    Shot 39% from 3 this season, and 79% on free throws. Good numbers, and he improved both from his previous season.

    Normally: no. But the coaching staff at Cleveland State was just fired. So,...he may be able to apply for a waiver to become eligible this season.

    If Coach White even wants him to play immediately. I could see it as more beneficial to the player, and the program, if he sat a year. Great piece to add to the puzzle, regardless.

    But...if he committed before the firing, wouldn't timing be a concern for that reason?

    If he gains eligibility I’m pretty certain Ques Glover will redshirt.

    From the linked article:

    The Gators now have two transfers that will be sitting out next season as Appleby joins Louisiana Tech transfer Anthony Duruji. Both will come into the 2020-21 season as 4th year juniors and should both be expected to produce solidly in that season. Having veteran players stepping in will make up for the loss of talent this year’s team should have and these moves really help the long-term outlook of the roster.

    I’m not totally up on the rules or how the ncaa is applying them. I would think every action/reaction is a factor.

    He might want to redshirt though and get more minutes the following two years.

    This is actually a really good point. We will probably lose some substantial talent to the NBA after this year, and these guys will step in to provide upperclass leadership, and they will have spent a year in the program. We won't be replacing the departing freshmen and sophomores only with new freshmen.

    Scottie Lewis probably is a lottery pick after this season. We know that AN and Mann want to get to the NBA as soon as possible. However, as of right now there is a pretty good chance that neither of them would get drafted in the 2020 draft. That doesn’t mean that they won’t blow out of here.
