    I agree, but I also don't think that's the reason to ding him in this case.

    I'm more curious about how all the defections are happening. It's easy to blame the coaching staff, but I bet there was also some bad chemistry happening on some level with the players. If this kid is averaging 10 pts and shooting 44% from the floor as a sophomore, then he's trending really solid for Wichita State.

    He shot 71% from line as a freshman. Malcolm Bernard shot 59% in his one year at Xavier.

    if Burton has the same kind of leadership ability, tenacity and will to win that Malcolm had, sign him up.

    Brian Snow posted on the 247 WVU board saying WVU has interest, but one of the WVU beat writers (he's incredibly accurate with his news unlike some of the other mods on different team boards) said that it's a long shot, so may be worth making note of, think we have a good chance.

    I thought I remember reading in the recent piece about him transferring that he had like 50 schools reaching out to him. Even if the real number of legit high level schools he would consider is about 10, and WVU is out, it wouldn’t make it a sure thing.

    I would imagine we are one of his top choices partly because of prior relationships and partly because, well we are X.

    You may have addressed this somewhere else but why all the transfers at Wichita? Don't they have like 7 guys transferring?

    Edit: I see others talked about it but not sure anyone really knows or at least answered it in this thread.

    What prior relationships? XU didn't recruit or offer him before.

    Lol I really need to start finishing my thoughts good God, what I meant by we have a good chance is that it kind of falls in line with the theories of those guys not seeing eye to eye with Greg Marshall, because well.. Huggins is even more of a hard-ass, while by early indications it doesn't seem Coach Steele falls in that category, the prior relationships are a bonus, and program tradition is even better... also Tyrique Jones quoted Kevin Marfo's tweet and put the sword emojis for X, for what it's worth.

    Marfo would be a perfect fit to address at least 2 frontcourt concerns....rebounding and experience. I think the 6'10 guy from Columbia would also, even though our Columbia transfers have not adjusted well to BE competition. BTW, does Hanson hold a scholarship?
