Too bad. I really liked Unique and thought he started to find his game toward the end of the season. It'd be good to have his experience next year.

Unique's a good frickin kid. He will FOREVER be remembered and featured in UMass highlights for his dunks, especially that out of bounds play. Wish him the best and will be folliwing his post UMass career.

Graduating in 3 years while playing D1 hoops for two of those years. Good for him. Two years left of eligibility, getting out while he can and he'll find a great spot to land.

Hate to see him go but wish him the best. He had pride in the program and always played hard.

I'm happy for Unique. He must have worked his tail off to graduate in such a short amount of time and will get another chance to find a school that's a fit basketball-wise. I hope he sees plenty of playing time wherever he lands, works on his jump shot, and fires off some show stopping dunks.

I'm also happy for the guys that leave with a degree in hand, even if it's to play at another school.

A quality kid who I hope lands a spot at a good graduate program and a chance for 2 good years of hoops. We'll be watching, Unique.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Have we seen anything further on Unique? He's the last of our outgoing transfers who hasn't announced a landing spot.

His "Just wanna hoop" tweet on the 3rd sounds like he hadn't found one.

Rothstein said this a couple weeks ago:
McLean tells me he's currently visiting North Carolina A&T. Also plans to visit Texas Southern.

Go D2. Who cares what division you play, go where you'll be most effective and happy.

I agree R2L. Not saying he should definitely go D2, but go where you're happy and will get time. Kid will be a favorite wherever he goes. Good kid

Chris Baldwin is at Texas Southern so there's a connection if Unique ends up there.

Unique is transferring to St. Francis (NY) in the NEC conference.
