    Ashland gains a trio of Transfers

    According to twitter reports this morning, Ashland has gained three transfers for next season.

    Zander Carter, incoming freshman from Greenup County is now a Tomcat.

    Sean Marcum is 69 and will be a senior while Tyler Marcum is 68 will be a junior. Both Marcum kids are from West Virginia. I do not have any information on them and also their relation.

    I'm hearing there may be another addition as well. Regardless the Tomcats are going to be loaded next season.

    Carter averaged 11 ppg last year as an 8th grader at Greenup. Sean Marcum was the 16th ranked senior in West Virginia going into next year.

    They return three or four starters from this year. With these three additions and possible another one sometime more can be detrimental.

    Are you saying they may have too much talent?

    Who's to say those kids aren't better than the kids coming in?

    Wow!! Ashland is going to be loaded next year. You have to believe after an Elite Eight finish in ‘18-‘19 then a 33-0 season last year that a state championship is in the cards in ‘20-‘21.

    Who told those kids it was theirs to move into?

    You know how it is going to play out, publicized transfers aren’t sitting the bench.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. They're likely going to have to learn an entirely new style of play with a big man in the mix, they may actually regress.

    It’ll be very interesting hearing how Dicky Martin receives this new haul of athletes.

    I remember years ago when he basically crucified Rose Hill for OJ Mayo and his pals.

    I don’t think I minded the Rose Hill transfers then and I don’t mind the Ashland transfers now.

    It’ll be comical though...

    You can’t only be for something when it benefits your team.

    It would be be like me, a UK fan claiming Coach K and Duke were ruining college basketball with all their one and dones ...

    The most talked about "flaw" of Ashland last season (if a team that is 33-0 has a flaw worth talking about) was lack of a inside presence. A 6'9 talented center seems to fit that bill quite nicely.
