Korie Lucious To Transfer To Iowa State Or Marquette?

When Korie Lucious was dismissed from the Michigan State basketball program, the interesting thing in the press release was that it said the dismissal was for the remainder of the season, not for good. Reading between the lines, the impression was that the door to return next season might be open for Lucious; he was just done for the 2010-11 season.

The day after the news broke about his dismissal, Lucious' mother said that her son would be transferring to a new school, much like Chris Allen did after being dismissed last summer. As it turns out, Lucious may do exactly the same thing as Allen.

Lucious not only made it pretty clear over the weekend that he intends to transfer, but the first school he visited was Iowa State, which is where Allen ended up transferring. Lucious visited the program over the weekend and got a chance to catch up with Allen, as well as Diante Garrett, who, like Lucious, is from Milwaukee.

Although Iowa State would seem to be the favorite based on his connections to the program, Lucious still plans on visiting Marquette, his hometown school. After he takes that visit, Lucious said that he will decide "in a couple weeks." Based on his comments it doesn't seem returning to Michigan State is even an option at this point, so it looks as though Lucious will be a Cyclone or a Golden Eagle come this time next month.
