There have been a lot of rumors flying around about the possible transfers in and out of the BC program so let’s have a quick discussion and separate fact from speculation

Fact


-At this point no players have asked for a release to transfer. That means there have been no departures

-The player who has been most rumored to transfer is center Idy Diallo and as I said at this point it is just a rumor. Recently Diallo and Christian sat down (as he does with every player after the season) and discussed Diallo’s future. According to a source, Christian was upfront with Diallo and admitted that he couldn’t make any promises about playing time in the future. Based on their conversation Diallo informed the staff that he was probably going to explore transfer options. Since that time though Diallo has not come back and asked for his release.

None of this should be a big surprise as Diallo didn't play in the ACC Tournament even though the game was a blowout. A source said after the game that the center was a healthy DNP.

-Christian has officially met with all of the players on the team and discussed future playing time. At this time, Diallo is the only player that informed the staff that he will explore transfer options.

Speculation


-Even though Diallo is the only player who has discussed openly about transferring with the staff it doesn’t mean he is the only player that could leave. There is speculation that 1 or 2 other players could be leaving as well. It’s most likely things will pick up in the coming weeks when "transfer season" gets into full swing. As BC brings in transfers the future projected playing time of some of its players may grow smaller.

-BC coaches have let it be known to just about every AAU and prep school coach who will listen that they are looking for both a five and a four. It’s expected that BC will add a player at each position as a transfer but until players officially ask for their release then the BC coaches can’t talk with the players. Obviously there are other channels that the staff can go through to gauge player interest though.

Quick Recruiting Note


-Adam Thompson of the Sun Journal reported that 2016 guard Kyran Bowman will make BC one of his five official visits along with Cal, Cincinnati, Memphis and Missouri. A source close to the situation says that Bowman is expected to make his official visit to the Heights next Monday.
