    You are mostly right about Sherman. Add in that he didnt want to play center and thats all he played at LT and he was under utilized (20mpg) and you have a recipe for xfer.

    You miss the mark big time on Harris. Im not going to get into opinions (stank attitude, wanting to shoot all the shots) because I know that to be false and its not worthy of an anonymous debate. The "no defense" label is easy to throw around because few people understand or pay attention to good defense unless someone is getting a block, steal or charge. Harris rated as 1 of the best defensive players this year. Not my opinion...stats.

    Points allowed Per Possession defended
    Harris - .705
    Boykins - 1.09
    Jean - .806
    Bracey - .762

    FG% Def
    Harris - 34.1%
    Boykins - 46.6%
    Jean - 35.5%
    Bracey - 32%

    %TO (% of possessions defended that led to TO)
    Harris - 19.7%
    Boykins - 9.4%
    Jean - 10.1%
    Bracey - 12.3%


    I have more stats, but I think you get the picture. Feel free to hate every kid that stays/leaves the program for whatever reason you want. But dont try to convince others to do the same using false narratives.

    DFW is a HOTBED full of talent right now. Will be hard to recruit when 2-3 kids transfer within a year. And it probably wouldve been 4 had Slim not retired. Something to think about.
    WHO they guard is significant. Might want to include the ppg avg in order to get an appropriate read.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    But as a player with size and talent you have to put yourself in a position to further your career by showcasing your skills as best as possible. He transferred from Miami to tech. He could have gone somewhere else and played PF. I wonder if he knew about Joniah’s health issues beforehand. Was he just told he’s coming to play with a true 7 footer?

    A lot goes into these decisions.

    Does anyone really know why Sherman and Harris left? Not the butt-hurt fan reasons, but the real reasons.

    You can reasonably assume why the others left.
    Q (sr), Robinson (sr) , Griffin (White), Walker (walk-on), Holden (White) and Sheppard (White)

    But those 1st 2 were in this staff's 1st recruiting class and had all-conference potential.

    You’re right. Imagine if we had him, Stapleton, griffin, Harris right now.

    Yes...it absolutely does. Unfortunately that statistic isnt tracked. But LT does a lot of switching so they take turns guarding each others man. Although you would hope your best defender starts the possession on their best player more often than not.

    The overarching point was that even if he was guarding the worst player on the court the whole game...he was not a liability nor disinterested in playing D. By avg, he still leads the team in spg and the guards in bpg...and played fewer minutes.

    more than likely...but you also wouldnt have to play 3 freshmen either. Talent-wise...this team would be P5-level.

    I wondered about Stapleton when you mentioned him, so I looked him up. This season at MsState he is averaging 6 points a game and was arrested for disturbing the peace.
