We're going to look at this as a positive; it's a win-win. It frees up a scholarship for Kentucky to go recruiting, and it gives Adam a chance to try to get on the floor.

He's chosen to transfer from one of the most prestigious programs in the U.S.. Tubby strongly emphasized he wanted Adam to stay in the program. There's no better place in my mind to go than Marshall University. Adam made his own choice.

There's no way we'll make any kind of decision until we sit down eye-to-eye with coach Smith. That's the only right way to do it. At this point Adam is still at Kentucky, but it's an open deal. We'll see where Adam's heart is and what coach Smith thinks. It will be a very respectful meeting.
