With a growing list of players transferring in college basketball, I still haven't heard who will be transferring from our beloved Rams. I'm thinking Lyles, but haven't heard anything. Does anyone else have any ideas or have you heard anything?

I would understand if Lyles does but figured he would have by now so:

Nobody.


so then you're suggesting one of the 4 new recruits will decommit???

Someone's gotta go Swifty if there's gonna be room for Larrier/Tillman/Gilmore/Williams....and quite frankly, each of those 4 young men offer VCU basketball a more productive future than My. Lyles. So, hopefully the hold-up is because Coach Smart and Staff are finding a good landing point.

Why would you figure he'd have to do it by now?

If my memory serves, I believe Okereafor announced late April and Tuoyo's plans weren't known until well into May.

Also pretty sure Issiah Grayson didn't officially leave until late May in 2010.

He's prob gotta finish his classes & exams first.

I'm almost 100 % positive it'll be Lyles...

look at who's leaving/has left....
Rob- Graduated
Ju- Graduated
Shannon- Left Team

So there's 3 openings... We have 4 recruits coming in next year...

Jonathan Williams- PG
Terry Larrier- SF
Mike Gillmore- PF
Justin Tillman- PF

So our roster looks like this now

Guards
Weber
Lewis
Lyles
Johnson
Brooks
Williams

Guard/Forward
Graham
Burgess

Forwards
MAC
Guest
Simmons
Larrier
Gilmore
Tillman

Walk-ons
Burston
Burke

So that leaves us 14 scholarship players... when there's only room for 13.

So it's either gotta be Lyles or Simmons. You know Weber, Graham, MAC, Lewis, Johnson & Burgess aren't going anywhere.

It wouldn't make sense for Larrier, Williams Gilmore or Tillman to go elsewhere as Shaka is still here.

Guest is going to be a senior... so it shouldn't be him

I see potential in Brooks to be another good 3 point shooter like Troy & B-Rozz... so I doubt its him.

Which leaves us Lyles or Simmons. We got enough guards imo that we don't need Lyles & he rarely ever played this year & its only going to get worse when we add Williams.

Plus Lyles didn't really show too much to keep him around at VCU

Simmons was recognized at the Awards Banquet for most improved and lauded for his hard work. He is not going anywhere.

Yeah, more than likely it'll be Lyles unless someone decommits (which would probably be the most shockingly earth-shattering news of the offseason).
