Corey Chandler has issued a statement regarding the news I broke that he would transfer after the season.
“I am proud to be at Rutgers,” he said in the statement. “Earlier this week, I vented my frustrations after a tough loss, in a private phone call. I apologize to Coach Hill, the coaching staff and my teammates for the distraction it created. I look forward to remaining a Scarlet Knight and doing whatever I can to help the team win.”
My understanding is that Chandler will make a final decision whether or not to transfer after the season ends, which likely will be next week during the Big East Tournament. We still think he ends up leaving.
