After putting the finishing touches on that post last night about all of the roster movement and subsequently realizing I had forgotten about a few mid-season transfers, I decided a tracker of sorts was necessary for me to keep tracker. And once I started putting it together I figured it made a whole lot of sense to add it to the site and pin it to the message board as well. We’ll keep this updated as we get more 5th year and senior decisions and learn about any more potential transfers.
