I can't speak for everyone, but I do like Kerwin a lot. I would have to think any player who played 20 min a game as a freshman for Roy Williams and shot 52.5% from the floor and 42% from three would be a quality transfer here. We are coming off finishing dead last in the B1G and he clearly has some physical talent. Does it help he is from MN, sure but again I can't imagine there are too many kids with his freshman stat line that we wouldnt be happy about here. This year was tougher to watch for Kerwin but new coach and they found a rhythm so I would certainly take my chances. I can almost guarantee you that as a freshman at UNC Stephens, Sutherlin, Loewe, Willis or anyone else we played last year wouldn't put up those numbers so I dont think adding Kerwin would be a step backwards!That's just not true. If it was, he'd likely already have transferred here.
It has been reported before that Walton would not be a high priority for Johnson if he did enter the portal. This board continues to vastly overrate his abilities just because he was once a 4* from MN.
