In light of the mass exodus of players in our program, I noticed that Eron Harris was transferring from West Virginia.
He's from Indianapolis, 6'3", and shot 42% from 3 last year. Given the lack of shooting on the team I was pretty interested. With him, Anthony Lee, and possible transfers from other programs (Marquette, VT, VCU, etc), I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on transfers like Eron Harris (semi-proven player with multiple years of eligibility left).
My personal take on it is that we could use any shooter we find that has any type of college experience, especially in a major conference. I also get very excited when I see any type of good guard on the market, because it seems teams with great guards and serviceable big men (Brimah from UConn) fare so much better come tournament time.
As for players for next year, I'd really like to see us pick up Anthony Lee and Cunningham in addition to our class we have. If I'm right that gives us two scholarships for 2015, where I hope to get a point guard and a big man. Our turnover situation should improve quite a bit with no Hollowell or Noah, and the lack of a big could cause some better passing on the offensive end (like what happened the year before Cody, versus Illinois and @MSU). Plus with at least two elite guards (JBJ and Yogi), we could make some teams hurt come tourney time.
