    The core 4 question

    This whole core4 going to be evaluated by the NBA begs the question: Why did Naji drop out so quickly ? He certainly is not the least talented of the 4. And it occurs to me Ty has little to gain by staying another year. No way he gets drafted, so why not go to Europe and start making money ? Hope I'm wrong and all 4 come back, but I could see Ty and Q heading to Europe.

    They will be back for one more year. All gone after next year, though.

    Nothing is certain from now until the 29th. Hopefully all 4 return but realistically no Paul or Naji for their senior year....no Bryce Moore and unless DJ can be productive this year who knows. So what does 2020-21 look like? Reason for concern IMO. Too many unknowns.

    Welcome to the new normal.......

    but this isn’t happening just to X, every school with talent good enough to play professionally is going through the same thing. Will they go? Will they stay? Will they transfer? Who do we have coming in as a recruit? As a transfer? How soon will they be ready to play? Every coach is asking the same questions.

    After not really having a recruiting class after Mack left, Steele is putting together the best back to back recruiting classes Xavier has ever had. I would imagine they will fine.

    Yep most likely the team will be extremely young next year as I dont see paul or naji staying for those senior years. However, they should be fun to watch as there will be quite a bit of talent, just young talent.

    It would be nice if can still get a good sit one who has two years eligibility left. However, Steele said all their focus is now on 2020 recruits during an interview with Adam Baum.

    IMO if we have guys leaving early to play in Europe or some lesser league that’s a horrible sign for the program. Look at the elite 8 teams this year... other than one and done types most of the top guys were juniors and seniors that stuck around big programs.

    If guys aren’t nba caliber then ncaa basketball is by far the best exposure for your game and it would probably actually be worth getting a degree if you’re someone who will still need a job after b-ball is over.

    Unless you’re in a top euro league you don’t make much money really. At least not enough to trade A year of top exposure, a college degree, and another year of high end experience for one year of okay money.

    Of course these guys should do what’s best for them, but if leaving your program for a flyer in euro ball is considered what’s best it may be on the program.

    What do you all make of this tweet from Jon Brady, a "Former Professional Basketball Player":

    "Neither Paul Scruggs and Quinten Goodin will be returning to Xavier. HUGE loss for XU and Big East. @HinkleHangover @BarstoolReags @Section_29 @WayButler @ButlerWay"

    Dude says "Inside source texted me"

    Just a troll???
