Agreed - congrats to Evan. Heard he had his choice of top 25 school. Hope this works out for him.

I wonder if this will become the new normal, or at least *a* new normal in Ivy sports, especially men's basketball.

The Ivies get many of our best athletes, especially male athletes, when they something happens to them in their junior or senior years -- say, an injury -- and the high major programs get scared off. That's just one scenario of course but it's an example of how excellent athletes fall into our lap when we otherwise might not expect to land them.

How many of them will live up to their original potential and then realize that they are playing in a conference or program which is "beneath" them, especially if they have a realistic shot at a pro career?

Will more guys simply take off their senior years at an Ivy, get their valuable degree on schedule and then finish one (or two) final years of eligibility at a high major? It's like our downscale version of "one and done." In the Ivies, it might be "two on, two off, then done elsewhere."
