The Utah State men’s basketball just lost a key piece of its 2020-21 team to the transfer portal.

Junior guard Marco Anthony, one the defensive anchors for the Aggies, announced Monday on Twitter that he will be leaving USU and opening his recruitment.

“I feel it is in my best interest to reopen my recruitment as a grad transfer to find the best situation for me and my future,” Anthony said in a written message.

Anthony transferred to USU after winning a national championship with Virginia in 2019. This past season was his first in a USU uniform due to the NCAA transfer rules. He started in all 28 games he played and averaged 10.0 points, 3.1 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.

Anthony is not the only player who has his sights left on leaving the Aggies. Rollie Worster, Kuba Karwowski and Zahar Vedischev have all reportedly entered the transfer porter, per Verbal Commits, a website that tracks players who enter the portal.

Utah State recently underwent a coaching change with Ryan Odom coming in for Craig Smith, who recently became the University of Utah’s head coach.
