Sounds like nobody's transferring

Per the DMR story about the awards banquet:

McCaffery said he had postseason discussions with each of his players and there were “no issues at all” related to potential transfers.

While it's fair to say Fran probably wouldn't break any news about this at an awards banquet, it sounds pretty set that everybody is returning. Internet scuttlebutt is that Christian Williams has decided to return. Dale Jones will not be back. Only question is what Conner plans to do next year:

As for his oldest son, who also intends to play baseball at Iowa, McCaffery said his status remains unchanged, but that he expects a final decision soon about what the next year holds for Connor.

IMO, this is great news, and damn exciting. The fact that everybody wants to return to compete for minutes on a fairly stacked team, to me, means they like playing together and believe that they can accomplish great things, and they're willing to accept whatever role Fran gives them to achieve those things. Maybe that's just me reading into this. But holy shit, we're probably gonna have 14 really good players next year.
