2014 F Cole Huff (Transfer Commit)

Postby hilltopalum » Tue Apr 15, 2014 12:36 pm

Nothing on the web to indicate the Jays are interested, especially since we have no room, but Nevada transfer Cole Huff seems like he would succeed in Creighton's offense. Stretch four with great shot who rebounds well. Cole is a Sophomore and would have to sit then have two years left.

We'll fancy that, Hilltop mentions a kid out of the blue and then all of a sudden there are tweets stating that Creighton has been granted "a release" to talk with Cole (Iowa too).

That hilltop is amazing how he can magically mention a kid and, poof, it happens! ;)

Sounds like Nevada blocked 43 schools on the west coast cause they think he was tampered with (I guess NC State isn't the only school that tampers). Initially story states he wants to play closer to home (California). 45% from the field, 40% from 3 last year, 12 ppg. Nice stat line. Guess it sounds like we are still recruiting...

CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello just retweeted someone that said Creighton and Iowa have requested and received a release for Cole Huff.

Does this mean that we can talk with him by requesting a release?

Yup, that is exactly what it means. He is free to talk to us and even transfer here if he so desires. He would, of course, still have to sit out a year since he doesn't fall under the senior exception.

Looks like Cole is going to have some sort of a hearing to try to get some of the limits lifted as to where he can transfer.

Dayton, Iowa, Michigan, Vanderbilt, and Creighton are the schools of most interest to Cole according to Twitter.

As of yesterday, UCLA, USC, Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount and USD were all removed from Huff's restricted list.

Anyone know anything about his game other than 3's? Looks like he would be a good pickup but I never watched Nevada play this season

not to hijack the thread but these kinds of restrictions on players are a load of crap.

Interesting....figured we were out of the running once west coast schools got released.

Hoops transfer Cole Huff sets his visit date to Iowa and Dayton. Working on date with Creighton.

Some "message board" fodder from a Michigan fan if you want to believe it.

I mentioned in the last Cole Huff thread that I work with his father at a High School in Inglewood. He stands outside my classroom between each class period and we talk basketball so I have a fairly good relationship for aquiring inside info in this case. I just spoke with him an gathered some valuable intel.

Cole "won" his appeal to Nevada's blocked schools. They unblocked 5 schools: Pepperdine, San Diego State, UCLA, USC and I think Santa Barbara. Cole is not interested in USC because he does not like their coaches (there was a situation with one of their assistants when Cole was a senior in high school that has soured him to that staff). The only one of those schools that he is really interested in is UCLA. He is still waiting to hear from them. His former AAU coach told him on Saturday that UCLA wanted to do an in home visit today or tomorrow but he has not heard anything since. IF UCLA offers, they will be the favorite.

The current favorite is Iowa. Cole and his dad are planning a visit and have very strong interest. Creighton has been pushing hard and he likes them as well but they seem to be behind Iowa.

It does not sound like Michigan has acctually given commitable offers to Cole or Byron Wesly just yet. Cole's dad told me that Belien is only really interested in the two of them if McGary decided to leave and the coaching staff is still waiting on that decision (from the sound of it the Mitch is still genuinely undecided). It was somewhat unclear if Huff and Wesley were only interested in Michigan if McGary left or if Michigan was only interested in them in McGary's gone. Either way, those two are only in the fold if McGary is not. I realize that that doesn't really make sense since they would have to sit out a year and McGary is likely gone after next year either way, but that is the information I was given. Maybe with MAAR's commitment they don't have the scholarship to offer but I was under the impression that they still had one spot open.

I will try to gather more information and clear up some of the ambiguities in the post after the next class period ends.

Go Blue!
