There will be familiar faces in new places this upcoming season. I have been hearing noise since the end of last season about certain players transferring to a different high school to begin the 2019 season.
I have contacted a long list of players to get confirmation on if the rumors are true. It took a minute for some of the players to confirm their next destination.
But, I’m here now with a long list of transfers.
Here’s what I have so far:
Anterrio Jeffries: The senior forward was at Melrose last season. He will spend his final year of high school at Overton.
Avionne Suttle: The junior guard is coming off a Class AA Championship season at Wooddale. Joining 2021 guard/forward Alex Anderson at Tipton-Rosemark Academy was once his first option. Now, a change of heart will have Suttle at Overton.
