For reasons that nobody is bothering to say, a seventh Vanderbilt basketball player has entered the transfer portal, and it is now officially time to panic.
Vanderbilt guard Tyrin Lawrence has entered the transfer portal, @247SportsPortal has learned.— Travis Branham (@TravisBranham_) April 24, 2023
Averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists this season.
Lawrence was Vanderbilt’s second-leading scorer, and had entered his name in the NBA Draft a few weeks ago, but we all thought he’d probably be returning to school. This news suggests that if he does return to school, that school will not be Vanderbilt. And if you’re keeping score at home, five of Vanderbilt’s top six scorers from last season’s team are now gone, and while I think some of those guys are replaceable, Lawrence wasn’t one of them.
But! I am sure we will find out all of the reasons why he’s entering the transfer portal very soon, because players are always completely up front about why they’re leaving in their four-paragraph goodbye letters to fans.
