Fairleigh Dickinson freshman Robby Phillips has entered the transfer portal after one season with the Knights. Phillips appeared in nine contests and averaged 2.8 minutes per game.

Commitments

St. Bonaventure earned the commitment of Fairleigh Dickinson transfer Anquan Hill. The NEC Rookie of the Year made an immediate impact for the Knights, averaging 7.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Hill started 17 contests as a freshman, shooting 44.8 percent from the field.

Tennessee transfer Justin Powell is headed to his third program, committing to play at Washington State.

The Prospect, KY native appeared in 30 games for the Volunteers, recording one start. The 6-foot-6 sophomore’s best season came in his rookie campaign, tallying 11.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 4.7 assists, while shooting 44.2 percent from beyond the arc.

6-foot-7 junior and Fordham guard Kam’Ron Cunningham will transfer for the third time at the Division I level. Cunningham is headed to Coppin State to play for Maryland legend Juan Dixon.
