The transfer portal is something that should not be public knowledge but the coaches are giving access to writers and it's turned into a debacle. Good on him for getting ahead of it whether or not he decides to transfer.
I don't think this would necessarily be a bad idea for the program but I don't know if Hill wants to roll the dice on being a backup. Tommy has 3 years of eligibility left and is the clear cut starter next year. I think bringing on an upperclassman would be great to have depth but it's going to have to be the right kind of kid.
