Auburn guard Justin Powell has entered the transfer portal. The news was first reported by Jake Weingarten and later confirmed by 247Sports.
The 6-foot-5 freshman took over the starting job at point guard four games into the season, averaging 11.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists.
After 11 games, he was sidelined with a concussion sustained against Texas A&M on Jan. 2 and did not return this season.
“I’m very thankful for my time at Auburn,” Powell told 247Sports. “Thank you to Bruce Pearl, the Auburn staff, my teammates, the trainers, doctors and everyone at Auburn but I felt that this was the best decision for me at this time.”
He was ranked as the No. 185 overall prospect in the 2020 247Sports Composite Rankings.
