Take a look now at the Sycamores in the transfer portal.....not a good sign.Only noticed one guy we previously offered on there, C Jaylen Butz leaving DePaul. Oops, there are two. Nick Robinson of Valpo is on there, too.
Also in "now I feel old as shit" news, Jameer Nelson Jr. is in the transfer portal.
I'm surprised that coach has been able to stay. Lots of transfers.Its getting hard to enjoy mid-major basketball when everybody transfers that’s worth half a shit And it takes a 27-3 record with NO bad loses to be on the good side of the bubble. It’s getting ridiculous.
as a side note, I work in valpo with some guys that know a player on Valpos team and their source says it’s a complete divide in the VU locker room. No accountability, players show up 30 min late to required team events, back talk in practice, etc.
Way more players in the portal than spots available. As such, some of our guys will be forced to either 1) accept the new coach or 2) take a step down.
Laravia and Williams are two exceptions, sure, and losing them will hurt. But transfers will be brought in to replace their minutes. I am also interested to see how many high school offers go out as soon as Schertz is officially hired.
