Mojo leaving?

Got a couple E-mails and phone calls this evening about Maurice Joseph and his possible transfer from Michigan State and I can confirm that Joseph is gone. The sophomore hasn't found a home yet — though calls already have been placed to former MSU assistants Brian Gregory at Dayton and Doug Wojcik at Tulsa — but both his mother and former youth coach say it's just a matter of time.

"He'll definitely land somewhere that's a quality school and a quality basketball program," said Henry Wong, Joseph's one-time coach. "Mo's got two years left. He wants to make the most of it."

Wong said Joseph's decision comes down to playing time. As much as he's enjoyed his two years at MSU, he'll likely be squeezed out of the rotation next season with the arrival of blue-chip backcourt recruits Kalin Lucas, Chris Allen and Durrell Summers. Wong said Joseph is looking into schools that are "mid-major and higher" and all in the United States.

If something doesn't work out, if Joseph can't find the right fit, there'll be a spot open for him at MSU. But expect him to find a new home by the end of the month.
