Duquesne Guard Leon Ayers III Enters Transfer Portal



On Wednesday night, Duquesne guard Leon Ayers III entered the transfer portal after one season with the program.

Ayers appeared in 27 games for Keith Dambrot’s squad this year, averaging 10 points per contest and grabbing a career-high four rebounds per game. Ayers started 14 of those games for Duquesne, hitting 37% of his field goals and 27% of his three-point attempts.

The 6-foot-6 guard came to Duquesne after two seasons at Henry Ford (JuCo) and one season at Mercer. At Mercer, he set career highs in points per game (12.2), field-goal percentage (52%), and three-point percentage (39%).

The Dukes have now lost Ayers, Jackie Johnson III and Primo Spears, the team’s three highest-scoring guards from last season, to the portal.

However, Dambrot has a solid class of newcomers coming into the program this offseason, adding JuCo guard Quincy McGriff, forward Abdou Halil-Barre, forward David Dixon, guard Kareem Rozier, forward Matus Hronsky, and transfer guard Tre Clark.

I got a question for those who know,how many times can you enter the transfer portal I was under the assumption you could do it once without sitting out the year

The portal is a joke, this guy has played at 3 schools in three years now on to the fourth, start penalizing these guys.
