UConn forward Sidney Wilson has officially entered the transfer portal and will be looking to play for a third team to continue his college basketball career.

The redshirt sophomore came to UConn after transferring from St. John’s before his freshman season began. This will be the second time Wilson has changed programs.

Wilson played sparingly down the stretch this past season, partially owing to a team-imposed suspension, and played inconsistent minutes throughout. He scored a season-high 13 points in the Huskies’ first game of the season, but recorded no points in eight of his 23 games.

Wilson’s growth as a role player in his second season in Storrs displayed some of the potential that led him to be named a consensus top-100 recruit in 2017, and he became a capable shot-blocker as a wing. His offensive game had yet to come around, however, which led to him falling out of favor in Dan Hurley’s rotations.

The decision leaves the Huskies with two open scholarships for the 2020-21 season. The Huskies have been in contact with several players seeking to transfer in, including the highly-coveted Landers Nolley II from Virginia Tech. Dimencio Vaughn, a 6’5” guard from Rider has UConn in his final three and Rice transfer Trey Murphy has also heard from Dan Hurley’s staff.
