America East Transfers to Watch

There is more glamor around a top rookie- a four year player who you build your future around-  but transfers provide a two year jolt that can immediately shift the power balance in the America East.

The Glove?

G Russell Moore, Albany: Will Brown has set the bar high for the John Logan College Transfer by calling him UA’s best defender. Expect to see him in the starting lineup and guarding the opponents’ best player.

G Matt Griffin, Boston University: It would follow that the 6′ point guard who transferred from Rider has a leg up on the competition in race for league guard as he had a chance to practice with the team all last season.

F Patrick Hazel, Boston University: Any major conference transfer turns heads, so the league will keep its eye out for Marquette transfer Patrick Hazel. An athletic, but undersized big, Hazel could be a super role player for Coach Chambers.

G Darryl Partin, Boston University: A 6’6 wing whose last stop was at LaSalle of the Atlantic-10. How Chambers sorts these guys out is anybodies guess.

G Raheem Singleton, Maine: Maine is desperate for a point guard and Raheem could be the perfect fit. The Levance Fields look-a-like was a leader and a winner at the junior college level. His primary task will be to find open looks for the league’s premiere shooter, Gerald McLemore.

F Matt Glass, Vermont: The UMass transfer returns closer to home and will make an immediate impact. He can play multiple positions, has plenty of range and will be one of Vermont’s top offensive options.

G Travis King, UMBC: King is a defensive-minded guard played for George Washington last season but can play for the Retrievers’ immediately because he is a graduate student. Randy Monroe will look for King to help change the identity of a team that played little to no defense last season.

F Laurence Jolicoeur, UMBC: UMBC must have one heck of a graduate programs- on September 14, two weeks after the first day of classes, UMBC announced that Jolicoeur had enrolled in the graduate program and would be eligible for the upcoming season. The athletic 6’9 forward who started 39 games for Manhattan and boasts an intimidating Youtube highlight reel.
