Brandon Porter enters transfer portal
LARAMIE -- Brandon Porter Monday became the fourth Cowboy basketball player to enter the NCAA's transfer portal since Allen Edwards was fired in early March, joining TJ Taylor, Greg Milton III and Tyler Morman.
It isn't clear whether forward from Virginia Beach is simply testing the waters or intends to leave the school. Taylor has been open to the idea of playing for first-year head coach Jeff Linder and withdrawing his name. Milton and Morman will move on.
Porter started just three games during his final season in Laramie and four overall in his career. In 2019-20, Porter played in 24 games for Wyoming, averaging 3.1 points per game to go along with a 43.4 percent field-goal percentage.
The sophomore had his best outing Dec. 18 at home against Utah Valley. Porter matched a career-high with 12 points and was 2-of-3 from beyond the arc. He was also 5-of-6 from the field in 14 minutes of play.
Porter also netted a dozen in a 77-70 home loss to Border War rival Colorado State in mid-February.
Linder has been busy stockpiling the roster since his March 17 arrival. Arizona guard Xavier DuSell was Linder's first commit. Drake Jeffries, a junior college transfer, is also coming to Laramie. Hunter Maldonado and Hunter Thompson both announced on Twitter that they will stay with the program.
It still isn't clear whether incoming sophomores Kwane Marble and Kenny Foster will return in 2020-21.
The loss of Porter leaves Wyoming with five potential scholarships.
