Power Taking His Time
Mike Brey loves a good transfer. At Delaware, the former Duke assistant made a habit of collecting other team's castaways and turned the Blue Hens into a big time winner and multi-year NCAA Tournament participant. Accepting transfers is a trend he's continued at Notre Dame (see former Maryland standout Danny Miller).
On Thursday, former Iowa State swingman Shane Power made an unofficial visit to Notre Dame to stop by and chat with Brey.
In addition to the Irish, Power officially visited New Mexico. Starting this weekend, he's hitting the road again. Mississippi State gets a crack at him first. After the Bulldogs bring him in over the weekend, he leaves straight for Pittsburgh on Monday.
Following the Panthers will be the Virginia Cavaliers where Pete Gillen has shown a tendency to favors transfers as well. But wait, there's more. Power says he's also interested in Wisconsin.
For Power, the second time around is a little different and maybe he's a bit wiser. "I will make an informed decision," Power said. "It'll be somewhere that I'll have a good relationship with the people around me; where I can be successful on a successful team."
Currently, Power is comfortable sitting back, taking some trips and weighing his options. "Right now, they are all eye popping opportunities. I'm still confused right now."
He'll sit one season and have two remaining once he picks a new college. However, there is one aspect of Ames that he'll really miss. "The fans," Power said. "They were unbelievable. They showed a kindness to me on and off the court."
