Earlier this offseason, the Big East Conference received surprising college basketball transfer news.

Marquette's No. 2 and No. 3 leading scorers announced their plans to transfer from the program following the spring semester. Brothers Sam and Joey Hauser, freshman and junior forwards, respectively, are leaving the school.

The news shocked the college basketball world, considering Marquette is being listed as a top 10 team in most of the preseason top 25 polls.

Just a few weeks after the transfer news was announced, Joey Hauser broke down their potential transfer destinations.

The Hauser brothers reportedly plan to visit Iowa, Michigan State, Wisconsin and Virginia, according to a report from college basketball insider Jon Rothstein.

Sam Hauser is a 6-foot-8 forward with one season of eligibility left. He averaged 14.9 points and 7.2 rebounds a game in 2018-19.

Joey Hauser is a 6-foot-9 forward with one season of eligibility left. He averaged 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds a game last season.

Marquette fans likely thought they would be a top-10 program heading into the 2019-20 season. Star point guard Markus Howard announced his return for his senior season.

Howard finished the 2018-19 season as one of the top point guards in the country. His return sparked talk of the Golden Eagles as a potential top-five team.

However, the Hauser brothers had other ideas.

Stay tuned for the latest.
