Georgia guard reportedly enters transfer portal, 10th player to do so
Georgia has seen its latest men’s basketball player enter the transfer portal amid the coaching change from Tom Crean to Mike White, and ongoing roster turnover.
Noah Baumann, a guard who averaged 8.1 points per game, has indicated plans to look for a change of scenery, according to Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports. Baumann this past season started 20 of the 31 games he played, and also chipped in 3.5 rebounds in 22.1 minutes of action per game.
He also recorded 10 double-figure scoring outputs, including a 25-point performance against ETSU, and hit a team-high 59 3-pointers at a 40.7 percent clip. That percentage tied for the 10th-best single-season effort in Georgia history.
If Baumann lands with a new program, it would be his fourth since entering college after he previously played at Southern Cal and San Jose State. The Phoenix, Arizona native played the 2020-21 season at Southern Cal after competing at San Jose State in 2017-18 and over 3 seasons, started 45 of 92 games played and averaged 6.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game for the Trojans and Spartans.
Baumann is the 10th player to enter the transfer portal from Georgia after 6-foot-9 Jonathan Ned, Jaxon Etter, a shooting guard (walk-on), Tyron McMillan, a power forward, Josh Taylor, a small forward, Kario Oquendo, a shooting guard, Christian Wright, a point guard, Cam McDowell, a shooting guard, Tyrone Baker, a power forward and Dalen Ridgnal, a forward.
