This reminds me of something I read Tim Floyd (UTEP coach) said last week:
- Per Floyd, there have been 581 transfers in college hoops so far (UTEP has 3).
- Per Floyd, last year, there were 79 teams with three transfers and 74 with four (UTEP had 1).
- Per Jim Larrañaga, over the last two years, 344 Division I programs (out of 351) have had at least one player leave.
There are also excerpts from other coaches. They go on to say that these kids will play for multiple AAU teams at a time, sometimes three teams in the same day. The whole culture that basketball players are being raised in seems very nomadic. Expect transfer rates to increase.
