2018 Transfer Market
 
@coreyevans_10
Georgetown guard Tre Campbell has been given his release to transfer, per source; will graduate and immediately be eligible next year as a grad-transfer

Played for Anthony Solomon at Georgetown. Sat out this year with an injury. Didn't put up great numbers throughout his career with the Hoyas but he's battled injuries.

Considering the state of the bench he could be a good depth guy for a year

On the one hand, this dude scored 21 points (5 for 7 from three!) to pretty much beat then #5 ranked Xavier single-handedly on Jan. 19, 2016. That game was at Xavier.

On the other hand, Tre Campbell did virtually nothing else his entire career.

So I guess it all depends on which hand I'm looking at. It's kind of fun to look at the one that smacked the crap out of Xavier though.

OSU Flyer 02-14-2018 06:06 PM

one year scholarship, if he could play 5-10 minutes off the bench without turning the ball over that'd be win after this year

We need Wright State center Loudon Love to graduate ASAP and transfer to UD. I know he's only a freshman, but....

FWIW, how did that kid get a visit to WSU without UD at least informally and unofficially talking to him? I know he was injured as a senior...but he's a Royal stud.

He might end up giving up basketball to be a tackle

He was being recruited hard by Nagy while he was at SDSU.....He also was a better HS football player but tore up his knee his senior year. Gave him time to lose almost 30 pounds while RS last year..

He was only a 2 star recruit at best and he was not being recruited by Duke and Kentucky. Can you imagine the melt down on this board if we stooped so low as to recruit someone who only Wright State and South Dakota State was interested in? Results mean nothing, its all about the stars....pay attention

rollo 02-15-2018 10:02 AM

Who needs to have a conversation with a 6'9" 270 lb 2-star when you have Sam Miller frequenting MILF-loaded Beavercreek dive-bars and Kostas Atapotapenko and Jordan Piece signed, sealed and delivered? Oh, and with a virtual consensus regarding Atapotapenko being a 1-amd-done, I guess it's understandable that Archie wouldn't be paying attention...and why would he? He was already working on his next gig.

I agree, King Rollo, he is one of the best young centers I have seen this year. But what amazes me is this - so many teams we play, including the D-2 exhibition teams, have good big men. Why is it that we cannot nail down big men? This is one of our most serious needs this year.

San Diego Flyer 02-15-2018 10:36 AM

Well, if DD was available as a transfer this year, just looking at his stats and highlight clips, how many here would take him? Not knowing any more than that, I think most would. Most would take him over Vee Sanford.

He would be a major get for some club that had several veteran point guards because DD would not have to ever take more than one dribble.

This transfer thingy is a crap shoot. Staton's transfer to WV ended up boosting the morale of two teams.

Just sayin'. You just don't know.

OSU Flyer 02-15-2018 10:39 AM

Middle Tennessee, Western Kentucky, Cal Santa Barbara, Boise State and VCU all got impact grad transfers last year so there's certainly an opportunity to upgrade the roster

Atapotapenko!!!

Did you just turn Kostas Antetokoumpo into former Wright State great Vitaly Potapenko?

Not a one and done, but at least one of those guys was an NBA lottery pick.

Begging for some bench help
 
We need a build-a-bench app.

Hopefully Obidiah Toppin will be able to spell Landers effectively. He could be the player we thought X was going to be this year.

Cohill can fill DD's role and maybe play some point. The other 4 starters are fine.

What we need off the bench is some beef. I hope it's in the plan somewhere.

When you look for transfers, think muscle.

I posted this twice because building the bench deserves twice the urgency.

Finding depth guys on the grad transfer market is eminently doable

I could be wrong, but a lot of the grad-transfer guys aren't looking to be depth on an A-10 team. If they are looking to leave their current team it's usually for playing time or a chance to win.

I'm not sure a bench role on our team will seem that appealing. If we get a grad-transfer - my guess is it will be a post player who can get some big minutes.

look at the situation here.

If you're a guy like Tre Campbell for instance who got mentioned earlier in the thread. With what he's shown so far he's transferring way down if he wants a guaranteed 30 minutes a night and to be the "guy".

AG is willing to start 4 guards we lose DD. There's no depth right now and plenty of minutes to earn off of the bench. He very reasonably could see a chance to come in compete for a starting job or be the first guard off the bench. That very well could be more compelling then a more sure starting spot getting 30 minutes a game for Maryland Eastern Shore.

Right now the chance is there for someone to come in, compete and earn some major minutes

Comparing Obadiah, Xeyrius and Landers interesting.

XEYRIUS
Going into this season, we were excited about Xeyrius based off his ability to do two things as a sophomore - very good perimeter shooting (41.5% from 3!) and rebounding (4.8 per game). My concern with Xeyrius going into the season was that he was a bit of a blackhole, a 3 point chucker, who offered little else on offense. Besides his shooting, he doesn't really possess any guard-like skills. His height and quick release allows him to shoot over guys. So that's what he does. And it's all he's ever done. This goes back to high school where as a late bloomer he averaged 11.8 points and 9.9 rebounds a game as a senior at Wayne.

LANDERS
Trey Landers has a much more well rounded game than Xeyrius. A true tweener at 6-4, Trey can't just be content to shoot over guys like Xeyrius. His height would dictate he's a guard, and he has guard like skills. He can penetrate and create offense. But he's built like a tank, strong enough to finish at the rim. And strong enough to bang with forwards. At Wayne, as a senior, he averaged 16.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Thus far into his sophomore campaign at Dayton, he's averaging 9.9 points, 5 rebounds and 1.8 assists and 1 steal per game.

OBADIAH
Like Xeyrius, Obadiah was a late bloomer. He was 6-foot-2 as a high school junior, 6-foot-5 as a senior and is now 6-foot-8. Basically this is a guy who thought he was a guard,only to wake up in a forward's body. Toppin averaged 17 points, eight rebounds and four assists during his final prep season at Mount Zion. Compare those numbers to that of Landers, and they are almost identical to Landers senior numbers at Wayne.

CONCLUSION
If you're hoping that Obadiah can fill in for Landers, I don't think that's delusional thinking. There's hope there.

Toppin has a very different body type than Landers. Toppin is much taller and Landers appears much stronger.

Absolutely. Toppin is built like Xeyrius. Landers is built like a bulldog. But what I find encouraging about Toppin is that he has a well-rounded game. In that sense, he is more similar to Landers. Toppin and Landers play differently, but stuff the stat sheet similarly if that makes any sense.

Best way I can explain is with the following scenario... One defender stands between said player and the rim. What happens?

Toppin: tries to jump over the dude and dunk
Landers: tries to go right through the dude and dunk
Xeyrius: Shoots a three

But IMO they can both make it work. The functionality can be achieved. Just like we can replace DD's numbers, Pollard's numbers et.al. Similar approach, different bodies.

OSU Flyer 02-17-2018 05:20 PM

South Carolina guard Kory Holden is leaving the program. Former Delaware transfer scored just 47 points in 14 games this season after averaging 17.7 at Delaware

Flyer68 02-18-2018 10:30 AM

So Holden went from being a Blue Hen to a Gamecock. That did not go well. Maybe he should find a team known as the "eggs" and start all over.

If he could not make it at South Carolina, what makes us think he will be good for us. I would rather build on what we have now than a player doing his second transfer.

OSU Flyer 02-18-2018 10:55 AM

I don't think we necessarily need a star or an all conference player. We need depth at guard in the worst way. Someone who can play 10-15 minutes off the bench maybe provide some scoring and not be a net negative when he's in the game is major asset to the roster.

Holden takes up a scholarship for a year so there's no long term commitment. He was injured much of the year for SC but there's evidence from Delaware he can play. Best case scenario he finds his form from Delaware, worst case he can play some minutes off the bench and give the team more than Crosby or Westerfield did.

Ideally next year Westerfield or a walk won't be playing in the first half of a game and Cutch/Landers/J. Davis won't play close to 40 minutes a night or more in OT.

Right now it's Cohill and that's it for next year. A grad transfer takes up a scholarship for a year so it's low risk in terms of being stuck with someone. Presumably after 3-4 years in college basketball they'll be ahead of a freshman defensively and more capable of hitting the ground running

Ryan Bass is a perfect example of this. He's exactly the kind of one year rental that could pay off next year

DallasFlyer 02-18-2018 11:11 AM

Dayton is going to have significant scholarships to give. Holden would be a good addition. With the relationship Frank Martin at South Carolina has with Anthony Grant, I am sure Martin would put in a good word.

Ryan Bass is not a good example of a transfer that worked out. I believe that our best transfer was Dave Colbert from Cleveland State (84’ to 86’).

We already have one JUCO, Jhery Matos that has 2 years of eligibility so we could welcome one more grad transfer especially a big! Anthony Grant is a great recruiter so let us not forget that we have offers out to Frankie Policelli and Philmon Gebrewit. Either one would be a plus to our front line.

Would his game appeal to the Flyers?

Smith picked Illinois over more than 20 scholarship offers. His other finalists were Duke, Michigan State and Kansas State.

Walker is listed as a junior because he will take a medical red shirt for this year and those really aren't granted until the senior year if memory serves me correctly. The real question is if he will graduate this year. That will save the transfer year.

Lifelong Flyer Fan 03-06-2018 03:34 PM

He is reportedly graduating May.

He had a Kentucky offer too. He was committed to Missouri as pitcher but blew up late in basketball. I don't think he's gonna have the same level of interest this go around

He only played 35 minutes this year so the odds are pretty high that he gets it

The reports are saying he's graduating so all we can go off is that but it would strange to put those out there if it wasn't true

jack72 03-06-2018 05:12 PM

So if Walker graduates and transfers, can he play right away and for two years?

1 year for sure, I'd say virtual certainty of getting a medical redshirt for only playing 35 minutes this year for a second year

Flyer68 03-06-2018 05:33 PM

Mark Smith picks Illinois over 20 scholarships from top basketball schools. I would guess that he picked Illinois because he could play right away. Or maybe because there was pressure on Mr. Basketball to remain instate. Then he does not set the world on fire. Now he wants out?

Should there not be a red flag here? Something is not right in Illinois. Just saying.

OSU Flyer 03-06-2018 06:04 PM

his public explanation is that the system they run is a bad fit for him

"He has the ability to influence the game in all facets--he averaged 12.9 points on 58.6 percent shooting while adding 9.7 rebounds and nearly one block per game--makes him an indispensable cog."

He would be a great complement to Josh Cunningham and I'm sure Josh would welcome the help! I hope we get this kid!

HIgh shot percentage, good FT shooter. Not sure that body and knee holds up in the A10 ... but who knows. Guy can pass and be a good team player.

Calixte had 3 boards and 3 assists per game to go along with his 17 points per game. His shooting pct was pretty abysmal his first 3 years. Then improved to 47% with much more playing time.

Down side is he is 5 foot 11"

poor shooting % but only a Rookie. 6 points a game in 19 minutes a game.

A member of the Atlantic Sun All-Freshman team last season and a 17 point per game scorer during his sophomore campaign this winter, James Scott has asked for his transfer from Kennesaw State, sources have told Rivals.

Scott, a 6-foot-5 guard-wing, was a top-10 scorer within the Atlantic Sun Conference this season while knocking in over 34 percent of his 3-point attempts and over 80 percent of his foul shot attempts; he also finished the year among the tops of his league’s leaderboard in field goals made, steals and minutes played.

Boosting his scoring numbers by close to eight points per contest from his freshman to sophomore seasons, Scott posted some of his best outings against higher level competition. During the out of conference portion of the season, he scored 26 against Butler, 17 against Florida State, 21 against Washington and 19 against Texas Tech. He completed the season by scoring over 20 points in four of his final five contests and scored in double figures in over 80 percent of his games.

Cornell guard Wil Bathurst will be a grad transfer. Missed the final 3/4 of the season with an injury. Was averaging 7.1 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 3.1 apg prior to injury.

Bowling Green sophomore PG Roderick Caldwell is transferring.

High school teammates with Trey Landers and the lynch pin to Wayne's 2015 state championship team. Always felt like this kid could of played at UD.

Here is one of my favorite RC highlight tapes.
https://youtu.be/mVsvJ-69Gp0

Not only can he handle the ball. The step back and pull up jumper are lethal.

San Diego Flyer 03-14-2018 12:48 PM

Nice. Caldwell has Lander's swag and passion. Looks like he can break down the lane or hit the J. I like him.

Medford 03-14-2018 01:50 PM

I wrote about Caldwell a few years back when I saw Wayne take on Findley Prep. That Findley Prep team was loaded, Alzono Tier, a PG who graduated early and went started at Duke prior to transferring back west (forget the name), Justin Jackson (Maryland, some thought he'd be a lottery pick prior to getting hurt this year), some dude playing at Auburn I believe. Caldwell was fearless that night, he didn't back down for even a second, and it was obvious that Findlay Prep wasn't use to getting punched in the mouth. I thought at the time, that he would be a steal for some MAC level team, he's undersized and likely wouldn't get many looks from top 50 programs, but he'd make a huge difference at some MAC level school. I've followed his stats from time to time, and frankly he hasn't put up the numbers I expected/hoped that he would.

With one year off to develop, then 2 years (and ultimately in the same class as Crutcher) as a backup he may work. However CAG seems to be recruiting a bunch of PGs and its quite possible he could be relegated to the end of UD's bench by the time he's able to suit up.

Sounds like an energy guy

maddog07 03-14-2018 06:43 PM

Caldwell is at best an average guard in the MAC. He'd be at best a bench warmer for us, not as good as the two guards we have, who led us us to a losing record. Why on earth would we consider him? We need upgrades, very material upgrades, not downgrades.

We can confirm that Larry Austin Jr. & Payton Willis will be leaving the Vanderbilt Men’s Basketball program

Austin transferred to Vandy from Xavier. He'd be serviceable PG for a year to play 5-10 minutes off of the bench.

Willis was top 150 guy coming out of high school. Averaged He averaged 5.1 points, 1.9 rebounds & 1.4 assists this season as a Soph. Shot .349% from 3. 6'4

Without our two Frosh guards performing like they did, we might not have won 5 games.
If Anthony offers Caldwell he is likely to be good enough for the Flyers plans. I look for the next guard to have some size however.

Sid Louick 03-14-2018 07:54 PM

I would love to have one of those small, lightening-quick PGs like almost every other teams in the A-10.

Pittsburgh freshman Parker Stewart has asked for his full unconditional release, sources told ESPN. Terrific shooter. Averaged 9.1 points per game. Finished in top two in ACC play in 3's made, first in 3-point field goal percentage and top 3 in 3's made per game.

Played most of his high school career at Pickerington Central in Columbus. Dad was an Ohio assistant and now Tennessee Martin coach

Why would he be a downgrade? Because he didn't fit the system at Bowling Green? I have no problem with you disagreeing but at least have something to back yourself up.

How do you know he's not better than what we have? You don't. You are just making ridiculous statements but Hey, what else is new?

OSU Flyer 03-15-2018 06:15 PM

There's a lot better players on the board than Caldwell

Furio 03-15-2018 06:28 PM

The other issue with Caldwell is he would end up being in the same class as Crutcher. Not sure you want 2 point guards in the same class

I remember seeing the name in our recruiting threads. My only concern is, we already have a guy built like him (Kostas). If he'd come here, and we ran Tariq and Kostas out there at the same time, we could be like Spinal Tap and crank it up to 11 (because we'd have 2 guys standing side by side who would look like the number 11).

Well I seen him play and checked his stats. That's how!
He's a downgrade for sure and it's not like we have all stars now. He's undersized and not even acinsistant starter at a weak MAC school with a losing conference record and wins over absolutely no one of consequence he was marginal. In 31 games he averaged a whooping 2.5 baskets a game, 55 boards, shot 36.3 overall and 32.7 from 3.All, that all well below our two frosh and he's a sophomore. He's terrible and would be far worse in the A10. He wouldn't make Fordhams squad. Talk about ridiculous. Reread your post now.
