Texas Tech PG Javarez Willis announced last night via Twitter that he is set to transfer to Ohio University:
Just signed with Ohio University! Happy to be a part of the family #Bobcats— Javarez Bean Willis (@BALL_LIF3) May 4, 2012
Attrition is an ugly word sometimes and it's something that happens in college athletics and it's not pretty. It's part of the game and right now, off of last year's roster, SF Cameron Forte left during the Christmas break and SF Jaron Nash announced his transfer earlier this spring. As we review the numbers again, there are nine signees, one that supposedly that will not qualify (Michael Carey) and one that will pay his own way, which means there are seven scholarships available. That means only six of the following scholarship players will remain on next year's roster: Kevin Wagner, Deshon Minnis, Toddrick Gotcher, Ty Nurse, Terran Petteway, Jaye Crockett, Jordan Tolbert, Kader Tapsoba and Dejan Kravic.
Good luck Javarez and thank you for your time at Texas Tech.
