Graduate transfers, seniors that are eligible to play immediately, have become the next big thing in college basketball recruiting, and the market just added a major target.
Anthony Lee, a 6-foot-8 forward that finished his junior season at Temple averaging 13.6 points and 8.6 boards, is transferring out of the program.
The news was first reported by ESPN.com.
Because of his ability and the fact that he will be eligible to play right away, expect a number of high-profile programs to get involved with him. Temple finished the 2013-2014 season 9-22.
With Louisville leaving the conference, the AAC needs Temple to be relevant nationally. With Lee leaving and Dalton Pepper graduating, that 9-22 team will be heading into next season without two of their top four scorers.
