I know it's only March 14th and the NCAA tournament hasn't even started yet, but some colleges had their seasons come to an end last week, so transfer(or is it free agency!!) season is underway. Verbal Commits already has it's 2017 list out, the list includes 6 players who announced they are transferring within the last 24 hours. An interesting name on the list is Georgetown's Trey Mourning, he's the son of NBA and Georgetown great Alonzo Mourning. Will Alonzo have any hard feelings towards Georgetown over this? There is also Nebraska forward Nick Fuller who announced he's leaving the program, he'll graduate in May and will be eligible to play next year.

More immediately eligible Ivy League graduate students, please.

The Duquesne roster will get a shake up.

thomas3/14/2017 10:53:28 AM

Ziik,  I'm glad you brought that up because it hasn't been mentioned here yet. For those of you who don't know, Duquesne fired it's coach yesterday. So there are now 2 job openings in the A10

Maine Colonial,  there's actually another Ivy League grad transfer available again this year, he's Henry Caruso from Princeton. He's probably visited GW already and has had conversations with Steeves and Mitola about GW's grad programs!! HA!  

thinker3/14/2017 10:58:40 AM

Don't forget that transfers often go to schools that recruited them previously or to coaches that they had a prior relationship or connection with.

I believe that Strickland and Sutton had some type of relationships with Armwood and Creek. ML had a long relationship with Cavanaugh and he had recruited Sina who played HS ball with Mitola and I recall ML had some relationship with Sina's dad - his coach.

I don't know about Steeves.

Another transfer name is Khris Lane from LongwoodWe recruited him out of HS.  Averaged 17 & 7 as a 6'6" PF.

On Duquesne, they also announced a major refurb of their arena and there are rumors of a $1m package for the new hire.  Apparently the new AD finally understands.

maine colonial3/14/2017 12:47:33 PM

Princeton would work. Does Caruso still have eligibility left if he played 8 games this season? He's no longer listed on the Princeton team roster even though he's in the team photo. LINK  His teammate Hans Brase is graduating in the spring and he definitely has eligibility left. LINK  LINK

GW recruited Rene Castro of Duquesne (and before that Butler), I believe.  However, I'm not sure he's someone we want at this juncture.

ziik3/14/2017 6:32:29 PM

Castro will spend more time sitting out than playing, the way he has turned out. Not an ML winner

thomas3/14/2017 7:05:08 PM

Another local player just appeared on the transfer list, Pittsburgh power forward Corey Manigault from Paul VI announced he's transferring. He was recruited by BCS schools in high school, but barely played last year at Pittsburgh.

thomas3/14/2017 7:12:12 PM

I forgot to add that Manigault was a freshman(class of 2016) this year and would have 3 years of eligibility left.

thinker3/14/2017 7:31:30 PM

You can't transfer within the A-10 - Remember the Trey Davis Rule

mike k3/14/2017 7:38:06 PM

I thought if you transfer within the same conference you had to sit 2 years, which effectively rules it out. 

bigfan3/14/2017 7:58:23 PM

Yeah,we screwed the pooch on that one.

Like Paul VI recruit in general. Don't know about this one in specific or if we need a PF. Depends on transfers, or how desirable he is.

Marial Shayok from UVA is leaving.  Sit one year, play one year schedule.  Averaged 9ppg as a junior.  Canadian.

2twotoed3/22/2017 5:07:38 PM

UVA big Reuter is leaving also. He would really help GW.

ziik3/22/2017 5:32:43 PM

GW should get every non-Gonzaga Canadian. The Canadiens, too.

thomas3/22/2017 5:58:01 PM

Marial Shayok leaving Virginia is surprising to me because he would've been one of their best players next year. The only concern I'd have is, why is a really talented and productive player transferring out? What's the issue? If Mojo has any sort of ties with Shayok, he should definitely try to bring him to GW because of his talent level.

notta hater3/22/2017 6:08:54 PM

Blair Academy - not too shabby ...

the dude3/22/2017 7:53:54 PM

Agreed Thomas, very talented player.  

Fact is, Canada for some reason (anyone know why?) has in the last few years become a major factory of good Hoops players.  Good news for GW. We don't need every Canadian/Int'l, we need a few, which would be a lot better than more American HS guys that chose GW over low majors.

bigfan3/22/2017 11:05:54 PM

Well Mojo gets a pass on Longpire (sp?) because of the weird circumstances of his visit.

Who knows whether we would have signed him or how he will pan out, but seemed sought after,at least at our level.

But sure hope Mojo can compete for top Canadian players.

ziik3/23/2017 12:12:30 PM

Chase Jeter, Duke

dmvpiranha3/23/2017 6:51:42 PM

Apparently we're one of several programs who have reached out to former UVA player Jarred Reuter. Would be a nice get for us.

yawle3/23/2017 7:55:00 PM

what about Darius Thompson.  that would be a perfect fit

bm3/24/2017 9:45:24 AM

Ouch.  Sengfelder leaving Fordham.

gw05093/24/2017 10:23:16 AM

I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but with 3 open scholarships now, I really hope we can nab some quality transfers.

front row center3/24/2017 10:37:44 AM

It's time now to see what kind of recruiter MoJo is. Losing a lot of talent for next year so far. Hopefully the talented underclassmen don't decide to leave.  We could use a nice grad student scorer to ease the young guys in.

thomas3/24/2017 10:50:46 AM

Front Row Center and GW0509, I agree with you guys!! Every hour(it seems) we are seeing quality players announcing that they are transferring, it's time for Mojo to go to work. Someone mentioned that GW is one of the schools interested in Virginia's Jarred Reuter. Jarred Reuter is listed at 6-7 and 243 pounds, sounds like slightly undersized power forward and I saw he went to Brewster Academy, which is a big-time basketball factory school. Anyone familiar with his game??

Another local guy who announced that he was transferring who I overlooked is Farleigh Dickinson guard Stephan Jiggetts who attended McNamara, he has graduated and can play next year. He was Farleigh Dickinson's 2nd leading scorer last year averaging around 11 or 12PPG.

maine colonial3/24/2017 1:02:52 PM

So far about 202 guys are on the transfer list meaning another 600 will be adding their names to the list at some point. At least 500 of the 800 players will be immediately eligible so MoJo has a good chance of bringing in some quality transfers.

b loud3/24/2017 1:09:23 PM

6'10" Kerem Kanter (brother of Enas), grad transfer Green Bay, immediately eligble.   11.3 ppg and 6.3 rpg in only 19 minutes.

pj3/24/2017 1:11:07 PM

Plenty of chances to improve upon departing ML mistakes

long suffering fan3/24/2017 1:39:25 PM

You mean the same departing mistakes that brought GW 95 wins over the last 4 seasons?

mg143/24/2017 2:36:33 PM

Duquesne freshman Mike Lewis has asked for his release to transfer, per his twitter page. Averaged 14.1 PPG. Should have high-major suitors.

mg143/24/2017 4:41:00 PM

Rutgers redshirt junior guard Nigel Johnson will be a grad transfer. Started career at K-State.

mike k3/24/2017 4:44:00 PM

NIGEL!  Oh boy, there is one guy we won't go after.

gw05093/24/2017 4:51:24 PM

When you transfer three times in college, maybe the issue isn't "them"

boom3/24/2017 5:20:55 PM

Jaren Sina left four teams 

1

thomas3/24/2017 5:46:59 PM

What a journey it's been for Nigel since his senior of high school in 2012!!! He signed with Kansas State because it was a BCS school, he left for Rutgers because he wanted more playing time and stats, what's he looking for now?? If he transfers to a BCS school, he's going to have the same role he had at Kansas State which is scoring off the bench in limited minutes. Maybe he goes to Iona where he can chuck up a lot of shots and be a favorite to win the MAAC. Iona likes bringing in BCS players like Nigel.
