Two days after the season was unexpectedly ended, the Quinnipiac men’s basketball program received more bad news.

Kevin Marfo is entering the transfer portal with intentions to play elsewhere as a grad-transfer. He will be immediately eligible.

The Bobcats’ forward had one of the best seasons of all big men in the country, leading the nation with 13.3 rebounds per game. Marfo was named to the all-MAAC second team for his red-shirt junior season.

He transferred from George Washington of the Atlantic-10 after his freshman year. He sat out his sophomore year at Quinnipiac, due to the NCAA’s transfer policy. Marfo averaged 5.4 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per contest in his red-shirt sophomore season. His red-shirt junior season was where he took off. He had as many as 21 rebounds in a game (1/12/20 in a win over Monmouth).

The Bobcats will have to fill his spot in the lineup next season with sophomore Seth Pinkney, as well as red-shirt freshman Jamil Riggins. Quinnipiac’s 2024 recruiting class features Tymu Chenery, a 6’6” forward. Quinnipiac will have three open roster spots with Marfo and Nathan Davis out and Aaron Falzon graduating.

Marfo would make sense for a Big East, A-10, or AAC tier school who needs a new look at the five spot.

As reported by Corey Evans, Marfo has been reached out to by Big 12, Big 10 and ACC schools, among others.
