And the off-season changes to the Boston College Men’s basketball team are beginning to take shape. In an article reported yesterday by Sports Illustrated, Sophomore Chris Herren Jr. announced that he will be entering the transfer portal and looking to take his collegiate basketball career elsewhere.
This past year was certainly a down year for Herren as his playing time certainly dwindled from his Freshman year. He only saw the floor in 18 games and averaged 8.7 MPG. Even with his time on the floor, he did not exactly appear to be a strong asset for the team on both sides of the ball. He finished last season shooting 24% from the field, 1.7 PPG, 0.3 AST and 0.6 TO per game which is a lot considering how many few minutes he played. Most of this had to do with his play being overshadowed by the talented incoming Freshman guard Jay Heath and the additional playing time given to grad transfer Derryk Thornton. Thus, it is not all that surprising to see him potentially leave the Heights. With that said, we wish Herren the best of luck as he continues his college basketball campaign!
