And 4 incoming. I could be wrong, but this sounds like a lot both ways, even considering the coaching change.
*edit- referring to New Mexico, not Creighton.
he was a pretty stealthy transfer
the al huss (former NM asst) connection is the obvious reason
he'll get on the court if he can be a defensive stopper (which he seems to have those tools) - there should be a lot of firepower on next year's team - marcus foster will be graduating - but the jays are pretty stacked at that wing spot with good young shooters - and khyri thomas - who might be one of the best two way players in the country
he hasn't shown up for any summer league games yet - so i haven't gotten any first hand reports of how he looks. but hoping to get some soon
thanks for info!
I did not know about the connection with the assistant coach.
I knew Jefferson planned on taking more visits, but was sold on Creighton after his visit there.
Damien just announced maybe a week or so ago - so I am not sure he is enrolled yet or on campus.
I think the redshirt year to get adjusted and develop will be a big help for him. Although, I admit, the NCAA truly needs to look at allowing transfers immediate eligibility when your coach gets fired.
Again, I think he will be a very good player for you guys.
