Bryan Trimble Jr. has chosen to transfer after his second year at St. John’s, entering his name into “the transfer portal”.

Trimble, who averaged 2.4 points per game for the Red Storm, is looking to take his talents elsewhere for a reason not yet clear. It is rumored that Trimble, a Kansas City native, was brought to St. John’s by fellow Kansas City native Marvin Clark II, who finished his fifth year of eligibility this season.

Though Trimble’s production was very limited this year, he was one of eight players that saw the court for significant time this year for the Johnnies. Coach Mullin had some level of trust to have him out there to play defense and battle, even as his offensive production was low.

A three-point specialist, Trimble shot 38% in conference play but only 32% overall this season. He also shot 1/14 in March.

After the departure of guards Shamorie Ponds and Justin Simon to the NBA draft, plus the decommitment of JUCO guard Cam Mack, Trimble was sure to have an increased role in next year’s team with the new coach.

When Trimble transfers, sophomore G Greg Williams Jr. is likely to see even more time, assuming he stays with the new coaching staff.

Incoming recruit Valdir Manuel has also opened up his commitment, and other players are said to be carefully watching who the Red Storm hire.
