The transfer portal is in full swing in college basketball, and one of the most-watched stories in the early going surrounds former TCU big man Eddie Lampkin.

Hours after Ed Cooley left Providence for the head coaching job at Georgetown, it was reported that the former TCU player was joining Cooley in D.C. However, Lampkin took to Twitter on Monday night and refuted that report, saying he’s still, “100% uncommitted.”

 

Lampkin entered the transfer portal last week a week after he did not join the team for the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City. Shortly after his no-show in KC, rumors of alleged mistreatment in the program started to circle from Lampkin’s camp.

At 6-11, and averaging 6.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, Lampkin will land on his feet given his raw talent and size. But reaching his potential on a consistent basis remains something that has not yet happened for the big man.

 

In 12 seasons with the Friars, Ed Cooley won the Big East conference tournament in 2014, which led to the program’s second tournament title in its history. This season, Providence started 14-3 overall and 6-0 in conference play before struggling down the stretch and resulted in a first-round NCAA tournament loss to Kentucky.

TCU’s season came to an end on Sunday night in a loss to Gonzaga in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
