Head coach Rod Carey confirmed Bags’ departure during his Monday press conference.  Carey cited that Bags’ and his mother have decided to move from their Staten Island home.  OwlsDaily.com’s Shawn Pastor confirmed the decision was based on a move.

The 6’3, 300-pound former three-star recruit originally committed to Rutgers University under Chris Ash however chose not to sign with the Scarlet Knights after Greg Schiano returned to Piscataway.  Bags is considered a true freshman thanks to the NCAA’s COVID-19 playing policy and is eligible for a red shirt this season because he played less than four games.  He will have four-years of eligibility remaining.
