Youngstown State sophomore Ryan Weber will transfer from the program, the Indy Star reported.
Weber, a 6’6″ forward, started 28 of the Penguins’ 30 games this past season. The Indianapolis native was Youngstown State’s second-leading scorer with 12.2 points per game, and he shot41.7% from 3-point range. He also hauled in 4.3 rebounds per contest, third-best on the team.
Head coach Jerry Slocum already had a bunch of production to replace for next season. All-Horizon League First Team member Kendrick Perry exhausted his eligibility, as did starting forward Kamren Belin.
Perry had been one of the conference’s best players for three seasons, and he averaged 21.3 points, 4.4 assists and 2.4 steals as a senior. Belin was the Penguins’ third-leading scorer with 11.3 points per game.
The Penguins will now return only two starters: sophomore Bobby Hain and junior DJ Cole.
Hain led the Penguins with 7.7 boards per game and also tallied 11.1 points. He led Youngstown State’s starters in field-goal percentage at 50.9%. Cole led the team with 4.6 assists per game.
