Amir Garrett Announces Intent to Transfer

Sophomore Amir Garrett announced through Twitter that he will look to transfer from St. John’s before next fall.

“After a long thought out process of speaking with my family, I will be leaving St. John’s Basketball Program,” Garrett said in a series of tweets. “It was a well thought out decision that didn’t just pop out of nowhere. St. John’s will always have a special place in my heart.”

Garrett averaged 6.4 points per game in 55 games with the Red Storm. He joined the Johnnies in December of 2011 after being declared academically ineligible at the beginning of the 2011-12 academic year. This season, Garrett saw his playing time decrease from 26.9 minutes per game to 20.4 as he averaged 5.5 points per game.

The player’s transfer opens one scholarship spot on a roster that was at its limit of players before today’s announcement. St. John’s is currently pursuing point guard Rysheed Jordan, who is ranked No. 22 on ESPN’s top 100 recruits list. His choices are down to St. John’s, Temple and UCLA.
