Unless Izzo pushed him out, I am not sure why a guy getting 20+ minutes a game wants to transfer from a program like MichSt. Perhaps he was worried about playing time with Tyson Walker coming in.....but he was signed a week after Watts entered the portal. I doubt it would be Bates as he is a SF. Maybe it was Christie....a 5 star SG they signed.....kid is a SG and is 6'6"! Mo was only 6'7" and was our center...albeit a monster wide body.
