Marquez Haynes announced today that he is transferring. While I'm not surprised, I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping more minutes for Haynes next year would mean more production. After all, he was a pretty solid defender, probably the most athletic member of the team, and showed flashes of offense, especially on drives, alley-oops and the occasional trey. On the other hand, he was a career tease, and could not handle the point, a fact made painfully obvious in the Wake game this year when he commited 34 turnovers in 8 minutes.
The optimist in me thinks that Al Skinner encouraging Haynes to transfer (and I'm sure that's what happened) means he must be pretty confident that some of the incoming freshmen have the ability to come in and play right away in the backcourt.
