AUBURN -- The Auburn basketball team is down another man after reserve forward Joey Cameron became the latest player to leave the program.

Cameron said Wednesday that he had been granted a release to transfer to any school outside of the SEC. Auburn did not officially confirm Cameron's departure.

Murray State needs to decide on a Head Coach soon so the Racers can try to attract such a player to come for a visit...Cameron wants to be around horses and playing time! The equation is simple...Horse Farm+playing time= Cameron!!! Its a situation for Murray State and Cameron...something to think about while Murray waits for a new coach.


I was wondering that when I team is in search of a new coach that AD's were able
to recruit players to their program...

If Darren is gone...then who is trying to keep in touch with our current recruits.
If they are allowed to contact them, shouldn't they be allowed to continue on the recruiting as well.

If so, maybe they should try to recruit Cameron.


AD's can recruit but players normally have a certain system/style they understand and want to play in that system. So we need a Head Coach first to get the athlete to want to come for a visit and talk with the coach about what type of tempo the team will play on the court. And it helps to know if the coach is offense or defense minded...these little things play a huge role in recruiting the right player. What Murray State is missing right now as a mid-major progam is an identity!!!
