    Well theses other teams don't stop recruiting and have to backfill spots for their teams so I am sure it was not planned. But some school caught his attention.

It's much easier to replace an athlete that didn't work out or got drafted with a really good player that has been developed and has a number of college games under his belt.

    Asking if you have to be a current student/athlete to use the portal?

    Before his announcement (that he was coming back to utilize the unique eligibility rule) he was no longer a UL athlete.

    Can you enter the portal teamless?

    Grad transfers do it all the time.

    Not if they are not grad students. He's no grad student.

    Thanks, the answer to my question is no.

    Which means Russell's announcement that he was coming back makes no sense.

    Good luck to you, Ced! I was at the Ole Miss game when Ced was a true freshman knocking down 3 after 3 until getting a tech for taunting the student section (I think). That was a good show. I thought he would be a much more consistent shooter than he ended up being. I suppose the foot injury didn't help him any.
    I think he probably has a good chance of making some money overseas.

    His intention was to come back. That has changed as his agent has been in his ear for a while now. I think he is getting bad advice but it doesn't matter anymore as we have to move on

    Transfer portal is showing to be a killer of college sports with the not sitting out a year rule in affect. They need to clamp down on that rule because it is negative impacting

    1 coach said a player has to decide he is going to listen to. Himself, other people (agents and hangers on) or the truth (typically the coaching staff where he is).

    He would prefer not to play overseas due to his family situation. Without the Covid issue, he would not have another year. Unique situation in that he is a fifth year senior. I wonder if he would play in Canada where that minor pro league operating without the border shutdown. Frank Bartley started there and is now making a good living playing in Europe. Bryce Washington has also played there. Regardless of where he ends up, I wish Cedric well.

    Here is another point. We can't replace him due to his scholarship here being based on being a fifth year player. We are at 14 now due to Dou Gueye (another fifth year player) and the normal limit is 13. Still there are 16 on the roster with 2 walkons. Lots of guys will fight it out for limited minutes and redshirting is surely an option for some.

    I think you mean ‘family adviser’. If he had an agent, he would be ineligible, correct?

    I thought the same thing. Did a google search. Apparently the rules were changed a few years ago to allow for agents.

    Well this hurts next years team. I had heard he was getting differing information fed in both ears, so the announcement of him returning to UL was kind of surprising.

    Wish him the best as he supposedly has high aspirations to make “the league.” Individually, a SBC conference player of year could have topped off his resume. Guess he thinks he can perform at a high level at a “bigger” school and still get credit for his individual play.
