RE: Jayce Johnson is transferring?

I am simply stunned by this if true.

Why would Johnson transfer following what has been a very non-productive career at Utah, until late in the last season, when, he finally started showing some progress, only to be slowed once again by injuries. And, leaving when he is the likely starter for next season.

If this was completely his decision, I simply do not understand, from the outside looking in. I DO NOT GET IT!

If, on the other hand, the coaching staff felt his slow offensive development, and history of injuries, was so significant that they "encouraged" him to leave, well, I suppose I can understand, but do not like the smell of it.

Force him out to be replaced by whom?

I was expecting him to be our starter next year, that we would suffer from his lack of scoring ability, and hoping that he would grow in that dimension. While developing Thioune and red-shirting Van Komen in anticipation of the following year. I would be stunned if either are more ready than Johnson.

I fear that Thioune is that not as good as Johnson would be next year, and am convinced that Van Komen needs a red shirt year, to bulk up, and probably skill up, in the same way that Johnson still needs.

The only other explanation, is the one I fear most; that Coach K is so out of touch with how to interact with young athletes, that he drives many of them away, good, bad, injured, or otherwise.

loyter icon NEW: Most definitely a starter. He didn't score a lot of points, but he was fantastic toward the latter half of this year. Great defense and rebounding. (nm)

o NEW: Welcome to the annual Larry has such a young team excuse. Those who back him forget to mention that he's the cause of this annual young team. Here's to another year of average. (nm)

SforkUte icon NEW: I agree. My gut feeling is that Johnson, if true isn’t the only player that is peacing out. (nm)

o NEW: Sean Miller took a huge cut in pay, I guess Rick Barnes will be the new highest paid coach and Larry is number 2 in the PAC.

Puget Ute icon NEW: If they fire him FOR CAUSE they still owe him something like $18M. They may as well keep him around until he actually gets convicted of something or the NCAA bans him, neither of which will happen. (nm)
