  • The possibility of college players transferring and being immediately eligible at the next program alarms at least two of the five new members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches Board of Directors


    ... were so mad at Kentucky that they made them play Cleveland State

    “It would open a door that should never be opened,” Cleveland State Coach Gary Waters said. Without the requirement of sitting out a year as a transfer, “all of a sudden you have free agency,” Waters said.

    Cleveland State, which plays at Kentucky this coming season, knows all about transfers/free agency. In recent seasons, Waters has seen three players transfer away: Trey Lewis (to Louisville), Anton Grady (to Wichita State) and Bryn Forbes (to Michigan State).

    Waters envisions rival recruiters “at your games seeing if they want your players.”

    South Carolina Coach Frank Martin, who also is a new NABC Board member, saw the growing number of transfers (approaching 1,000 annually nationwide) as a reflection on more than college athletics.

    “We all want instant gratification,” he said. “We want the first job to be CEO. We no longer want our first job to be the guy who makes coffee. We all want instant gratification.”

    Cleveland State coach questioned whether players who transfer because a school does not offer a class or major are truly motivated by academics. In hopes of playing somewhere else, a player will look for a course their school does not offer, he said.

    “It’s become an academic,” Waters said before correcting himself. “It’s become an epidemic.

    “Freudian slip,” he added.

    Mid-year transfers who transfer in 2nd year should consider sitting out 1.5 years to have two seasons to play. Example: SMU's Semi Ojeleye.

    Would be only semi-eligible if he plays in 2018.

    A note to all kids thinking of transferring mid-year: Don't do it. You lose more than you gain by leaving a school in December. Not wise.
