Coppin State is the latest victim in the MEAC transfer saga. Guard Christian Kessee is transfering from the Baltimore school, per his Twitter account.
Wanna thank @CSUCoachGrant @CoachMcRoy Coach Morton & all of the athletic department for the opportunity I was given. Looking for a new home

Coppin State is the second MEAC school to lose its leading scorer as guard Malcolm Bernard announced he would transfer earlier this month.

It would be foolish to transfer to a DII school as a grad transfer. Pretty sure he will transfer to another DI team that has a chance to make the NCAA tournament. At least he is on pace to graduate from CSU.

Not like he's gonna make the NBA anyway…And he has a chance to make the NCAA Tourney with Coppin…is riding the pine at another school any better?

Jermaine Rutley who left FAMU to attend UALR thought it was better. He rode the bench and was a member of a mid-major team who upset Purdue. Dude who transferred from Hampton to Hofstra last year thought so as well. Some of these guys seem to believe transferring to a competitive mid-major PWI is the right move as a transfer. I do not, but for some reason that is the move these days.
Kessee is not going to the league more than likely. Coppin was trash last year, but if you say the Eagles have a chance to make the 2017 NCAA Tournament I will take your word for it. I do not know the ins and outs of the CSU program.
