Walk-On Guard K.J. Marshall Transfers from Pitt



Pitt guard K.J. Marshall will transfer to Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas, his new coach announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Marshall, a 5-foot-10 guard, walked on at Pitt during his true freshman season for 2019-20 and played sparingly as a reserve. In six games, Marshall played nine minutes and scored two points.

Marshall’s path to playing time at point guard was blocked by returning starter Xavier Johnson, incoming freshman Femi Odukale and the play of fellow walk-on Onye Ezeakudo, who played in 12 games early last season before suffering an injury.

A Reading, Pa., native, Marshall came to Pitt by way of Trinity Christian Academy in Fayetteville, North Carolina, choosing to walk on with the Panthers over low-level Division I and Division II offers.

After spending his sophomore season at Garden City, Marshall will be able to transfer to a Division I or II institution with two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Marshall is the fifth player to leave Pitt with eligibility remaining following the 2019-20 season, joining shooting guards Trey McGowens and Ryan Murphy and forwards Kene Chukwuka and Samson George.
