Understandably we wouldn't be included in an OVC transfers thread anymore, but Peyton Broughton is going to graduate transfer from EKU.  He's been with the program four years, but he sat out 2019-2020 with an injury and thus has two years of eligibility remaining with the COVID bonus year.  He was a good signee for us, but the combination of the injury and Cooper Robb transferring in really limited his court time this past season.  

Russhard Cruickshank, Jacquess Hobbs, and Cameron Carmical also went through senior night ceremonies.  I'll be interested to see if any more them return either to EKU our elsewhere.  With the departure of Broughton, Hobbs would be the last Dan McHale player remaining on the roster if he came back, but he doesn't figure to get a ton of minutes playing behind Wendell Green, Jr.
