Right , any freshman years ago would have laced up his sneakers in early January to get back on the court to impress the coaches . He came from a small Christian school in CNY and now he suddenly feels he's Big East talent ?

I totally understand TJ Cline transferring to the A10 since he DEMONSTRATED some skill and talent on the floor . Waterman was raw as the hamburg meat at the grocery store.

Misguided is an under statement IMO.

Obviously the kid is dreaming of bigger sugar plumbs in his head. He didn't show much on the court during his short time, nor did he make any real effort to return according to sources. I wish him the best.

Or maybe Noah came here in the fall.. lived through the gong show.. got hurt... and even though liking Greg.. wanted a fresh start.. Can you blame the kid?

msm, any comment from Paulus or out of Noah's camp? I didn't see one in the NFG this morning from either side. I'm guessing it wouldn't be more than the usual "we wish him the best" or "I love NU but it was time to move on" from either side. Just wondering.

As for his replacement. Planutis makes sense. Prior to Noahs departure, I wasn't keen on the idea of bringing in a veteran big unless the were far and away better than Kuak and Kratholm. I thought it would stunt the development of Noah and Traore. Now, you have to.

Nah, neither returned my request to chat.

Entering the transfer portal does not necessarily mean a kid will transfer.

He's a 19 year-old kid, sentiments can change fast!

I, too, explored transferring in the spring of my freshman year....didn't, and it was the best decision of my life!

If that blurb is true, it's a victory for him if he's picked up by a top 20 team or a contending team in a top 6 conference, but what are the chances of that? Isn't it more likely with his thin resume that he'll end up on a team with a Sagarin ranking below 90 and more probably 120?
