Two days after the announcement of Adonis De La Rosa's release from St. John's, another contributor off the bench is moving onto another program.

Sharp shooter, Myles Stewart, announced on his Twitter that he is set to transfer from St. John's after playing only 96 minutes this past season under Steve Lavin.

During his freshman season, Stewart averaged 1.4 points per game, 0.4 rebounds, shot 30 percent from the field and 30 percent from downtown. He started a single game (against Niagara) and scored a career high nine points while playing a total of 19 minutes.

Stewart was a overlooked 2-star recruit coming out of Westchester High School in Los Angeles California as the shooting guard has good size (6'5") and a smooth stroke from beyond the three point arc. He also has the ability to push the ball in transition with his solid ball handling skills and high basketball IQ.

Lavin spoke very highly of Stewart at the beginning of last season while mentioning that he could earn a scholarship later in his career with the Johnnies. With Lavin receiving a pink slip at the end of the season and new head coach Chris Mullin finding new players left and right, Stewart is now going to look for a lower level school that can offer him a scholarship and more playing time.

Stewart did earn valuable experience playing alongside four senior guards and traveling to the NCAA Tournament in year one of his college career. He can now be a valuable player for three more years for some other school in Division I.
