    Anyone know if this always means they are def transferring? I would assume that means so but they can pull out of the portal right? Find out who has interest? I would think Elias could be a big part of the teams plans next year.

    Anyone have any examples of someone being in the portal and returning to their current school?

    A bit surprised and I was really looking forward to seeing him aa an upperclassman. Kinda wonder if this means we are about to sign someone.

    Hope it works out for Elias.
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Yes that's correct, you can pull out of the portal at any time (all the examples I have are for college football but I could list them if you really want), it's a way to gauge interest, though the vast majority do end up leaving.

    Yeah, same thought, first instinct was that I'm curious if that means anything with Harvey, and if he's gonna get added to the class. Kind of bummed about this is Elias does leave, because he showed some awesome flashes throughout this season, I really think he could contribute and be a knock down shooter in the future, but I can definitely understand wanting a bigger role on a team. Definitely wish him the best.

    Not surprising.

    He didn't play much this year, and with the incoming class, I think would see less time next year.

    He really wasn't the shooter we thought he would be- shot 35% at X overall and 32% from the three, although he shot better this year. He did hustle on defense.

    Good luck to him.

    Kira Lewis was in the portal for about a week when Avery Johnson got let go at Alabama. Once they hired Nate Oats about a week later, he announced he'd be returning.
