Jamal Mashburn Jr Enters Transfer Portal

82 0

This one hurts but Jamal Mashburn Jr came to the University of Minnesota because he wanted to play for Richard Pitino. In case you haven’t heard, Pitino Jr isn’t here anymore. So while one might try to live in denial, reality usually has a way of finding you. Thus was the case when news broke this afternoon that Jamal Jr was entering the NCAA transfer portal.



We don’t yet know if Mashburn Jr will pack his bags and take a direct flight to Albuquerque to join Richard, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s the next headline that releases.

Either way, there will now be even more work to do for whoever the next Minnesota Gophers head basketball coach is. Good luck to Jamal Mashburn Jr. That kid has a bright future.
