It's Friday, Friday, gotta transfer to a new school on Friday.
Sophomore forward Mike Shaw is transferring from the university of illinois and has his release #scoop college coaches interested hit my dm— Daniel Poneman ✡ (@SwagAir) March 29, 2013
While I don't doubt that Mike is transferring, the fact that the guy #scooping the story is telling coaches to "hit my DM" makes me question it a little. Though maybe this bro just wants to bro, and transfers are what bros do, bro.
Anyway, as we went over already, this isn't a shock. So far two of the three players we've expected to transfer are reportedly doing so. I suppose all we do know is sit back and wait for Devin Langford to do the same.
Shaw appeared in 14 games for the Illini this season, playing a total of 50 minutes with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Like Djimde, it was pretty clear that he just wasn't a fit for what John Groce likes to do, though Shaw got more opportunities than Ibby did.
