It appears that Sestina is indeed planning to grad transfer.

Good find. I do not think that we are surprised. Does anybody have a link to the official NCAA transfer list? Is there one?

Except that Bucknell made Sestina, essentially, an unrestricted free agent.

If I were him I'd look for a pro contract in Europe rather than playing another year of college elsewhere. Still have not seen confirmation from any other sources. Are we sure this isn't just speculation?

I guess I feel the opposite. I’d play another year and work toward my masters and then play overseas. I guess it matters if you think you might want to use your education after your few years of playing are over.

I don't know where that Twitter info came from, but Nate is still deciding his future after Bucknell

Evan Daniels tweeted that he indicated he intends to transfer or pursue professional options in an interview.

i assume he entered his name in the transfer portal in order to begin exploring the transfer options and others picked up on that and are erroneously assuming he will definitely do a transfer year somewhere.

Agreed. Even if he was 90% sure he wants to play overseas, he should enter his name in the portal to see what other options might be available to him. He has worked hard to get himself into an enviable position, and I am certain he will do what he thinks is best for him.

Seems like he’s a shoe in to play at a high major. Kentucky will need to replace Reid Travis (another grad transfer) and PJ Washington. Really he should go to UNC. They need to replace Luke Maye who is the same kind of player and Roy Williams love Sestina in his post game press conference after the UNC-Bucknell game

Former Holy Cross coach and current Pittsburgh assistant coach Milan Brown reached out to Nate according to this.

UNC has 4 PF coming in for next year's class so they have no need for a big man

How do you all think the Kansas faithful would welcome Nate to their team, being a Bucknell grad? 🤣

Not really sure where you’re getting that info from but that’s not true. They have bacots coming in who’s 6’10. But the only other serviceable big men they would have is Garrison Brooks. They have Sterling Manley and Brandon Huffman on the roster but they barely play and will barely play next year. They just simply don’t have anyone to replace Maye.

I mean I’m not saying he’s going to UNC but there’s a fit there. Kentucky wouldn’t be a bad fit either. They’ll need to replace Reid Travis and PJ Washington. He definitely have a lot of choices though.

Muscala and McCollum had no problem going pro from the PL. I don’t understand the difference btw playing 32 games in the PL vs the SEC being such an overwhelming distinction in terms of development or exposure. NBA/European scouts don’t need a kid to be on ESPN 2-3x a week to draw conclusions about how he projects. So I guess the 8 months of course work in ES/CL or Edu is the shiny object. For a kid that’s often played the military card so publicly he should try some introspection and he can start his Masters in Education by taking out Webster’s and brushing up on the word “loyalty”. I’ll await the avalanche of negative responses to my post but if he wants to make a run at “a couple” NCAA games he should shoulder that responsibility out of Sojka and if he wants to improve his defense he should work on stopping Ivanauskas. I’m sorry guys but I just don’t get it...where I come from loyalty’s a two way street.

I suspect he would have had Bucknell let him. Am I missing something or are you?

You are assuming that he in fact did have the opportunity to do another year st Bucknell. From what I understand, thst’s Not necessarily so.
