There's another SEC basketball player with transfer plans drawing interest from USC. According to the Tuscaloosa News, the Gamecocks are one of 27 teams to inquire about 6-9 Justin Knox who plans to transfer from Alabama this summer after graduating in three years.
Because he is graduating with a year of eligiblity remaining, Knox could receive a ruling from the NCAA that will allow him to be eligible next season. The problem for USC is that Alabama has informed Knox that he will not be released to another SEC school or another school witin the university's system including UAB. That decision has incensed the Knox family.
Of course, at this time USC does not have a scholarship to give for the 2010 class. That's also an issue for USC in the case involving 6-7 Ole Miss transfer Murphy Holloway. His first choice would be USC if the Gamecocks had a scholarship and if Ole Miss would release him to USC, a move it is not expected to make.
With USC not an option, Holloway had decided to transfer to Clemson, but he has not yet received his release which will state which schools he can transfer to.
