Meadows enters the transfer portal.

Michael Meadows from Portland tells me he is entering the transfer portal

He averaged 11.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, with 46.4/37.7/77.8 shooting splits

He had a 39 point game vs. Santa Clara (2/18) & was first player in program history to record a triple-double

Understandable, but a great loss for the Pilots.

Played one year at South Florida, then three years at Wofford. 6'8" 245#, from Charlotte NC. Started every game at Wofford the last two years, averaging 16.5 pts and 6 rbs. The head coach at Wofford was put on leave early December and resigned Dec. 31st, after players complained to the administration about him. In four years he had not had a losing season.

Louisville’s Kamari Lands has officially entered the portal and has already heard from Dayton, Arkansas, St. John’s, Oregon State, LSU, and Portland, a source told @Stockrisers.

Had four 10+ point games after Feb. 1st. Former Top-30 recruit, will draw instant suitors, clearly.

In general, the biggest difference in this year's portal over those of the past is the amount of NIL money that is being thrown about and promised to kids for transferring.

A tough landscape for many mid-majors, including Portland, to operate in.

It's really difficult to compete against a school offering a young man to go to school and play basketball for 50-100k, plus a stipend. Most schools without NIL funds will probably languish in mediocrity, because once a player gains respectability in the conference he/she will be courted by the programs with deep pockets. I realize I'm stating the obvious, but it pains me to see college sports go in this direction. There must be a better and more equitable solution.

There's really no way to check the facts of this story, but I've been told that Texas Tech promised 6-11/245 Fardaws Aimaq $150,000 to transfer to Lubbock...and he did.

Now he's in the portal again.

Wow. If that's true, this may go full blown pay-for-play. Today Texas, tomorrow California, and the next year...Kentucky. I would never fault a young person for taking advantage of an opportunity, but what does this say about the lack of foresight on behalf of the NCAA?

Finally, another really good WCC player in the portal besides UP's Mike Meadows...it's PU's starting point guard, sophomore Mike Mitchell, Jr.

Mitchell joins highly touted but rarely used sophomore PU guard, Majok Deng, in the portal.  Deng played only 32 minutes the entire season.

Sheesh, I counted 155 players who hit the transfer portal JUST TODAY. Seen on Verbal Commits.

I dug a little deeper into this with a couple of usually reliable sources, and was told that Aimaq did NOT play the first 16 games of the season at Texas Tech because he had not yet been paid the $150,000 he had been promised.

Once he was paid, he started every game after that...although it was not a good season by Red Raider standards (16-16).

Welcome to the future of college athletics. Every team can expect to lose at least 40-60 percent of their team each year. Building a traditional program, young men growing and achieving together has become an anomaly.

Had a very brief chat with the staff about guys in the portal they might be pursuing, and was told, "they are all looking for money."

Here's a question.  If a team is out of scholarships, it doesn't matter, correct?  If a player is given $$$, he can just use some of it to pay his own tuition as a walk-on, especially at a state school, right?

Well, you can’t really blame the NCAA. They fought NIL in the courts and lost.

Ok, maybe you can. It really goes back to the early 1950’s when the NCAA came up with the phrase “student-athlete” to position themselves that players weren’t employees to avoid paying Workmen’s comp awards, then grated them as exactly that for 65+ years. They hardened that so much over years the courts took a second look.
