BC Men's Basketball Reportedly Active in Transfer Portal
Boston College men's basketball looks to still be in the market to solidify their lineup, according to reports. Harvard forward Danilo Djuricic and Yale forward Paul Atkinson have both been apparently contacted by Boston College with interest. Both players are graduate transfers and would be eligible immediately for the Eagles. Their decision to leave might have been caused by reports that the Ivy League, and Harvard in particular, might cancel their upcoming seasons due to COVID-19.
Djuricic, a 6'8 graduate transfer from Canada, was more of a role player last year for the Crimson. Averaging 20 minutes a game, he also put in 6.1 ppg, and 4.3 rpg, and is a solid rebounder. Atkinson, a 6'10 power forward, is going to be an even more coveted transfer. He was the Ivy League Co-Player of the Year in '19-20, and averaged 17.6 points per game, along with 7.3 points per game. His list of potential teams is massive and includes Tennessee, Stanford, Kansas, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, NC State, and Xavier.
Both players would not be eligible until next season, as the semester has already begun. Atkinson is set to graduate this spring from Yale. "With that, I will be graduating from Yale this upcoming spring and entering the transfer portal with a year of eligibility remaining, " he wrote on Twitter.
