South Carolina leading scorer Meechie Johnson enters the transfer portal

The South Carolina men’s basketball team is losing one of their top players to the transfer portal.

Gamecocks’ leading scorer, Meechie Johnson, announced Monday that he is entering the transfer portal, likely ending his time at South Carolina. Johnson was the Gamecocks leading scorer this past season, leaving a large vacancy for the program.

Meechie earned All-SEC honors this past season, averaging 14.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists.

“Coach Paris has been very impactful in my life and my development, and that is my guy forever, but all being said, I will be entering the transfer portal and will also consider testing the NBA Draft waters.”

Johnson looks for greener pastures elsewhere.
