Let's see. Zach Lewis was dismissed from his high school team in 2012. After his sophomore season at CC in 2015 he transferred to UMass to seek a higher level of competition. After playing one season there he transferred to Iona (to seek a lower level of competition?). Kassius Robertson had a solid career at CC.He red shirted in his freshman year to develop as a player. He went on to a very productive playing career as a Griff. He also graduated. He had one year of eligibility left and chose to use at the University of Missouri, where he had another solid season as a graduate transfer. That's what quite a number of athletes do these days when NCAA rules allow transfer without sitting out a year to students who have received their degree and have eligibility remaining. A couple of UB football players chose to do that recently. As to Isaiah Reese something beyond playing college basketball seems to have been a factor in his situation. These three case you cite are all different from each other, these things happen at other schools also. CC can be proud of the many highly accomplished basketball players who had full and fulfilling careers on the court and in the classroom. Take a look around the Hall of Fame area at KAC and you'll see some of them. The sky is not falling.

What role should a coach have in retaining their student-athletes?
