Default 6'4 Tori McCoy transferring from Ohio State

Dawn was runner up in 2016. Would be a great addition.

Default Re: 6'4 Tori McCoy transferring from Ohio State

I saw McCoy in many OSU games this year, her play was meh.. If Dawn goes after any transfer, I hope it's Slocum.
Two years from now, we could have a 3 guard lineup with Slocum, Henderson, and Harris. Personally, I'd hope to get away from the taller, slower bigs, and opt for faceup 4 versatile forwards in the future.

Really got to wonder what goes on in the thought processes of these kids, and how their parents are involved. Girl commits to a program, and one year later is transferring out. What did she see in the year she was there, that she wasn't able to see in the year plus that she studied, visited, and communicated with the school during her recruitment?

Slocum left Maryland because she was homesick. She is likely transferring much closer to home. McCoy was coming off a serious knee injury and still made the Big 10 All freshman team.

I am not saying this is the case but maybe she had a relationship with a teammate and maybe it didn't work out.

Maybe she did not like the coaching staff now that she is in the program and they don't have to sell it to her anymore.

Maybe she hates the campus or classes.

Maybe teammates she thought she would play with are either no longer there or have been supplanted.

Maybe her position and the way the program plans to use her has changed.

any number of factors could play into it.

Maybe it is not worth playing in front of nearly empty arenas against vastly inferior or superior opponents.

FWIW Ohio State tried hard to lure Dawn Staley away from USC but Ray Tanner convinced her to stay, in a substantial way.

I feel like we have moved on with Jennings, Herbert Harrigan, and La Daizha Williams, and have our sights set on Nelson-Oboda. McCoy would make things a little to crowded in the paint when what we need are big time scorers Gray and Kaela Davis.

Her Dad said she wants to play on the perimeter. Not sure that's the mindset we need from a 6'4" player but if Staley is interested then I hope it works out.

She's going to be a post player no matter where she goes. She is a 6'4 player that runs the floor decently but she doesn't run like a perimeter player, doesn't shoot the ball very well, is not a slasher. Her biggest asset is her size and athleticism to provide defense and rebounding. we had in mind for her to be our replacement for Coates because that is what her game resembles. I do think there is a good chance we get her though. If she is miserable, she just saw us win a championship saw that we will have openings and like to take on transfers. Another team to look ourt for here is Tennessee who was strong with her too. Her and Kushkitua would make a formidable front court. But she is going have to get over the idea that she is not a post player. Aja Wilson wanted to be a perimeter player too, but reality is coaches know better most of the time.

Red flag for me. But I trust DS to make appropriate decision. Personally, I want unselfish players, that are willing to do whatever is necessary to help the team win. Don't want players who will pout when things are not perfect.

As for McCoy, she played for a coach that allows its guards to just jack up shots. It's all about K. Mitchell at OSU. Maybe she felt she was not being properly developed. However, she is a post. She could play high post, bus she's not a wing. If she's not willing to be a part of something bigger than herself, then I would not want to jeopardize recruiting NaLyssa Smith and Olivia Nelson-Ododa.

LaDazhia Williams is going to be a good one folks. Kiki will be much improved next season and Jennings will be a two year starter.

Yeah, I see numerous red flags surrounding this one.

We can't name a single reason, but there are many and she was miserable daily? Sounds like another situation where a certain mom tweeted a short while back tbh......
