The flood of college basketball players into the transfer portal isn’t sitting well with ESPN analyst Dick Vitale.
Here are a few of his tweets over the weekend.
Dick’s objections haven’t done much to stop the avalanche.
▪ Kentucky has picked up transfers Oscar Tshiebwe from West Virginia and Kellan Grady from Davidson. John Calipari is reportedly in the mix for Minnesota guard Marcus Carr, among others.
▪ Over the weekend, Louisville added Florida shooting guard Noah Locke. He joins Miami transfer Matt Cross and Marshall transfer Jarrod West.
▪ On Sunday, Alabama received a commitment from Furman forward Noah Gurley. He averaged 15.4 points and 5.8 rebounds last season. He joins Texas Tech guard Nimari Burnett, who is transferring to Tuscaloosa.
▪ Arkansas has added transfers Chris Lykes from Miami, Au’Diese Toney from Pittsburgh and Stanley Umude from South Dakota. Umude averaged 21.6 points and 7.0 rebounds a game last year.
