The Boston College Eagles appear to have lost another player from their 2015-16 roster. EagleAction.com's Zack Spears is reporting that 2015-16 sophomore Darryl Hicks is transferring out of the program.
It was expected, but now I have confirmed that #BCEagles G Darryl Hicks will transfer. Has two years left to play.— Zack Spears (@Zacklopedia) July 19, 2016
Hicks is the fourth player to transfer out of the Boston College program in the 2016 offseason, joining Sammy Barnes-Thompkins, Idy Diallo and Matt Milon.
While none of the four players departing were regular starters on the team (Barnes-Thompkins started 10 games in Jerome Robinson's usual spot during Robinson's absence due to injury), the departures ultimately create a dilemma in terms of depth and experience. Only 10 players on the Eagles accumulated more than 300 minutes during the 2015-16 season. Of those 10, six will not be on the roster for the Eagles in the 2016-17 season, leaving either due to graduation or transfer.
While the Eagles retain a strong core with Robinson and A.J. Turner, the team is danger of having as many question marks going into the upcoming season as they did going into the previous season.
