New, comment

Xavier just landed Kerem Kanter, but Brady Ernst has departed before he ever actually arrived.

With the news that Xavier landed a commitment from Kerem Kanter came some other news that seems, at least on its face, to be related.

Brady Ernst, a 6-8 power forward from Indian Hills CC re-opened his recruitment at around 6pm tonight. In this season at IHCC he averaged 9.4/6.5/0.4 on .637/.000/.726 shooting. The 6’10”, 230-pound post would have had three years of eligibility remaining when he got to Xavier, but now will take that elsewhere.

That reopens one of Xavier’s scholarship slots for this year, with Bluiett and Kanter’s decisions regarding the draft also potentially impacting that number. Just as soon as Xavier was out of the transfer market, they are right back into it.
