With the lack of big man recruiting, I wonder if Pat is thinking the undergrad transfer route again. Did it with Dickerson and Pierce. Maybe Pat things is a more sure thing and better move to get grad transfer centers in as at least know a little what you get versus going for projects.
I cannot see a senior grad transfer for next year, chemistry would be tough. There is obviously a really good 8 man rotation right now and Pierce gets added as #9 for big man fouls/minutes. And Bostick would fight for #10.
If a grad transfer comes in, that means stealing minutes from somebody that has played a ton this year and that could really screw with the chemistry. PSU has not gaping hole in 2017 in the line-up that grad transfer would fill without causing issues.
