Most of the team entered the draft portal because they don't know who their coach will be and there is a deadline to enter. Let's pump the brakes a little

While LSU would be the beneficiary, the transfer portal is terrible for college sports.

Yeah, you think that until you’re the kid or parent that the recruiter wasn’t honest with or the coach you were recruited by decides he wants to go elsewhere because he can The transfer portal is a solid mechanism.

I disagree. If the coach can leave, why can’t the player? That’s not fair to the kid either. What if he really liked the coach then leaves? New coach comes in and sucks/you don’t get along and your next 3 years suck. In my opinion, coach leaves, the kids should be able to leave.

Would he be the second to transfer to LSU from Arizona? I swear I thought I read about another kid transferring.

So basically this is the foreshadowing of his upcoming announcement on transferring to LSU. The real question is how many of the other 11 in the portal join him.

I'm sure he can fit in somewhere. Kids that can hit will play, end of story...
