Thought I'd start a thread for transfers in/out for the other A-10 teams:
the dude3/11/2018 4:58:41 PM
Good thread, always interesting to see.
So far, the A10 has not really had its best players plucked out. I'd say GW has more so than other programs. Shaka took a recruit or 2 with him when he left, Tillman stayed. If Hurley bolts I wonder if the URI players do. Someone like Grady could play for just about any team in the country but Davidson has always kept their guys. From Steph, to Gibbs to Peyton etc.
As a league we've been winners in the transfer game. GW overall has been too.

Not sure what happened to Xeyrius Williams this year. I think he got injured, but he was supposed to be the X-factor (pun intended) for their team. I remember against us last year he couldn't miss from behind the arc and was thinking he was a potential future star in the league. Didn't look like the same player when he took the court this year. Guessing he didn't gel with Grant.

Maybe people will want to come to GW now that the abusive prick ml has been fired
gw future3/12/2018 9:57:35 AM
No people still won’t come to GW until the Nero and his minions vanish from this board. You all have done enough damage for a lifetime. Go wreck somebody else’s program.
gw future3/12/2018 1:17:49 PM
I didn't mean to suggest that ML had nothing to do with wrecking the program.
gw future3/12/2018 2:38:27 PM
Thats not me.

FYI, blocking GW Future and Nero Stole My Boyfriend makes this board much more tolerable.
brian paul3/12/2018 5:33:25 PM
I have blocked Future, but, he seems to come through once in a great while. Maybe, he's got some other IP access. Anyway, blocking him has been a pleasure.
the real dude3/12/2018 6:00:02 PM
Blocking The Dude, Brian Paul, Rich Maier, RUserious, Chet, Dominic and a few other names The Dude uses has worked wonders for me. It now takes very little time to see what legit posters have to say each day - although many have been long gone or prefer not to post anything.
gw future3/12/2018 6:52:03 PM
Squid you lie like a rug. Why would you randomly post about blocking me here unless you could read what I wrote? Follow hard my friend. Follow hard.
newgwfan3/12/2018 6:57:19 PM
I blocked the Nero name too. Also GW Future. So much better.
gw future3/12/2018 7:04:09 PM
Because this is a different IP address dummy.

Maybe another A10 coach will match my record for transfers out of a program.
gw05093/13/2018 1:49:42 PM
Staying on topic...
bigfan3/13/2018 3:29:47 PM
Either transfers out is not the best measure of a coach or there is a lot of hypocrisy.
Didn't Mojo set the one-year record for transfers out/leaving while eligible last year?
bigfan3/13/2018 3:36:08 PM
I'm too brain-dead to realize that the transfers were because of ml not Mojo. Now let me get back to my main job here which is encouraging inside information about Nero and his Uber driving.

Hicks was just 1-5 shooting against us in the tournament, but he was very active getting to the hoop and probably would have finished in double figures had he not got hurt in the game (a blow to Fordham's already thin roster). He's from Pasadena, so he may head back to California and play at some Big West school.
rkelley3/13/2018 11:50:12 PM
Grady is staying, I'd be very surprised if he leaves.
Firstly, he is a huge Curry fan and chose Davidson largely dor that reason.
Secondly, he had an excellent season, and Davidson is a good program that made the tourney. They're losing Aldridge but they're still keeping JAG.
Thirdly McKillop is an excellent coach and his players always stick with him. Most underrated coach in the nation IMO. His team moves the ball like Duke's best teams, they never turn the ball over, they never foul and they make a higher rate of free throws and shots than just about any other program in the nation year after year. All that with a tiny program, a tiny budget, in a mid-major conference. Multiple conference POYs, multiple tourney appearances yet rarely gets a recruit that's even ranked much less a three or four-star guy. If that's not the market of an excellent coach, I don't know what is.
Fourthly, it's hard to get a better education than Davidson. It's right there with Duke and the Ivies.
On Xeyrius Williams--that's expected. He's a super talented player and I would've expected a breakout year if not for the coaching change.
I get the feeling Toro is going to transfer--given his inconsistent PT and obvious talent.
Could also see Luwane Pipkins bolting given how great his season was. Lot a suitors for a guard who can take the point and score as efficiently as he can.
Given SLU's disaster of a season, I could see Welmer leaving. He's sort of in a Patrick Steeves situation. He's lost two years to injury but when he played he was excellent and he's a big who can shoot from deep. Gotta expect a lot of teams would be interested, could even see a team like Butler taking a flyer.
rkelley3/13/2018 11:53:50 PM
Honestly, I can't imagine why Chartouny wouldn't transfer. He's at a program that just can't keep any talent, he had the best steal rate in the nation this year and has been all over leaderboards throughout the past 3 years. Fordham has nothing going for them and he is a great player. No idea why he wouldn't go to a competitive team. Point guards who can move the ball and defend like he can are hard to come by. Sure, his shot was off this year, but for the most part, he has proven an average or better point producer. The passing and defense are outstanding however.
gw05093/15/2018 1:40:30 PM
VCU G Tyler Maye (FR) is leaving the program.
brian paul3/15/2018 1:44:42 PM
Chartouny is the best player on a crap team. He must like NYC or Fordham, as he is a junior, right? Why leave for one year?
rkelley3/15/2018 6:06:18 PM
Mitola, Creek, Savage all transferred with one year remaining. Mitola has 1K points at an Ivy and he transferred. Fordham has lost some promising players over the years, perhaps he expected better this year. Or maybe he just wants to play for a competitive team, and there’s always point guards in demand.
brian paul3/15/2018 6:27:12 PM
I think Mitola and Creek had other issues, Mr. Kelley.
Mitola, I think had graduated in 3 years, and the Ivies would not allow a graduated player to be eligible.
Creek was recruited over, because of his extensive history of injuries, and was told he was 'not in the team's plans,' for the coming season.
Savage had issues with Mr. Lonergan.
So, it happens. But, it's been an exceptional case until recently. (Of course, my memory may have collapsed, too. But, if so, I will hear about it.)

BP, 3 for 3.
The Ivy League should change that rule, for their sake. For our sake its worked out pretty well.
gw05093/16/2018 5:17:25 PM
Fordham G Tre Evans (SO) is leaving the program
