You'd have to think it helps that his brother Jacob Hazzard has already played under coach Miller.

Would he consider walking on as well?  I love the family connection & hope that he'd consider it a possibility.

I can't envision playing time for a scholarship player that has 2.1 assists per game; we have plenty of those guards/wings on the roster.

Hope we land him, the kid proved he can shoot and you can never have too many guys who can hit the three.

UMM you guys clearly haven't watched him, 20 minutes backup guard is his floor, the question is whether he'll go to a place he probably won't start

With Jamie Dickson going UCLA, Hazzard would be a news worthy legacy get.

Sometimes that is not the end all, be all.
It is easy to make that assumption, but we have no clue what he is looking for, or why he is even leaving UC Irvine, which has been known to have been a very good program, to start over somewhere else.

Sorry, but I don't see where a career 1.37 A:TO (in a bad conference) guard can fit in. 

His shot is nice, but would you prefer that he takes away Josh Green's minutes?  B-Will?  Doutrive?  Armstrong?

We have plenty of shooters.  Barcello's defensive presence in limited minutes likely has more upside than bringing in a transfer (again).

Don't get me wrong, I won't be upset if Hazzard transfers in...but the existing kids on our roster will.  I don't want any more animosity within the locker room.

All I was trying to get at, he could transfer in and not do much of anything.
Zach Peters is a very good example of someone who transferred in, played sparingly and we eventually knew he was not good enough and was not going to play.

I do not see Hazzard coming in and doing anything better than any of the guards we have on the roster right now.
I believe this was done in case we lost a player that was our shooter and we were in the market for a shooter to come off the bench.

you guys are just looking at stats, watch this guy live and yes I would prefer he play over doutrive and barcello, he gives us another ball handler who can get to the basket every now and then, average defender and great shooter (which is a huge need) and betting on bwill being healthy is risky, nico will have enough minutes and josh and terry will play the 3

Is this under the assumption that Randolph is leaving?  If not, I assumed he would share duties at the 3 with Armstrong while B-Will, Green and Barcello were at the SG position.

Either way, we have a lot of talent at the wing.
