Detroit Mercy basketball lands five transfers, from three countries


Detroit — Detroit Mercy apparently has its own transfer portal.

The school’s men’s basketball programs announced five new recruits, all transfers, from three countries, for its 2020-21 class — with Mike Davis entering his third season as head coach.

They are guard Marquell Fraser (Hill Academy, Idaho), guard Matt Johnson (St. Bonaventure), forward Bul Kuol (Cal Baptist), forward Taurean Thompson (Seton Hall) and forward Noah Waterman (Niagara).

Fraser, Kuol and Thompson are graduate transfers and, thus, immediately eligible, while Waterman, a redshirt freshman, and Johnson, a senior, are seeking waivers from the NCAA to play right away. That process remains in the NCAA’s hands.

“This class gives us a lot of talent in the areas that we were lacking and is really our first recruiting class where we had the time and no circumstances to deal with,” Davis said in a statement. “We should be more athletic and long and better both defensively and offensively with a lot of guys that can shoot, score and handle the basketball.”
