    Raoul is reporting that DiJonai Carrington of Stanford has entered the transfer portal. She's eligible immediately as a graduate-transfer.

    Shakira Austin was someone Aston recruited and offered; think she might have even visited Texas unofficially before committing to Maryland.

    Damn, damn, damn. As you’ve rightly pointed out we don’t have a chance with the transfer market because of the unknowns. She’s a very good player with potential to be great. Yes, Coach Aston recruited her.

    The good news, if any, is that these transfers won't be allowed to make campus visits any time soon; so, that helps us out in our current situation.. But, other head coaches will get ahead of the game by making contact with prospective transfers, and begin building relationships (if they don't already have them from the past).

    Yeah, she obviously already has a relationship with Coach Aston and Coach George but I also think she was recruited by Coach Nooner while he was at Maryland before he took a job with the NBA.

    Haven't focused on our scholarship numbers over the last few weeks.

    What I do know is that 2 senior graduate-transfers would help balance our roster due to the departed 2017 signing class.

    Don't think we have a lot of open 'ships for underclassmen as we have one or two verbal commitments already for 2021 and 2022, right?

    Raoul reported Texas has 3 open roster spots and we have 2 more scholarship available to give as we will only have 12 players next season and sophie taylor will be gone so that will leave a scholarship open. That is assuming everyone on the current roster is on scholarship.

    Maybe it means something, maybe it means nothing. I don't pay a lot of regular attention to who follows whom on twitter/instagram, and vice verse. But, i haven't seen Coach A follow any of the reported transfers, or them follow her. It's early, but lack of that type of activity typically means no interest; haven't bothered to check the assistant coaches or other staff.

    The same reason Katie Benzan and Karisma Ortiz have.

    Interesting, but not surprising. She sat out this year because of injury right? Which means unless they pass the immediate transfer rule later on this summer she’ll have sat out for 2 years.

    Yeah, I recall how she verbally committed to Kansas along with a couple of her Duncanville teammates after their official visit to Lawrence; but, then she decommitted. Added Tennessee and South Carolina to her list; visited Tennessee officially, and then committed and signed with the Lady Vols. Didn't seem to give the in-state programs a look, except maybe Texas A&M.

    Notice that her post said something about "Due to my actions..."

    Well if it’s a discipline issue or grades I guess we can assume she will going north up the road about 100 miles. Lol

    Lady Vols guards Jazmine Massengill and Zaay Green enter NCAA transfer portal

    “I’m very grateful for the memories, but due to my actions and decisions and the coaches, it has been best for me to part my ways from the University of Tennessee and figure out what is best for Zaay Green,” Green said.

    Green is scheduled to have a misdemeanor citation booking in May on a charge for simple possession/casual exchange of a controlled substance.

    This transfer thing is getting out of hand. I get some may be for legit reasons and I don't fault them but I really am wondering what's going on at these schools to the point where so many players are transferring. Besides that hopefully we go for her. Probably not going to get her but never hurts to try.

    This will be her second transfer, as she played her freshman season at Maryland.

    Since we have a grad transfer coming in at PG from Harvard, I wouldn't think Slocum would be a target for us (unless she and/or Katie could also play SG). Figuring we have depth at issues at other positions that need to be addressed. Still, Slocum provides a lot of skill, especially perimeter shooting which we desperately need; but, if she believes her future as a pro is at PG, she will end up somewhere where she is the guaranteed starter for her final season.

    Agreed. I don't know how many scholarships we have to give out if any but I do think we need to use them on a versatile post player who can face up and play back to the basket and we need a foward

    We have 3 open 'ships for this season. But, if we use them other than on grad-transfer seniors with one year of eligibility remaining, it trickles down and lessens the available 'ships for the classes of '21 and '22.

    Well now that Karen is out it's time to get a big name coach and reset this program and get our recruiting back.

    I find the wording of Rickea Jackson's mother very interesting, "As of today she's still a Dawg."

    So she might not be a Dawg tomorrow.

    I just take it to mean that they will wait until MSU names the new head coach before taking any action
