I swear to you I had hardly finished hitting publish on the story about Mike Shaw transferring when I found out that there was another transfer. And of course this all game about an hour and a half after we originally found out about Ibby Djimde.
But it's all official now. Marcus Jackson is reporting that as I mentioned in the Shaw post, Devin Langford is transferring as well.
The moves will free up three scholarships for Illinois.
So there's three scholarships for us. How will John Groce use them, I don't know.
As for Langford, he's the same story as Shaw and Djimde. He just didn't fit here. Personally I've always felt like Devin was a terrific athlete but he wasn't quite a basketball player. He may still become one, and a good one at that, but it was obvious that it wouldn't be happening here.
