Before donning blue and gold for a single game, redshirt sophomore Gabe Levin has decided to transfer from Marquette, per a press release from the school.
Levin had previously transferred to the Golden Eagles from Loyola Marymount about four months ago. During his first and only season with LMU, Levin averaged 11.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game, earning him a spot on the all-WCC freshman team.
“We wish Gabe nothing but the best as he pursues other opportunities to continue his career,” said head coach Steve Wojciechowski in the school’s release.
No reason has been given for Levin’s departure thus far, but the situation will undoubtedly be addressed at media day tomorrow. This is the second year in a row that a player has left Marquette before playing a single minute. Last year’s transfer, Jameel McKay, eventually chose to take his talents to Iowa State, where he will become eligible to play this December.
Levin’s departure opens up another scholarship for the 2015-16 season, which could be used on a high school recruit, another transfer, or as an extra scholarship for the 2016-17 recruiting class. Hopefully that incoming player won’t turn the two-year preseason transfer streak into something of a tradition.
