By the way, the only two players on this list that are transfers are Palmer and Copeland.  All the rest are playing for the team that recruited them out of high school.


If Miles has been successful at one thing over anything else, it's assimilating transfers into the framework of the NU team concept, and, in the process, allowing the ballers to ball out.
