    Call me crazy but maybe the quarantine will help
    Mason in recruiting. Because on paper mason is a damn good school. But at the end of the day it’s a commuter school. But all schools will look like ghost towns right now. So fingers crossed!

    Over the last 3 days, there have been an average of 45 players per day in the transfer portal.

    The issue: Coaches can’t go out and meet with the transfers, and the transfers can’t go to campus, meet coaches, players, work out with team, etc.

    Gonna be a lot of mistakes made.

    6 foot 7 Mekhi Long transfers from URI. Freshman from Maryland that was a 4 star and seemed to be a pretty talented freshman for them last year with limited minutes.

    Aren’t there typically stipulations on transfers about transferring within the conference? I could be making that up.

    Frowned upon but nothing in writing. I think the losing school has to agree to it maybe?

    People say a lot of stupid shit on here lol. I’ve never heard of that rule but it’s possible. Maybe NCAA rules expert @Pablo can get on the case

    Lol yeah that’s 100% not the rule, not at the computer right now but I’ll look it up when at home.

    Edit- Pablo beat me to it and I was wrong as hell.

    I stand corrected, guess that’s an A10 only rule because it’s not that way in the rest of the NCAA.

    By George retweeted a Davidson stat that they've not had a player leave via transfer since entering the A10.

    Pitino is on a roll, and he's been on the job less than two weeks. He already has 6 recruits committed. Three of his recruits are 6'8" one kid who's 7'1" I believe, and just a ton of players can really play.

    They will make the dance in Year 1. No doubt.

    These kids are legit too, this isn’t grabbing a bunch of Danny Dixon’s and Kam Murrells, they can play. Did everyone decommit when he got hired?

    What red-blooded American young man wouldn’t want to play for a coach who pays to bring hookers and strippers into the basketball dorm to service his players?

    Oh that’s right. Assistant coach Andre McGee did that. Pitino had no idea. :angel:
