ESPN mention of Poling (mention of Slipper)

UPDATE: According to Andy Poling's mother, Jenny, three or four schools have already contacted the 6-foot-11 big man about transferring.

Nothing new to report, but I thought EDZ and other mods might like to see the mention.  Also, apparently Polling is getting a look from a few schools, which is nice to hear.

 

"He doesn't know where quite yet. There are about 3-4 schools interested," said Poling's mother. According to the Spokesman Review's Sportslink, Portland State -- in Poling's hometown of Portland -- might be the school where he ends up. PSU is a member of the Big Sky conference and the Vikings could definitely use some size; according to Ken Pomeroy, their average height is 6-foot-3 (279th of all DI teams).

Via Matt Bouldin's Twitter status, slipperstillfits.com wrote yesterday that Andy Poling is leaving Gonzaga, presumably to track down more minutes at another school.

Poling could end up just about anywhere, though it's likely he heads to a smaller school where he's a bigger fish and assured a regular role in the rotation. But what's this mean for the Zags?

It gives them another scholarship for 2010, but while the Bulldogs have just one commit for 2010 and 2011 combined, they also have nine players on their current roster that are freshman or redshirt freshman.

Perhaps Few looks to use a scholarship or two on a JC transfer instead, in order to avoid adding even more inexperience to the program.
