Does anyone have any idea when the NCAA is going to decide about the transfer rule? Seems to me this should have been decided long before now. Is there a reason they would postpone a decision because of the pandemic? I wouldn't think so, but I have been oblivious before.
Not sure the exact date, but there was to be a meeting in mid(?)April.

Don't know if that will change, but it sounds like it is set to pass for the next academic year.

I believe it is on the agenda for an April meeting of the Div. 1 Council. Not sure of the date.

Doesn’t seem Iowa would be the the place for him if he wants a running team. Do like the thought of Curbelo, Miller and DJ as the guards in 2021-2.
Good article (especially for Prince), thanks.

Beyond having recruited him hard in round 1, we have a lot more going for us now: evidence and momentum. It's clear that our pace is quite appealing. Great players want to play with great players. Forget the second banana: 2 great PGs are better than 1 (Confucius). Carton doesn't necessarily have to have the ball all the time, his skills translate. Have come around.
Wait, what? Every year Iowa is one of the fastest pace teams in the B1G. Due to our defensive change, our pace dropped to 11th in the B1G...one spot above OSU.

If Carton wants to get out and run, Iowa is clearly the place to go.

FWIW Iowa led the B10 in scoring this year and was 5th in the country in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency.

Point taken. Mebbe it's a simple as he can't stomach Fran. He wouldn't be the first.
 
I’m hearing at least one more transferring, in on another really good hs senior and 1-2 big time transfers! Should no more by end of March..
 
Since we have an open scholarship now:

I remember there being talk of a few guys that were considering reclassifying. I remember reading Weston is staying in the 2021 class, any news on the others?
 
[ rampant speculation ] Gotta be Hamlin. Unless it isn't, lol.
Pure speculation...gotta admit though it is helping pass the time with all the sudden possiblilities in our recruiting world. Who knew that in a time with no contact, we would have some of our best conversations about the future of ILLINI basketball?
