We wrote recently that guard Four McGlynn might be transferring from Vermont. Although the offensively-talented guard has asked for his release, Vermont has a week to decide whether McGlynn should be granted a release, so more destinations should begin to surface within seven days. However, some interesting news has come to light regarding why McGlynn wants to leave the America East program.
Speaking to the York Daily Record, McGlynn's father stated the guard wanted to play at a college closer to home. While that may be one of the guard's underlying factors, one source says another factor is the desire to play at a much-higher level than Vermont; there is the thought that McGlynn, who only used 60 percent of Vermont's minutes this past season but attempted 30.1 percent of the squad's shots, should be playing at a school in the mid-or-high-major ranks.
As we previously stated, McGlynn has not yet obtained his release from the Catamounts, so the number of schools that could be transfer destinations is understandably small. One option, though, to consider is George Washington. The Colonials are in the Atlantic 10, a conference that has long ago shed the 'mid-major' label and is consistently one of the top conferences in the nation. Before leaving for GW, coach Mike Lonergan recruited McGlynn to Burlington, and a source notes it would not be surprising if GW tries to land the guard. We must point out that it is not clear what schools might be restricted in the terms of McGlynn's release; if the Colonials are barred, this situation will change.
We will continue to monitor any news about McGlynn's transfer, and also if the release becomes official, what schools might be restricted.
