OSU and Minnesota kicking the tires on Pitt PG Marcus Carr, who was the one player Stallings brought in worth a damn.  Don't see any reason for a waiver, so he wouldn't be eligible until 2019-20.

UW picked up a commit from 2018 PG Tai Strickland today. I think he's got a shot to play this coming year, if not start. We'll see.

Is he definitely gone from Pitt?  Heard a few of the kids who requested releases/transfers decided to stick around when Capel was announced.

I heard only 2 withdrew their requests, and he wasn't one of thrm.  That was yesterday, and Capel didn't meat with the team til today, with individual meetings starting tomorrow.  So I imagine a couple more will stay.

Justin Jackson from Maryland declares, and he will have an agent.

There have been a handful of those that are going to test the waters without an agent as well. Two for Nebraska and Edwards for Purdue, but I don't know how meaningful that news is.

For Michigan, if Mo were to stay, they would have to do something about a scholarship next year. I suppose one of the current five signees could gray-shirt or do prep school for a year. A couple are raw and young for their grade. There is a distant possibility of transfer out, but that is unlikely. Your most likely suspects would be Brooks, Watson, Davis, and they are all getting spot minutes and really just starting to the development curve with Beilein.

Nick Ward now too. No agent though. Don’t know what kind of market there is for a 6’8 banger with range from 10 ft in. He’s aN NBA defensive matchup liability and will have trouble scoring. Rumors of a rift with the cos hung staff might be the main driver here. I don’t see anything better than being an undrwfted free agent though.

The way it is now, declaring without an agent isn't even a story.  I'm surprised every even borderline player doesn't do it.

I am very skeptical of some of these going the route with an agent. They do understand that there are only two rounds right? And first round is the only guaranteed money? And that the modern draft will likely have an influx of international guys taking up spots too?

Purdue adds Dartmouth transfer Evan Boudreaux, who averaged 17.5 ppg and 9.5 rpg last year.  Really nice, and much needed pickup with 4 senior starters graduating.

Start? That would be quite ambitious.

No question, but it's possible. Gard has shown that he'll put in a youngster over an upperclassman if the kid can play.

That led me to look up Rod Strickland, and while I remember him being a good player, he had a run from about 94-98 that was far better than I would have guessed he had.  Averaged a double-double to go along with 5.3 rpg in '98 with the Wizards.

He was a bit of a head case for DePaul and I think for some NBA teams before he got his shit together.

Hopefully the kid is of clear mind. It would make sense that he is, given how UW is so selective on character.

Tony Carr to decide in 'next week or so' about the NBA draft.  My guess is he declares but doesn't hire an agent.

Purdue got a really nice grad transfer in Evan Boudreaux out of Dartmouth. I was hoping he'd look at W, but nope. Great pickup for PU.

Yeah it's usually a 100% non-story. However this one seemed different given the statement he posted online. It read as if he has already crossed an emotional barrier about leaving. Most players' statements sound equivocal or "just checking because obviously but I'm not leaning that way" when they announce w/o an agent.

I think most MSU fans actually thought the chances of him returning were lower than they should be anyway.  He's not a kid who seems to enjoy coaching, and his limitations aren't going to change.  He's a traditional big, who isn't that big, trying to get into a league that has very few players that still play that way, and those that do, are much taller than he is.  I don't think he's going to like what the scouts say, but I'm not sure they'll like him any more in two years.  If he's going to Europe anyway, maybe he'd rather just go now.
