Thank you. Helpful to see the revolving doors of BT rosters.

Go Gophers Roster Stability!!
 





Bronny James might take away an opportunity in the nba draft from Cam Christie.
 





Maryland has a few bit players heading out as well - Noah Batchelor (already committed to Buffalo), Jahnathan Lamothe, and Caelum Swanton-Rodger. Similar to the non-Clary PSU exits, none are impact guys, but I mention them for completion's sake.

Thanks for doing this, still weird getting used to seeing the old Pac 12 schools listed in the Big Ten.
 






A.J. Storrr declares for the NBA draft while maintaining college eligibility.

Underwood looks like the grumpiest man alive but he certainly has been able to maintain roster stability there. Kept Shannon through his senior year and got him to elevate his draft status, for one.
 



I thought I remember reading or hearing that Galloway was returning back to Indiana for his 5th year so I googled and found this:

Indiana seniors Trey Galloway and Anthony Leal will return for a fifth season. The in-state duo made the announcement during their senior day speeches following Sunday's game vs. Michigan State.

Can anyone verify?

Thanks. ... confirmed by Indianapolis Star story a while back.
 

Ware is declaring for the draft. Not a surprise, a likely 1st rounder.
Despite looking like he doesn't care to play the game. Reminds me of a player that's playing because he's told to play because he's tall. Going to be an indifferent millionaire however, can't fault that.
