He's a graduate transfer, of course he's eligible immediately
So...it's officially official?
According to University officials
While good to know there wasn't any doubt he would be under the graduate transfer exception. He has only one year of eligibility left and wouldn't come here to sit out his last season. Now, if Murphy were to be cleared I would be excited.
True, but consider this particular excitement as a practice run...
Hmmm - excitement - now just what might cause such a phenomenon:
1 - Anticipated Lottery winnings
2 - Solving a big problem that you have faced for a while
3 - The smell of bread or pizza baking
4 - etc.
I think I would have used the term "anticipation" rather than excitement, but then, all words are at least somewhat ambiguous.
If his last name was Smith instead of Horford would we be as excited?
Does anyone have the stats on success rate of transfers based on performance at previous location? Was he in the wrong system? Didn't get a fair shake? Was he just a good player on a bad team (someone has to score and rebound)?
I look at some of the Gator transfers that left and some really did well (Boggan, Huertas, Appleby, Al-Kaleem, etc) I am not sure anyone was sooo excited when they heard they were transferring to their school.
I always thought Horford had more talent than Morgan, but Beilein didn't think he gave them the best chance to win. He is a great coach just like Donovan and we would say the same thing if it was a Gator player. If he gave us the best chance to win, then Donovan would play him.
How do you view transfers?
A certain Smith came to our football team in 2006 and we won a national championship.
I am not expecting the reincarnation of brother Al, but after losing Harris, he can provide us 20 mpg and a combined 10 points/rebounds as well as senior leadership
Isn't Murphy already cleared to begin playing in January?
There was some talk of him trying to play in the fall too. Seems unlikely though.
I don't believe he's been cleared for any portion of the season yet.
Would you like to have Yeguete back? Exactly what is the difference in the two statistically? They are largely the same player at their respective positions.
No one is expecting Horford to become all-league. But given the fact that Harris is gone and Walkers is the only big we have who can play the five, I for one am thrilled about getting a smart, experienced, high-character kid with good size who can defend the post, rebound, and execute some of our high-low stuff.
I would be thrilled to have Yeguete like stats and intangibles. The biggest concern about Yeguete was his durability. I hope both Horford and C Walker can get through the season healthy, because behind them it Doe Doe
I think that Horford has a pretty good chance to start for us. I don't see the comparison with Yeguete. Horford can do more on offense and probably less on defense. Did Rashid al Kaleem really do well after he left? I thought that he was a recruiting mistake and that we should have gone after the Lakeland kid (Anderson?) who ended up going to UConn. One transfer that hurts is Pitchford. He has become a big-time player and could have done really well for us.
Wasn't necessarily comparing them as players, but more so in terms of their statistical productivity. Both give you good defense, rebounding, intelligence, and effort, even though they aren't going to fill up the stat sheet.
