Redshirt sophomore Lahat Thioune has entered the transfer portal, per Verbal Commits.

The 6-foot-10 center played in 20 games, averaging 5.6 minutes per game. He averaged 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds per game. He did not play during Utah’s double-overtime loss to USC in the Pac-12 tournament.

After appearing in only seven games this past season for the University of Utah, and playing only 31 minutes, sophomore Jordan Kellier has entered the transfer portal.

The 6-foot-6 guard from Portmore, Jamaica, who transferred from Williston State last summer, averaged just 1.3 points and 0.9 rebounds in those seven games.

He last played against Arizona State during Utah’s big blowout of the Sun Devils on March 6, playing five minutes and going 2 for 4 from the field for four points, a season-high.

Kellier had five double-doubles in 2019-20 at Williston State, which is in North Dakota, and scored 20 or more points in 10 games. He played high school basketball at Redemption Christian Academy in Troy, New York.

Kellier was in the same signing class as current Utes Pelle Larsson and Ian Martinez and former Sky View star Mason Falslev, who is currently on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
