TJ Holyfield leaving SFA
Some recent activity I thought I’d share. BMase recently on twitter has followed TJ Holyfield. Also followed recently declared grad transfer Haanif Cheatham who followed BMase back. Cheatham spent 3 years at Marquette averaging around 9 ppg then transferred to FGCU where he averaged 13 PPG before a season ending injury. Cheatham has been granted an additional year of eligibility with a medical waiver. Not saying this means either will be lobos but just recent findings I thought I’d share
Believe he's headed to Champaign-Urbana to play for the Illini.
Going back to playing for Brad Underwood who recruited him to SFA
Makes sense but that program has had a string of bad breaks even after the highly praised hire of Underwood.
Think something will happen this week with Mr Holyfield. The young man has been very social media quiet and the only news to Illinois has been speculation. If he was going to Illinois that decision should have been easy and quick one would think. Why go play one year at Champaign- Urbana for a program that is on a rebuild? This player would make an immediate impact on a contender aka our old friend Brandon Clarke. Mr. Green is a factor in Illinois recruiting though. Lobo followers saw him show at last minute in the Antwan January recruitment.
One might think graduate school at Harvard on the Rio Grande would work. Home cooking and his parents and friends at every game. One can dream.
