I'm sure they are always recruiting as someone else could move on on their own or someone could be asked to move on. As Mike stated there is still 16 on the roster with Gueye and the 2 walkons, who are no slouches in their own right. If I remember correctly Garnett had a scholarship offer from Southern that he turned down and I think everyone would agree that Domingue is talented enough to contribute and could easily be on scholarship at some lower tier D1 schools. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else move on just because they are buried on the depth chart.

    Yeah, its never going to be the same again. Will take some getting used to. We could see this revolving door coming from a mile away. Its obviously too late, but a no transfer rule within same conference would have been nice. But maybe it wasn't defendable either.

    He may not be good enough to play in the NBA but he may be good enough for G league. He was not invited to G league camp this year. He may think playing well at an SEC school well get him the G league invite next year. In his own mind that may open the door for an eventual NBA opportunity. Note I have no idea if he will play in the SEC. Just an example with that term. Also, mindset of many college players is they will eventually be in NBA. More need to listen to Charles Barkley.

    Today is the last day to enter portal. I was told they donít expect anyone else to move on. Now someone could move on to a D2 school or a JUCO after today. Remember last year does not count in regard to any eligibility issue. It is possible recruiting going on is for future seasons at this stage.

    I think it is still a possibility Cedric decides to come back. That would be in event he does not get the type offer he is looking for. Once again we canít use his scholarship on anyone else so keeping door open is wise for both parties.

    If Garnett, Charles, or Thomas have to play any minutes this year, we are in for a long season.

    Mike, I don't think playing in the SBC hinders anyone from getting an invite into the G league. These scouts have too many ways and means to check out any potential invitees to there league or draft board. I mean Elfrid was drafted in the first round of the NBA based on his defensive and ball skills. Making the USA team didn't hurt either, but I don't believe they just miss on players because they aren't playing for the SEC.

    I agree but the people in his ear don't.

    It is all about who he is listening to and the agenda of the ones he is listening to.

    He will get a look at another school for sure.

    But in the event itís not to his likings, I respectfully disagree Mike. While he would certainly be an asset to this years team, I personally would not want him back in the locker room.

    However, I donít have the temperature of the teams relationship with him, so maybe they would welcome him back with open arms.

    I think he is good enough for the G League. Look at some guys who got shots here, Jay Wright from here did, as well as Hunter from Georgia State. Cedric is on par if not better than those guys.

    I agree that the SBC is not why he did not get a G league camp invite. That is what we think. Pro scouts probably see his lack of size and recognize shortcomings in his game that probably won't change with time. Obviously others have a different opinion. He may think he has better NIL opportunities at a higher profile school. Again, I think that is misguided as schools will use people their fans are familiar with in that regard.

    I think he’s good enough to play in the G league but I don’t think he’s as good as RJ Hunter was. Even though he’s not in the league anymore, Hunter was a first round draft pick. Russell is not even close to that. I think he’s making a mistake leaving but what do I know.

    I think you know quite a bit!

    Maybe he will get a "strong ass offer" from Will Wade
