Wesley Myers, the leading scorer for the Maine Black Bears, will transfer to USC. The news was first reported by Jon Rothstein from CBS Sports.
As a graduate transfer, Myers will be immediately eligible in his final season on the collegiate level. The Brooklyn, New York native is a 6-2, 185 pound guard who will be headed to his third school.
After two years at Niagra University, Myers transferred to Maine where in his only season with the Black Bears, he led the team in scoring with an average of 16.9 points per game. However, his season ended prematurely after he was involved in a Valentine's Day fight in the locker room where he reportedly broke a teammate's jaw with a punch during an argument about locker room music. He missed his team's final four games and eventually was kicked off the team.
Now he will use his final season of eligibility at USC which is coming off a Final Four season for the first time in school history. Myers will join Frank Booker from FAU as graduate transfers who will have their final season of college basketball in Columbia.
