Northwestern’s Chris Collins accuses mid-majors of keeping players from transferring

-

It is not unusual to see college basketball players that star at mid-major schools leave and try their hand at the bigger schools across the country. It has cost some coaches their jobs in the past and Northwestern head coach Chris Collins isn’t too happy with what some of the schools are doing now.

He joined the Wildcats’ “Pound the Talk” podcast and spoke about what some of the mid-majors are doing to prevent players from graduate transferring. He was pretty livid about it and questioned if some of these programs are even sure about what college is about anymore.

Here is what he said about the situation:

“And now, what you’re having is — [former Drexel coach] Bruiser Flint lost his job because the best player in his league [Damion Lee], a week before school started, went to Louisville. He lost his job. So you know what’s happening now at all mid-major programs? They don’t let their kids go to summer school. They don’t let them get ahead. They won’t let ‘em graduate. Is that what upper level education is all about? Aren’t we still academic institutions? That want our kids to graduate?”

While nothing has been confirmed about the situation, this could be a pretty serious accusation from Chris Collins. It just proves that some schools are willing to do anything to get ahead, even if it means keeping some of their players from graduating.
