Byron Wesley’s transfer a year ago would be perfectly normal. Roster overhauls always occur when a new coach takes over. Washington State’s already lost a couple players since Ernie Kent took over.
But he was USC’s leading scorer this season and his departure shows a lack of trust between him and Andy Enfield after a full season together. It’s been a year since Enfield was hired and one could ask where are the elite recruits that were supposedly going to come with his hire?
USC was a favorite with Jordan McLaughlin before Enfield got hired. Even Malik Price-Martin and his father were strongly considering USC beforehand. There was a lot of excitement a year ago about USC’s basketball future and right now it seems to all rest on transfers from other schools that may or may not pan out and some incoming guys that were easy gets from Day 1.
