PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — What an off-season its been for sophomores on the transfer market.
Some of the top transfers from across the country since the 2016-17 season have been second-year players, and still provide a ton of upside to their new programs in the future.
The likes of Carlton Bragg (Arizona State Sun Devils), C.J. Bryce (NC State Wolfpack), Marcus Evans (VCU Rams), and the Lawson brothers have all found their new homes, along with a slew of other talented players.
As the off-season moves along, players are still making decisions on their future, and while some may view it as ‘late’, players are still transferring from their current program.
EDINBURG, Tex. — As the off-season continues to roll along, more and more big names seem to be hitting the transfer market in the later months.
Just a couple weeks ago, sophomore guard C.J. Bryce announced he was transferring from the UNC Wilmington Seahawks, and he committed to Kevin Keatts and the NC State Wolfpack a short time later.
Now, on Friday afternoon, the transfer market picked up some more depth by way of a player who has flown under the radar for two years in the WAC.
For fans outside of the WAC, and the state of Texas, paying attention to the UT-Rio Grande Valley Vaqueros isn’t high on their priority list. However, over the past two years, those fans have missed the emergence of a talented scoring guard who is now looking for his new home.
While the Notre Dame Fighting Irish only signed one recruit to their class of 2017, the Irish got the ball rolling early as they secured a commitment from class of 2018 four-star point guard, Prentiss Hubb.
The on-court success of the Irish seems to be transpiring on the recruiting trail, as Notre Dame has been starting to secure some blue chip recruits. Demetrius Jackson led the way, followed by soon-to-be sophomore T.J. Gibbs, incoming freshman D.J. Harvey and now Hubb.
Hubb’s commitment marks the second straight recruit Head Coach Mike Brey has landed from the state of D.C in two years. Both Hubb and Harvey come from D.C. where they squared off against each other in high school.
