2018 - 2nd Semester Transfer Options

Gonna use this space to keep track of some players who are seeing limited minutes, or a decline in their mpg that could be looking for greener pastures.

I think no matter what happens the Jays will be looking to land some size. Mid-year transfers are almost exclusively highly rated prospects from power 5 programs who are not playing. Can be impact guys like Echenique, Luke Fischer, Semi Olejeye...

- Alex Illikainen (Jr) 6-9 Forward from Wisconsin. Has seen his minutes decline from 9 to 8 to only ~5 this season. Seems to have been passed up by Happ (obviously) and Van Fliet. Jays were hot on him in 2015. Similar game as Hegner with a little more size and little less shooting ability.

- Mitch Lightfoot (So) 6-8 Forward from Kansas. Another big the Jays recruited out of high school. Lightfoot played sparingly last season and has seen limited minutes for the Jayhawks despite a small roster. Skilled 3-4 possibly 5 man.

- Wyatt Wilkes (Fr) 6-8 Forward from Florida State.

- Tai Wynyard (So) 6-10 Center from Kentucky. Passed up by another talented group of freshman. Wondering if the New Zealand native could be looking for a change. Huss and Creighton have been looking more and more at international players.

Interesting shout. He was lightly recruited by Mac out of HS. Sounds like he's left the Dartmouth squad for the year to graduate and become a 2-year Post Grad somewhere.

6-8 Forward averaged 17 & 9 in two seasons. Was an All-Ivy performer. 37.5% from 3PT. Could very well be the top option available, but it sounds like he would have to wait all season and join up with a team at the beginning of next season but he'd be eligible right away and for 2 years.

Jays have two rides open for 2018-2019.

Just curious. A post the other day said Manny turned 24 y/o. What is the average age of college players these days with prep school years, re-classifying, multiple transfers (and sitting out a year), etc., etc.? I'd guess about 21 or 22 y/o?

Jays are interested and will reach out to Boudreaux. Look for Illinois, Northwestern, Villanova, Wisconsin, and Purdue to be calling as well.

could be an interesting look. former 4 star center from Michigan flamed out at Oregon, and left Loyola Marymount. Was supposed to be playing D3 this year but looks like he's sitting out. Coach Murphy offered him when he was at Boston College

Looks like a player. Hard to understand how he couldn't find playing time. He is really smooth. After sitting out another year would he have a 11/2 left? Go Jays!
