I wish him well. Really good player that just isn't going to get enough minutes this season on this roster. Good kid, hard worker, good shooter. If he gets the right landing spot he may have a chance to crack a two-way contract and work his way into the bottom end of an NBA roster, and that's nothing to sneeze at.

Roll player at best. 4 points a game won’t be missed

I was going, how can you transfer halfway through your senior year and then remembered covid. Wow, certainly changes things. Who could have foreseen this?

Can’t say I blame him. This is his last hurrah in college basketball. It’s all about PT if you have any hopes of playing professionally. And not suggesting Manning is NBA material, but playing oversees or in developmental league. Really thought he had all the intangibles to be our 5th starter or at least our 6th man this year. Wishing Manning all the best of success. Thanks for being a Tiger.

I usually scoff at blaming compliance every time someone moves on, but I can't see a rotational piece on a nationally competitive team leaving during conference play for any other reason.

You mean, you can’t see beyond playing time? He had a chance to shine, got passed up, now wants that chance elsewhere. Or, as you say... just another brother on weed (you dumbass).

Damn. He was starting to come around. He should have known it would take a little time but he was starting to get more PT. This team was much stronger with him and I think with a few more games under his belt his production and confidence would go up.
