All this means is we are making room to add some good quality recruits to the 2020 signing class.
“Always hustling, hustling”
Is there a need for that?

If we only have 60 scholarship players and several of them graduate...and we can only sign 25, no one needs to be pushed out to make room for new recruits.

Ryan Johnson is a suprise, dude is all vol and has been since he was a kid but I understand he wants pt and probably won't get it here
Wondering if it’s a graduate program thing. May want to go somewhere else for a specific engineering program. Gets his masters paid for from an elite program; not a pro prospect from what I’ve read. Definitely a smart kid.

Never said anybody was pushed out, just maybe not encouraged to stay, recruited over or lack of playing time, etc... happens every year.

“Nothing to see here, move along folks, let’s keep the line moving...”

Now you say they werent pushed out..
Which is it and why?


If they were encouraged to leave/ pushed out, why? So the lack if scholarship players can become a built in excuse??

I have zero idea why they left amd will not speculate. But your inference that they were encouraged to leave to.make room for better players makes no sense..

Let just agree to disagree here, or misunderstanding.
I will just say, why would some one want to transfer? Playing time, doesn’t fit the system, too far from home, not a fit with coaching staff. Really too many to list.
This staff seems, at least from the outside looking in, to care for these kids on the team and wants the best for each situation.
At the same time, always getting the roster better to compete.
