Not looking to bash any players. One of my rules is not to criticize Student Athletes unless they do something to embarrass the Tulane brand. I attack Coaches and Administrators who are collecting paychecks.Since we are bashing players, I would have rather gotten rid of other players before Henson. If we needed a spot open for a transfer center, then I probably would have looked at the center position for the swap. That would be a direct increase in talent over what we had. Just saying.Henson, like most of Conroy's recruits prior to this year, would have been a good player at The Citadel.
The fact is, suddenly, Conroy has had some sort of revelation and something has happened to change Basketball recruiting. I wouldn't have had any problem with Henson staying, completing his eligibility and graduating. Was it 100% his decision to transfer or was it encouraged by the coaching staff. Two years ago half the roster transferred including the two best players. Conroy replaced the defections with everyone's leftovers. This time around the roster purge is allowing great talent into the program. The 2015 class is now arguably the best basketball signing class in school history.
