Mo Watson Jr. Picks Creighton, Illinois Misses Yet Another Transfer

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The same ol' narrative

What is going on with the roster? I don't know. You don't know. The players and coaches might know, but I suspect they don't either.

John Groce missed on his third transfer of the offseason today as Mo Watson Jr., the pesky guard from Boston University, chose Creighton. Watson was a top 100 recruit out of high school, and he left Boston with the desire to play for a bigger team on a bigger stage. He's a legitimate ballplayer.

This miss hurts in that Illinois still doesn't have their dynamite point guard of the future. There are a few guys lined up, sitting at the top of Groce's recruiting priority list, so if he lands one of them, Watson Jr. won't even be a distant memory. If he misses on everybody, today will look a bit uglier.

And, again, the question arises: Why is Groce chasing transfer players in the first place? We don't have any available scholarships. Repeat, WE DON'T HAVE ANY AVAILABLE SCHOLARSHIPS. This has been discussed in depth, and you can revisit the conversation through these links.

Here's to hoping a point guard lies in the future plans. And here's to hoping for no devastating roster changes. Cheers.
