Transfers shake the hierarchy up

While the status quo looks like it will remain the same atop the Tri-Co division standings this season, a number of teams have transfers that could make a huge impact. Elwood Clement of Deptford is just the tip of the iceberg.

Glassboro has 6-foot-2 senior forward Nate Boyd, a transfer from Deptford. Boyd was a starter on the Spartans' South Jersey Group 3 championship team of two seasons ago, and would have been the most experienced player on Deptford's roster.

With Boyd in town, along with Schalick transfer Timmy Breaker, Glassboro should be better than the 2-23 mark it posted in 2006-07.

Also keep an eye out for Salem's Quayshaun Morris, a junior who lived in Salem until the eighth grade and recently returned after a couple of years in Atlanta.

Morris, a 6-3, 175-pound combination guard, can play all five positions on the floor. He'll be an instant asset to a Salem team that also features one of the conference's best inside threats in Derrick Parley.
