    Brian Snow, 247 Sports: Louisville gets grad transfer Carlik Jones.

    As a redshirt junior at Radford, Jones averaged 20.0 points, 5.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds per contest while shooting 49 percent from the floor and 41 percent from beyond the three-point arc.

    Carlik Jones fills a big need on the perimeter for Louisville. Was one of the best guard prospects available this transfer cycle. Jones and David Johnson, a potential first rounder next year, should make an impressive ACC backcourt.

    Many rumors (mostly from Syracuse sources) about Patrick Tapé joining him

    I am so glad Tape’ has reconsidered and is joining the good guys, but I was curious why Syracuse has been pursuing transfers so vigorously. I must have missed it, but they have had 3 players (guards, bench players) enter the transfer portal in the last few weeks, and there is a 4th player who apparently is considering transferring. This is on top of Hughes declaring for the draft. So lots of roster turnover for the Orange.

    Not sure if this got posted yet, but Luther Muhammad is leaving Ohio State. That's now two promising underclassmen guards the Buckeyes will lose to transfer, along with their star Kaleb Wesson to the draft (I believe he's "all in" but not 100% on that). Getting grad transfer Seth Towns may help alleviate the backcourt concerns (and could've been an impetus behind Muhammad's decision), but the Buckeyes may not be the Top 10-15 team they were projected to be with this level of attrition.

    Purdue’s Matt Haarms has entered the transfer portal. He’s a 7-3 center who has played real minutes for a great Big Ten program. He’ll be 23 years old when next season begins — and eligible immediately. So he’ll have plenty of suitors.

    I believe I recall him playing in a twinbill in a game before a Duke game, and he is truly immense.

    Speaking of transfers, I saw a crawl yesterday (maybe this has been mentioned) in which IF the NCAA approves of one time transfers which allow a kid to play immediately, it probably won't take effect until the 2021-22 season. Still TBD.

    Perhaps he's bespoken for.

    Wow. Haarms is a very good, high-major big. I imagine this choice was driven by the emergence of Trevion Williams for Purdue last year and the fact that him and Haarms don’t really fit on the floor well together.

    I tell you what, Tapé could be very lucky he made his mind up last night, otherwise it wouldn’t have surprised me at all to see K go after Haarms hard.

    I've mentioned that there had to be some attrition coming from Michigan at some point or another, and it looks like the shoe finally dropped today, with David DeJulius entering the transfer portal.

    This is a sad one for me. On the one hand I understand it, as DeJulius was likely looking at another season as a 6th man before likely assuming the starting PG mantle as a senior. But he showed a lot of flashes that he could be a high-caliber PG against quality competition, he was a local kid, and I loved the energy he played with. I was really hoping Wolverine fans would get to see how he developed in a Michigan uniform.

    That said, this news helps make sense of Michigan's continued pursuit of PG Bryce Aiken, one of the top grad-transfers on the market. While Eli Brooks is a natural point guard and will be a senior this year, his offensive abilities are limited, and he showed he's probably more comfortable off the ball offensively and being a spot-up shooter and defensive specialist. Aiken could come in immediately and initiate the offense. Michigan also brings in Top 100 PG recruit Zeb Jackson in the 2020 class, so this could be foreshadowing that the program is high on his potential relative to DeJulius.

    In somewhat related news, while Isaiah Livers declared for the draft last week, in a couple recent interviews he has explicitly stated that unless he gets a promise that he has a guaranteed contract, he'll be coming back for his senior year. So that sounds like a guy with more of a toe in the draft waters, rather than full on testing it. Without DeJulius as things stand Michigan will be thin at PG, but could start a lineup with two seniors (Brooks and Livers), a returning sophomore with a potential NBA future (Franz Wagner), and two top recruits (a combination of Isaiah Todd, Hunter Dickinson, and Josh Christopher)... and there would still be lots of experience coming off the bench, at minimum in the front court (RS Senior Austin Davis and junior Brandon Johns). Still a lot of things to be optimistic about in Ann Arbor.

    When Haarms is on the bench, we will get all the calls from the refs!

    After all, no Haarms — no foul.

    Louisville is apparently making a big push. Haarms will be an impact transfer. He's a bigger deal than any of these Ivy league kids, IMO.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I also read that Kentucky was making a big push. If Montgomery declares, along with Richards, they will lose a lot in the frontcourt.

    Agreed 100%. I've always liked what Haarms brings watching him play in the B1G. In an alternate universe where he makes the decision to transfer earlier, I could imagine K reaching out to both him and Tape... although I imagine Haarms wants to play starter's minutes, whereas Tape is more likely to accept a complimentary role.

    Try not to get triggered again, but maybe picture it... literally?

    "Looking good, Matt!"
    "Feeling good, Patrick!"

    Will he then be in Haarms way?
