Maybe Oats is looking for guys.who will actually buy into what he’s selling. That takes guys coming in with something to prove. We will see how it plays out. 

You can have all the 4/5 star recruits but if a coach can’t get them to play some kind of team mentality it will be tough to win at a high level as evidenced as to what happened at Alabama last year. As far as Sears, yes he was a very good player in the MAC but when he came up against the better quick and athletic players he struggled. The SEC has more of those type players so it will be interesting how he will fit in.

Good for him. While I am greatly opposed to the transfer portal, he owes Ohio nothing, as he was there for 5 years, playing 4 of them. If it wasn't for the crazy freebie year, he'd be done, so if he wants to go elsewhere for one, all the best for him. He was always a thorn in our side!

Definitely a good list of schools.

I begrudge grad transfers nothing.

Former Top 150 recruit who couldn't see the court at Louisville. Had offers from plenty of P5 schools out of HS. 6-11 forward. Will be a junior next season.

Was ranked 117th and a 4-star recruit by Rivals. Planned on redshirting freshmen year but didn't due to Covid season.

Cool. Can't wait to see him BVP us every time we play 🙄

Makes sense, Ben (Bennett) Vander Plas is named after his father’s college coach Dick Bennett, and he played with Tony Bennett. Didn’t realize that until they played in the NCAA tournament and the announcers mentioned it. I think he can fit in a Sam Hauser type role from a couple years ago there. Good for him and I’m glad he’s out of the MAC lol

Toledo's Ryan Rollins chose to remain in the NBA Draft. Obviously a big loss for them, but good for the MAC showing it can produce talents like him and Preston. It will be interesting to see where he goes and how he progresses 

Here is BT estimate of impact:

Toledo will likely be one of the favorites even without Rollins.

Great path. Went from signing with MAC powerhouse (at the time), to MAC doormat, to Juco.

Put some respekt on their name, they're the last MAC West team to make the men's NCAA tournament 😂
