Following a tumultuous season, the Boston College Eagles are losing a key bench player. Jeff Goodman of ESPN confirmed BCI and other media outlet reports that freshman guard Matt Milon will be transferring out of the BC program.

The loss of Milon takes away some depth from the BC lineup. Milon was a reliable threat from behind the arc. Milon was a key player in a 69-56 win against Harvard. Milon also posted 25 points in a Valentine's Day matchup against Syracuse. Milon was BC's sixth highest score, with 5.4 points per game.
Milon is the second player to have been rumored to be transferring from the program. Idy Diallo was rumored to be looking to transfer, though he was never reported to have come back to the coaching staff to ask for a release.
