I'm copying this from the coaching thread because it announces Sydney Goodson will transfer from Arizona State.

So sad. She never really had a chance with all medical procedures.

Interesting that they list her as a sophomore, as she was in the same class as Azura (2014). The only player remaining from that Duke class is Erin Mathias, as Stevens and Calhoun transferred and now Belton has retired.

So two players from Minnesota start out in New Jersey and end up in Montana - seems a little different Smile.

I have to say that I'm surprised because Alexa only has one year of eligibility left and she seemed to bleed orange. I hope she lands in a good place for her. Maybe academics play a role here also.

Well,she can't do SEC, so it will be interesting to see where she ends up. Academics would definitely seem to play a role. She may be considering grad school somewhere.

Why can't she go to an SEC school? The SEC doesn't have extra penalties for transferring within the conference. Did Holly put restrictions on her transfer?

Would love to see her come to UT-Chattanooga she would fit into this school. They could use her. Best of luck where ever she goes.

They don't? My bad. Maybe it's been a matter of courtesy. I suppose if academics are a thing, she could go to Vandy, although going to the basement might be a big drop in more ways than one. I was thinking she might possibly end up at Belmont.

Mariya Moore is transferring from Louisville.

http://www.swishappeal.com/2017/4/21/15227126/mariya-moore-transferring-louisville-ncaaw

There's a rumor that her sister Minyon Moore is weighing her options on whether to stay at Southern Cal.

"Middleton wanted to make it clear that the possibility of reduced playing time did not affect her decision.

“That recruiting class had nothing to do with why I left,” Middleton said. “I feel confident in my abilities. People are going to think that they know everything. People always have their opinions. That had nothing to do with my decision.” "

http://www.knoxnews.com/story/sports/college/university-of-tennessee/womens-basketball/2017/04/21/alexa-middleton-leaving-lady-vols/100758090/

She's Tenn's most experienced PG and best 3-point shooter. While they're undoubtedly more athletic, I don't see a couple of freshmen and a still-unproven soph ahead of her on the depth chart. Inexperience gets exposed pretty quickly in the SEC, not to mention Tenn's OOC schedule.

I could see the sister staying at USC with the Trakh hire and the older joining her. Trakh is a very likable coach, USC should have kept him first time around.

I actually know the Moore family a little (coached Minyon in a couple summer league games when she was in middle school) and I would think a reunion somewhere is very likely -- and I'd bet on USC. But you know Cal would love to bring them home to the East Bay.

Moving from USC to Cal would hurt Minyan. Last I looked, a transfer within the PAC-12 could cost her a year of eligibility in addition to having to sit out a transfer year.

I'm not quite sure what it means Minyon is open to contact. Does that mean she's been fully released? Oh her Twitter page, she still has USC all over the place and she was pictured with the team giving the V symbol with Trakh and also beaming a huge smile.

So is she looking for a better offer? A package deal?

Walz uses a the recruiting method of throw enough at the wall & see what sticks. Looks good initially but this is what happens.

Tennessee will have all those players *MAYBE* as freshmen while Beatrice would be a RS Junior . I doubt she would play behind those players in Holly was interested.

Surprises me, although I can understand it from her point of view.

Butler was the the highest rated player on UConn this season in rebounds per 40 minutes and in rebound percentage. She was also fifth in points per 40 minutes.

If Azurá Stevens, an unproven transfer, starts next season, UConn without Butler will have no bench player over 6-2.

I'm always sad to see kids throw away a tremendous educational opportunity like this.

Smart girl getting a free blue chip Georgetown degree, trades that for an unrealistic dream of pro basketball stardom at UConn, comes crashing back to earth with neither pro basketball prospects nor an elite education at George Mason. What a waste.

Where were her parents during all of this?

George Mason is not a bad school. Maybe not quite up to Georgetown, but not East Jesus Tech either. Still nothing to snirl your nose up at. Their women's basketball team, however *sigh*

Exactly. And some of the recent Duke transfers are in the same boat.

Smart girl getting a free blue chip Georgetown degree, trades that for an unrealistic dream of pro basketball stardom at UConn, comes crashing back to earth with neither pro basketball prospects nor an elite education at George Mason. What a waste.

Where were her parents during all of this?

Butler left Georgetown after the coach she had signed with was forced to quit early in her freshman season due to complaints of unprofessional conduct and inappropriate language from some of the players.

Quote:
"But things happened and I stayed, which turned out to be fine since I felt it necessary to be loyal to my teammates," Butler said. "But the situation didn't get better during the school year, and when I finally got my release [from Georgetown], it was hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life to leave."


A family friend told Shea Ralph that Butler was available and Auriemma studied film on her and asked around and decided he wanted her.

Quote:
"Once I made the decision to transfer, the stars just immediately aligned," Butler said. "UConn called and I can't tell you how thankful I am to have this opportunity to play for Coach Auriemma."


Auriemma likely misjudged how much she would contribute, but she got to play a little bit of a role on an undefeated national championship team (played 12 minutes a game and in all 6 NCAA tournament games). Most elite basketball players choose their school based on the historical quality of the basketball team, not on how "blue chip" the education is. They spend much of their free time before college playing basketball, not preparing for a career as an engineer. And the real degree to be concerned about with regard to "blue chip" is the masters degree or other advanced degree. Someone said that the red-shirt year is tuition free. If so, transferring gave Butler a year of free grad school.

And you make this remarkably ignorant and condescending conclusion based on what exactly?

Oh that's right. You just pulled it out of your ass.

I would agree with tfan, having worked with high school girls' basketball players for many decades.
