The timing of the Adam Miller departure at Illinois and the Nesbitt portal is certainly interesting

Or Jacobs departure?

I’m not saying either of you guys are wrong, but with the amount of names going in and out of the portal, it’s hard for me to believe any of them are actually directly connected. That doesn’t mean they’re not, but it’s just all so crazy right now, trying to connect all the dots almost seems like an exercise in futility at this point.

Sometimes there's news of local kids wanting to transfer way before they hit the portal 🤫

Vol fans who are from TN cannot stand Penny so they are happy with any trouble with Memphis hoops team.

I agree with Vols fans for once. 
I loved him as a player but can’t since he started at Memphis.

I do not know whether Nebbitt wants to come back to St. Louis or not. What I know about Nesbitt is that when he chose Memphis he almost certainly had visions of playing enough to become a star there, as he was in High School. Then he found out it was not going to happen. Maybe he learned a lesson (there is always someone that is better than you really are), or he did not (he thinks he was cheated and did not get what he deserved). I think a lot of the early transfers (freshmen or sophs) may have this or a similar emotional conflict to deal with. I think we should try to take the ones that learned the truth and not the ones that feel cheated.

Nesbitt could easily and justifiably feel like he was lied to by Hardaway painting a picture of him being an instant "one and done" star. Also playing away from home may not have been all he thought it would be. It doesn't mean he can't still be a star or attain the NBA. But the reality is that the NBA, isn't likely in one year and may not happen at all. The vast majority of exceptional high-school bb players don't see the NBA. It is wise for players to seek there potential AND get the degree.

There are also advantages to becoming a home town hero, playing in front of friends and family, and playing on a team that has good chemistry.

I agree that we don't want spoiled young men, at the same time I dont expect a perfect path or consistency in the thoughts and actions of teenagers.

I think SLU and coach Ford offers a good path and place for young men to mature as players and men.

Yes

Which school he would consider “home “ is what we have to worry about.

Here’s what he had to say about SLU last summer:

"That's just home. All of my family could see me play and it is family oriented. I know all of the players so that's great."

Nesbitt is a 6’6” guard that can do everything on the court. When he commits to team blue tomorrow - watch out A10. Our team will be full of top 200 kids and then Okoro and Nesbitt who were all-americans. Let’s f***** goooo
