Players deciding to transfer have been a storyline for all four college basketball team in the area.
The transfer parade started in Morgantown when former four-star Kennedy Catholic center Oscar Tshiebwe announced in January that he was leaving West Virginia. The 6-foot-9 center was coming off a freshman season in which he averaged 11.2 points and 9.3 rebounds. After flirting with entering the 2021 NBA Draft, Tshiebwe returned to West Virginia but wasn’t the same player and after seeing his production and minutes drop, he made the decision to transfer. Tshiebwe has since enrolled to play for John Calipari at Kentucky.
The next player to leave was Duquesne point guard Sincere Carry, which caught many people off guard. Carry decided to leave the Dukes program after being being unhappy and after having clashes with the Duquesne staff. Shortly after the decision, Carry joined the Kent State program.
Senior forward A.J. Bramah helped lead the Robert Morris Colonials to the NEC conference championship and a spot in the 2020 NCAA Tournament but things changed a year later. After enduring a year of losing and many stops and starts to their season because of COVID-19, Braham entered the transfer portal last week and is currently talking with many high major programs.
The final transfers happened over the last couple of days as junior point guard Xavier Johnson and junior swingman Au’Diese Toney both decided to leave Pitt because of unhappiness.
