Two years of eligibility remaining.
Will he have to sit out a year? He's already used his free transfer and I don't know why he'd get an exemption. I don't fully understand the new rules yet.

I think he's undersized and the hype about his speed didn't amount to much, but I think that was partially due to the system not setting enough screens.

Still, I didn't see him making a ton of mistakes and he was willing to drive more than others.

I think he'd be a reliable role player. If he wants to start he needs to go to something like the MAC or Horizon.

Neither do I.

Saunders and Zach Harvey both just committed to Will Wade at McNeese St however.

Maybe they're both "grad transfers"?

First Tari, now Saunders and Harvey. Will Wade going after Brannen recruits, lol. Maybe he'll try to get MAW and Davenport too.

18/19 Bearcat Redshirt LaQuill Hardnett is transferring from Buffalo for his final year of eligibility.

Averaged 11 and 7 while starting 18 of 31 games for their 15-17 team last season.

Davenport to Arkansas. Good to see him go to another high major program. Hopefully he can be successful as a high energy shooting spark there.

Arkansas attempted 15.9 3s/game last season as a team which put them at 350th in the nation. They only hit 31.3% of those attempts (326th nationally).

Seems like he was recruited to fill a pretty particular role/need.

They also play more positionless with a bunch of 6'4 to 6'9 guys. Davenport will fit well in that scheme. We're very rigid positionally, and it was hard to hide JD's flaws that way.

Jarrett Hensley commits to Southern Illlinois.

They were 23-10 last season (KenPom #139) and finished 3rd in the MVC before losing to conference champion Drake in the MVC tournament semi-finals.
