Byron Wesley, USC’s leading scorer last season, announced on Twitter that he decided to transfer for his final season of collegiate eligibility.
Individually, Wesley put up big numbers in the first season of the Andy Enfield era, averaging 17.8 points and 6.4 rebounds. As a team, the Trojans won a total of only 12 Pac-12 conference games during Wesley’s three seasons at USC.
It should be noted Wesley was suspend two games this season for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
“We wish Byron well and we thank him for his valuable contributions to our program,” Enfield said in a statement. “We are happy for him that he will leave USC with his degree. He Had a very productive career here and I am sure he will do well wherever his career takes him.”
Freshman forward Roschon Prince also recently announced he would transfer.
With Wesley leaving, Nikola Jovanovic is USC’s leading returning scorer at 8.0 points per game. Next season the Trojans will add offensive firepower, including incoming freshman Jordan McLaughlin and transfer Katin Reinhardt.
