The University of Vermont men's basketball team is confirming that McGlynn put in his request for a release from his national letter of intent this morning. The school has seven business days to grant the request or deny it. McGlynn is the reigning America East rookie of the year. He led the team in scoring, averaging twelve points a game. McGlynn was the only player in the country at a Division One school to lead his team in scoring while never starting a game.
Vermont is coming off one of it's most successful seasons and McGlynn played a key role. The Cats went 24-12, won the America East tournament, qualified for the NCAA Tournament and won the second NCAA game in program history with it's 71-59 victory over Lamar. McGlynn played some of his best ball on the biggest stages, scoring 14 points in the Cats conference championship win at Stony Brook and a team high 18 in the win over Lamar.
With the graduation of fellow leading scorer Matt Glass, McGlynn figured to be the go-to option on a young Vermont club that will have just one senior. If he does leave, he will be the fourth Catamount to leave the program since the end of the season. Ryan McKeaney and Chris Santo, who saw very little playing time, both were granted transfer requests, while junior Brendan Bald decided to quit playing basketball to focus on his academics. It is unlikely that the school will deny McGlynn's request since it could damage their ability to recruit other top players in the future.
