Were those players only known for their shooting prowess ahead of transferring? I severely doubt it. I believe what the debate is about here is whether strictly shooting % tends to translate. And - at least for Illinois - when we recruit transfers expecting sharpshooters, it doesn't work and they almost never have other qualities to fall back on.
OK then, Feliz was a JUCO transfer who shot well there and shot over 45% for us. Anyway, everyone is different, so trying to extrapolate from prior situations is problematic at best. We have good coaches, hopefully that get the right guy for our situation.
