"Whatever happened to...?" (a thread)

Post by Roy McAvoy » March 23rd, 2021, 1:15 pm

Abel Porter: Grad Transferred to Ohio State. Ohio State’s medical team found a medical condition that ended Porter’s basketball career & he never played for Ohio State.

Carson Bischoff: Transferred to UT-Arlington, who offered him a scholarship. He played in 15 games this year for the 9-8 UT Arlington team. He averaged 1.3 ppg in 7.8 mpg and shot 19% from the 3 (6-32 on the year) for his Junior season.

Roche Grootfaam: Transferred to Texas-Tyler, a Division II school. He started 14 of 21 games & played 17 mpg. He averaged 6 ppg & 4 rpg and shot 57% from the floor in his Senior season.

Koby McEwen: Transferred to Marquette where over the past two seasons he averaged 10 ppg, 5 rpg, & 3 apg in 30 mpg and shot 36% FG’s and 31% from the 3. He did not play in any NCAA tournament games while at Marquette.

John Knight III: Averaged 14.4 ppg, 4.2 rpg, & 3.0 apg in 32 mpg in his Senior Season for SUU who won the Big Sky. He shot 57% from the floor and 25% from 3.

Tauriawn Knight: Plays for Southwestern Oklahoma Junior College. Averaged 14 ppg, 4 rpg, 1 pg in 32 mpg & shot 42% from the 3.

Nigel John: He originally commited to USU, then Washington State, then landed at Eastern Oklahoma State JC. He has started 9 of 16 games this year for the JC and is averaging 8.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg, and shooting 51% FG. His team is 8-8 & still has 4 games left.

Ben Fakira: Went back to Australia. He hasn't played competitive basketball on a team from what I could find.

Daron Henson: Originally transferred to Salt Lake Community College and then earned a scholarship to Washington State where he played one season and averaged 3.6 ppg in 7 mpg and shot 41% from the 3.
He transferred to Seattle University this year for his Senior season where he played 7 mpg and averaged 1.5 ppg and shot 11% from the 3.

Crew Ainge: Transferred to Div. III Babson, where he averaged 11 ppg & 4 apg in 32 mpg shooting 35% from 3 last year. They did not have a season this year.

Jeff Otchere: For fun I included him in here. The famous poster Usufan5477 proclaimed in 2018 that Duryea should not be fired because (among other reasons) he had the top remaining JUCO big man ready to come to USU & fix our big man problems. This was Otchere. In two seasons at Stony Brook Otchere averaged 4 ppg, 5 rpg, & 2 bpg in 18 mpg shooting 55% FGs. He transferred to UT Rio Grand Valley this year for his SR season and averaged 5.5 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.8 bpg in 16 mph for the Vaqueros.

Thanks for posting this information. I'm surprised Daron Henson wasn't better in college. I thought he had real potential.

Doesn’t seem like we missed much other than with JK3.

What’s better or is it equal? 14 pts per game in the big sky or 10 ppg in the big East?

Interesting read. Thanks. Also, important info to keep in mind regarding your 13=13 thread. Sometimes guys leaving doesn't end up hurting as much as we think it will.

We didn't land Otchere and look what happened to us instead. 10/10 colossal mistake to dump TD.

JK3 was a much more efficient player. He isn't a good outside shooter, but he gets to the hoop. Koby is a poor shooter that just keeps jacking.

A great thread would be what happened to the kids that had been offered schollies and went somewhere else. A few of those are here but I wonder about the rest.

I started going through the recruiting thread and the first one mentioned was Justice Hill from SLCCC. He ended up at Murray St., averaging 22 mpg, 36% FG. 31% from 3, 3.6 assists, 1.7 TO, and 5.7 ppg. 3.6 assists in 22 minutes is good, but doesn't look to have helped our shooting much.

But...the 2nd name was Malik Zachary from a Florida JC. He went to Buffalo and was suspended for stabbing a Canisius player in a summer pickup game. 22 said we had interest but hadn't offered. Disposition aside he might have been a good "weapon" vs BYU.

From that list, T Knight and Nigel John look like the two I'd most like to have. Koby or JK3 would be solid too, but we really need guards that can shoot.
