Syracuse Orange men’s basketball forward Quincy Guerrier will transfer from SU while testing the NBA Draft process, he announced via Twitter. Mike McAllister first reported Guerrier’s departure from SU.
Guerrier played two seasons at Syracuse and should he choose to return to the college game, he’d be immediately eligible at his new destination.
“I want to thank Quincy Guerrier for all he has done for our program in the time he has been at Syracuse University. I wish him the best,” Jim Boeheim said via Twitter.
As a sophomore in 2020-21, Guerrier moved into a starting role after coming off the bench in his freshman campaign. He led the Orange in rebounds last season and finished second in scoring, field goal percentage and blocked shots. The Montreal, Quebec, native proved to be an integral piece during Syracuse’s run to the Sweet 16.
Syracuse will have three new players at forward next fall in freshman Benny Williams and transfers Cole Swider and Jimmy Boeheim. Bourama Sidibe and Jesse Edwards return at center to stabilize the front-court.
Guerrier was named to All-ACC Third Team. He averaged 13.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.
