They'd be much better off letting him sit the bench (T. Beckham) than cutting him loose. Unless he just wants to go on his own accord.
Harrow is going to be pushed to the bench regardless, especially with Andrew Harrison coming in next year.
This is one of the weakest overall classes I can remember though. Outside of Shabazz and Noel, there really wasn't the impact freshmen in this years class. Should speak volumes when Cal decided Ryan Harrow, who wasn't a fit in any way for his system, was a better option than any of the incoming PG's.
Poythress, Goodwin, and WCS are true freshmen. They have AAU experience, but are used to dominating on the high school circuit. Players like Andrew Wiggins (Huntington Prep) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (St Patricks) are more likely to come in and make an impact than someone who went to a true high school.
Poythress and Goodwin both could stand to benefit from another year, but I think they will take the easy way out and go pro instead of coming back and fighting for playing time in a loaded recruiting class. Wiltjer though I think is a spark plug off the bench and nothing more. Asking him to transfer though is a bit much IMO, especially when he could be a valuable asset next season.
