2021 Transfers
« on: April 18, 2021, 07:58:43 pm »
Between the extra year of eligibility due to COVID (first and foremost), the recent success of D3 to D1 transfers (now TWO NBA players), and the waiver of the redshirt year for transfers, I imagine we will see far from transfers both from D3 to higher levels as well as within D3 this year.  I figured I'd consolidate all information on transfers as well as guys seeking to transfer (some of which has already been shared on various boards here) into one thread.  What I've seen so far:

Division 3 to Division 1:

Jack Nolan: Wash U to TBD
Collen Gurley: Mount Young to Youngstown State
Fru Che: Amherst to TBD
D'KQuan Davis: Arcadia to TBD (originally Texas State but withdrew his commitment)

Division 3 to Division 3:

Griffin Kornaker: Middlebury to Case Western
Dan Masino: Hobart to Rochester

UWSPs Philip Flory entered the transfer portal and is looking for a D1 opportunity.  He started his career as a walk on at Seton Hall, earned minutes and transferred on scholarship to Albany.  Foot injuries derailed his career at Albany and walked away from basketball for a year or so.  He got healthy and played at UWSP during this shortened season.

If I remember correctly as well, I think Flory was the youngest person to ever receive a scholarship offer from Marquette, getting one his freshman season.  Foot injuries also derailed his recruitment at that point and Im assuming Marquette stopped their interest, hence him walking on to prove himself.

It's gonna be really fun to see how all these D3 guys do in D1 next year.  I really hope Austin Hutcherson can get healthy, he was really being talked up at Illinois before he was sidelined by injury.  The only downside (from a D3 fan perspective) is that if they keep doing well, more and more D1 coaches might try to poach the best D3 guys ... which would probably be a smart move for the coaches!

This was probably talked about elsewhere but Will Carius did very well for Division I Western Illinois this season.  14 points and 5 rebounds in 31 minutes per game on average.

That IWU at Yeshiva game in NYC on 12/28 is going to be pretty cool.  Both teams are ridiculously loaded.

Luke Feely is headed to UMHB after two years at Black Hills State (D2). Was a two-star recruit out of high school, and should improve the Crusaders' depth in the post.
