Camron Reece

Recommended Posts

This one surprises me. I was disappointed in how little Cam improved this season, but I saw him as an important veteran presence next year. Hopefully this means that he saw the writing on the wall and the young guys were going to overtake him in the depth chart.

I think we were all anticipating him leaving via graduation - staff probably didn't have room for him and he doesn't want to hang em up yet. Good for Cam

I would guess this means that UA isn't offering seniors an extra year on scholarship.  I believe that I read that while the extra year is "available," the school would have to pay for the extra scholarships out of the general fund.  Cam would've been a good one to have back.

offering all* seniors

 

I don't know if it's a money issue moreso than the scholarship limit - guys are coming in on scholarship, guys that were on scholarship have to leave. One way or another

Always seemed like a nice happy go lucky kid and a good teammate.  I assumed he was not returning.  I wish him luck.  That being said, he's exactly the same player that arrived on campus two seasons ago and not one that will be missed significantly on the floor, especially if Bandaogo and Salle develop.

I thought I had read that teams can go over the limit for next year, but the scholarships had to be paid by the university general fund.  I may be 100% incorrect.  

 

Either way, wish Cam best of luck.  He certainly provided energy and some huge momentum swings with his patented two-hand slams.  I'm happy for him if he gets another year, as long as it's not in the MAC.

You were 100% correct.  I was curious about this issue and found the answer.  The Zips could keep the seniors on scholarship but the school would have to fund the extra scholarships.  Based on what we are seeing and Akron's financial situation, I do not believe Akron is willing to fund the added scholarships.  Also, I could see this being a problem if you are an incoming frosh and find out that a senior is staying and playing an extra year it may change how you feel about playing for that school.  Here is a link to the article https://www.ncsasports.org/coronavirus-sports/ncaa-eligibility-coronavirus

Just saw Cincy has six players in the transfer portal. This is gonna be a wild off-season. I have faith Groce can improve this squad.

does anyone know when we will start seeing moves into or out of the transfer portal?  surprised it's only Reece from Akron.  also. not many from the MAC in the portal.  There's a shooting guard from Duke who is available :)

Unfortunately you should also see Jermaine Marshall's name in the portal.
