Pitt guard Cameron Johnson to transfer
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh redshirt sophomore guard Cameron Johnson is transferring.
This is the team’s latest departure following a bumpy first season under coach Kevin Stallings. Johnson will have two years of eligibility remaining and can play immediately because he is graduating this spring.
Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists. The Panthers 16-17 and 4-14 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and failed to reach the postseason for the first time since 2000.
Pitt is losing four players to graduation. Another four have said they are transferring: Johnson, Corey Manigault, Damon Wilson and Crisshawn Clark. Justice Kithcart was dismissed from the team March 3.
Forward Ryan Luther will be Pitt’s leading returning scorer — he averaged 5.7 points in 21 games.
