    Default Roydell Brown to transfer

    Riddell Brown will be transferring out. Can't say that I'm too surprised, we needed an extra scholarship spot. He was more than likely asked to redshirt this upcoming year so he decided to transfer

    So he's given his release. That means he red shirts next season or goes juco. Doesn't sound like a good option for him either way. Maybe he wasn't happy. Maybe they were not seeing a big upside for him.

    We did need someone to leave in order to bring someone else in. That is even with Plaisance leaving. One of the transfers paid their own way in the fall semester. Brown would have likely not played here next year as plan was to redshirt him due to the transfers coming in and four seniors on next year's squad. Note, I have no idea if he was asked to leave or this was totally his preference. Personally, I would not be surprised if his scholarship goes to another transfer. 12 scholarship players is plenty to go to battle with next season. Note if it is a transfer that is brought in, we may not hear about it for awhile. We did not hear about one of the transfers last year until August. That being said, the spring signing period began today. It lasts for a month.

    Here is a list of the 12 scholarship players slated for next season. First the 8 guys who played this past year; Miller, Bartley, Evans, Davis, Hardy, Stove, Washington, Stalcup. Now the three transfers; Gant, Stroman, and Marquetti. Finally, our fall period signee-Russell. 8+3+1 =12. You are allowed 13 on scholarship. That proves Brown leaving makes room for one potential spring signee to be brought in.

    So if we needed somebody to leave how can we give his scholarship to another transfer

    I don't why he is leaving. If I had to guess it would be two reasons. One he may not have wanted to redshirt as was the plan of the staff. Tied to that was probably the desire to play more minutes than he would have here once his redshirt was over. That is the reason just about everyone leaves where they are. I have no idea where he will end up but I would not be surprised if it is UNO. His game fits their style somewhat and he is from New Orleans. As Coach said in his statement, I am sure we all wish him well going forward.

    I am not sure I understand your question. Transfers are generally on scholarship. We were lucky one of the transfers this year wanted to come here badly enough he paid his own way for one semester. That is a very unusual situation. We have 12 scholarship players now as outlined in another post. The 13th can go to a HS guy, a JUCO guy, or a transfer.

    Annual nationwide college basketball musical chairs. Player thinks he's better off somewhere else, go for it. Sometimes it works in their favor, most times it doesn't.

    I always felt that the redshirt after playing a year plan was odd but it was a necessity that he played this past year with how the roster was set up. Mike, do you think the redshirt is still a possibility for Hardy next year?

    You said we needed someone else besides plaisance to leave bc a transfer paid his own way...so we needed another person to leave or redshirt...then you said you wouldn't be surprised if Browns scholarship went to another transfer...well then we still need someone to redshirt or pay their own way

    Despite having a poor tournament, I think it is working out well for Frank Bartley. He was our leading scorer and Newcomer of the year in Louisiana this year. Of course he did not leave BYU due to not being happy there as he was a starter there and he loved that part of Utah as well as his coaches and teammates. He simply wanted to play closer to home and have a larger offensive role.

    No we don't need anyone else to leave to bring someone in. The transfer who paid his own way did so only in the fall semester. He did not have to once Plaisance left and will not have to do so going forward. See my post outlining the 12 guys planned for scholarship. Brown would have made the allowed 13. His departure allows another player to be brought in to get us back to 13. Let me clarify that I don't know a transfer will be how this scholarship is used. It simply would not surprise me based upon having four seniors and recent moves. I don't have any idea who they are recruiting for the spring or the early period in November. I have been told that November is the current focus due to the four seniors. Of course that plan may be changing now that Brown is moving on.

    Yes, I think that is a possibility. Of course injuries can change plans.
