Sheldon Edwards transferring from Valpo.

I'd transfer from Valpo too.

Just saw on FB that Ben Jacobsen is a finalist for the Hugh Durham National Coach of the Year award.  Looking at the eligible conferences it looks like they're all mid major.

Some pretty good players leaving the conference.  Hate to see Murray lose their coach stepping into the Valley.  Will be interesting to see how many of their players stay and if he takes a few w/him to LSU.

Even if he doesn’t take them with him, I wouldn’t be surprised to see several guys leave.  That’s just reality these days any time there’s a coaching change.  Guys don’t go to a school because of the school; they go because of the coaches.

If you were a really good midmajor player, what would stop you from entering the portal each year to see what is out there?

Seems like the best players on all mid-majors who aren't winning enough now want to transfer.

Yep Drakey. Better be good in the portal because you’re going to lose some and need to gain some. Way of life.

The transfer portal really blows. Basically if a P5 misses a guy or underestimates him then the little guys get to develop him and big brother just comes back next year. P5s have nothing to lose

Drake has done as well as anyone in the portal under Devries, even with the departure of Liam.

Norton
Ellingson
Murphy twins
Wilkins
Tank
Penn
And next… Calhoun.

All are big-time talents that made huge impacts during their time at Drake.

And I know he hasn’t lived up to it yet but Brodie provides size and physical tools as well.

I forgot about Joe leaving (blocked it out of my brain). Drake has certainly still benefitted from the portal overall. The good coaches and programs will continue to get quality players from it every year no matter the conference and competition level.

I don’t think Murphy Twins and Wilkins would be considered portal transfers. They were from a juco. Do juco players enter the portal?

I don't think they do, but I think his point is all the same.

Sort of splitting hairs but my point remains. Drake is doing fantastic in the portal and will continue to do so as long as Devries is in Des Moines.

The non juco guys we get generally have maybe one year left as in grad transfers. They guys we lose generally have 3 years. Net loss.

Only still what if, Liam and Joe stayed. Could’ve propelled Drake further. I think it has hurt but loyalty matters. Glad coach is able to stack good seasons upon each other. Looks like with joe and other Bolingbrook players they’re pro transfer portal. I’ll keep on saying this years portal, more athletes will have to go down conference or levels with roster crunch to 13. Less chairs it will be fun to watch

I agree with you Illinois. The last three Drake players who entered the portal, Dominic Olejniczak, Robbins and Yesufu, all suffered because of it. Robbins and Yesufu, especially, would have had way way more playing time on winning teams had they stayed at Drake. Wonder how often Joe thinks back to his glory days at Drake while riding the pine in Lawrence?

I somewhat wish D Rock would pull a Dana ford and get Edwards from Valpo to come play here. Liked watching him this season. Good sized guard who could thrive in our offense. Would give us an athletic wing presence with shooting touch and the ability to put it on the deck.
