I wasn't suggesting that we were...but we don't exactly have a ton of depth

at many key positions and the possibility is very real that we could be on the market for at least one player that could help fill the gap created by these two departures. Since 2017 recruiting is over for the most part, the next best method is to be open to any potential grad transfers who may come to the realization that they can use another year of eligibility somewhere else next year instead of hanging up their cleats.

Taking grad transfers is by no means a negative thing. It's actually quite different than a school taking on JUCO transfers or other transfers who are just unhappy about the direction their college career is going. Grad students in many cases can be relatively solid veteran players that might want a shot at starting in their last year rather than being relegated to a backup on otherwise loaded programs. You do realize that players on the 3-deep at many top-20 programs could very easily start here or many other schools, right? That's not taking someone's leftovers by any means.
