Vee Sanford to Transfer from Georgetown

Jeff Goodman of FoxSports is reporting that sophomore Vee Sanford will transfer from Georgetown.  Sanford, a 6'3'' guard originally from Lexington, KY, saw action in 27 games this past season and averaged 2.4 points, and 0.9 rebounds in 6.6 minutes of play a game.

There have always been transfer rumors surrounding Sanford who at times looked to openly sulk while sitting on the bench.  During his limited time on the court, Sanford became a fan favorite for his silky floaters and smooth handle.  He also came into Georgetown with an awesome flat top.  Sanford's lack of playing time has been a point of contention among Hoya fans; some insist that the guard never got a fair chance at a reoccurring spot while others argue that Sanford wasn't a Big East caliber talent.  Personally, I liked watching Sanford play but I'm not smart enough to figure out if five good minutes in garbage time could equate to 30 solid minutes of competitive Big East basketball.  That is the coaching staff's decision and they have plenty of more to go on than I do.

More importantly, the transfer brings Georgetown back to 13 total scholarships for the upcoming season, as they were one above the limit after the commitment of Otto Porter earlier this week.

Unfortunately, the transfer also leaves the Hoyas with a very thin backcourt consisting of senior Jason Clark, sophomore Markel Starks, redshirt freshman Aaron Bowen and incoming freshman Jabril Trawick.  Next season will be very different than the '10-'11 campaign where the Hoyas started experienced three guards.   A point guard now becomes the most important position for the recruiting Class of 2012, which already includes a verbal from big man Brandon Bolden.  The Hoyas have recently been mentioned with guards Semaj Christon and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera.

No word yet on where Sanford is heading but as we always end here on Casual Hoya: he was a good kid and we wish him well.  [Cue applause; Roll credits]
