The Pitt basketball team will have to look elsewhere for scoring during the 2017-18 season, after Cameron Johnson announced he will be seeking a transfer.
Johnson, who was the team’s leading returning scorer, is set to move on for his final two years of college eligibility.
The news was reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review late Friday night.
From the report:
“He had no issues with coach Stallings at all,” said Gil Johnson, Cam’s father and a former Pitt player. “They had a plan for him. It was going to be centered around him. But there’s too much uncertainty there. He wants to win, and you’re going to have 8-10 new bodies.”
Last season, Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
Pitt finished the season with a disappointing 16-17 record.
