Alabama guard Jahvon Quinerly will be entering the transfer portal, On3 reported Sunday night. Quinerly averaged 8.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 35 games (six starts) this past season for the Crimson Tide, who went 31-6 and clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. Alabama ultimately fell to San Diego State in the Sweet 16.
“The relationships I’ve built have gone way beyond basketball and that’s something that has made my decision to enter the transfer portal so difficult for me,” wrote Quinerly in part of his statement.
“My basketball journey has been something that any student-athlete could only dream about. It has definitely come with its share of ups and downs but I was very fortunate to have such a beautiful support system to help me through some of my difficult moments and I think that’s what’s making this message so emotional but also so exciting to share with everyone.”
In three seasons with the Tide, Quinerly averaged 11.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 98 games (40 starts). He redshirted during the 2019-20 campaign after transferring from Villanova, where he spent one season.
Quinerly, the 2023 Southeastern Conference Co-Sixth Man of the Year, will be a graduate transfer when he lands at his next destination, making him eligible for the 2023-24 season.
