Not much transfer news the last few days, but still some significant updates. San Jose State’s Richard Washington has been suspended for the season by the NCAA. Washington declared for the NBA Draft but then withdrew, but he had signed with an agent who was not certified, as well as accepted money for playing in a 3×3 event. Washington averaged 19.5 ppg last season for San Jose, and while he is still enrolled as a student he is not listed on the team roster.
Dealing with legal issues are Mason Gillis (Purdue) who will be suspended for the first four regular season games as well as exhibition games after being given probation for an Operating While Intoxicated charge. Gillis started 23 of 28 games last season while averaging 5.2 ppg. Just this past week Washington State’s Noah Williams had an altercation with bouncers at a bar and faces possible misdemeanor charges. Williams averaged 14.1 ppg while starting all 27 games last season.
Announcing transfer destinations were Austin Sacks (Santa Clara to Baylor), Hugo Clarkin (San Jose State to Sacramento State), and John Hall (Portland State to UMass Lowell).
