    I'm glad to see this. All quality players are welcome, but I am confused. On the football board transfers are good, but on the basketball board transfers are downplayed and not considered real recruits.

    The difference is filling an 85 player roster vs. a 13 player roster. Xfers are supplementing the football roster..they're sustaining the bball roster.

    a lot of factors go into whether or not a transfer is a good strategy.

    -grad transfers are great in transition years... jared southers and tyler davis will help us tremendously this year at positions of need and then they'll be gone and we get the scholly to recruit the type of athlete we want.
    -transfers at positions of need are always great. antonneous clayton is huge because of our need for DL players.
    -and lastly, getting a transfer that still has 4, or even 3, years to play is great because you get to coach them the way you want to. they're not that much different from HS recruits.

    The transfer portal is revolutionary and we will probably be a good landing space for a lot of recruits from the area that go elsewhere to play and then want to come back home.

    The problem with bball is Pastner talking about wanting to get old. That means guys that have experience in the system and with each other. Short-term transfers don't get you either of those things.

    I understand CGC's reputation and history of developing NFL CB's, but it is beginning to look like we went from a "RB-heavy roster" to a "CB-heavy roster".

    Am I wrong? Asking for a friend.

    I said a while back after the the use of the transfer portal exploded that teams like GT would benefit while the power houses wouldn’t. I had no idea at that time that Collins was also all over it. I gotta think no other team has benefitted more than us. As stated above, GT has brought in positions of need with quality players who will help for a season during the transition then be gone to open those spots up and we brought in 3 year types who can help long term. Now granted, if Fields or Eason leads their new teams to the promised land then good for them, but for GT this portal has been a dream come true. I’m sure the big boys will get the NCAA to change it since it makes it too easy for them to lose their backups.

    On the football forum the transfers are 4 star fringe 5 star players. On the basketball forum Josh Pastner is selling you a Kia and telling you in 7 years it’ll look like a Porsche.

    Given the option of the two, DBs and LBs are integral in special teams. So not a bad thing to have spare coverage guys around.

    Not just that. We’re still RB heavy and our defense sucks/ed so why not? If DBs are attracted to Collins that makes our deficiencies on the line less glaring

    Because our best basketball transfer is a player from VMI.

    Our football program is getting players from Florida,Michigan, etc...

    They may try, but it's a tough sell to argue simultaneously that players are student-athletes who do not need to be paid and yet, unlike other students, they shouldn't be able to transfer to another school of their choice without being at the mercy of their current school.

    No, that's not right. S/A's are free to transfer between schools, and they're free to receive a scholarship when they transfer. They just can't play. No part of the "student" half of the equation is affected by the transfer.

    No, that's not right. I was referring to the transfer portal, which I thought was clear when I responded to a post about the transfer portal. One of its chief aims was to alleviate some of the mess concerning restricted schools and freedom of contact. No part of my post was referencing the one-year sit rule.

    There is a school of thought that started with New England that having a solid secondary is more important than a solid DL. Its not intuitively obvious but there is quite a bit of statistical backup for it. I read the article a while back and will link it if I can find it. I'm not sure if it translates to college football but maybe CGC has the idea that it does. We will see.

    We have two or three years to fix it. Grab every good player whenever you can. They will fit somewhere. We need 35 or forty "new" athletes to complete the remaking of the roster.

    I believe Jordan Usher was a 4 star.
