. Stretches defense with 47.1% three point shooting. Blocks shots (3.2% 374th nationally) and is fairly disruptive on defense. He isn't the greatest rebounder, but he'd have a chance to earn minutes at forward.


    This team would go as far as its guards could take it. They'd probably play a lot of 4 guard (Albrecht, Hicks, Woodson, Bernard/Arians/Reinhardt) while rotating aggressive big men at the post.

    If GU could pick one of them for the upcoming season I'd want someone that could shoot and pass to back up our guards. So that'd be Albrecht or Hicks.

    Is Jessie Wade scheduled to come in the year after next? Like he would come in during NWG's senior year and Perk's junior year? As basically number guard off the bench with Melson and PTBNL? Quite the depth at least that year.

    Interesting. Had some big-time stats at a smaller school, and some nice size.

    Thx.

    So, that doesn't impact graduate transfers, but possibly impacts when they will want to recruit next generation of guards? In 2017, NWG Sr. Melson Sr. Perk Jr., Norvelle Soph., Wade Frosh, so sounds like guard a priority in off-season for 2017, not an issue for this thread. Thx.

    I saw Patrick Steeves name there and remembered that he was pretty well thought of out of High School.

    Three point shooting @47.1% and defence from the SF position....

    Big time player. If we got him and Sabonis came back we would be final four good.
