Fordham basketball's Devon McMillan announces intent to transfer

USA TODAY Sports

Fordham lost a player from its basketball team going forward with the news that Devon "Fatty" McMillan plans on transferring from the school.

Devon McMillan will be moving on from the Fordham basketball program, leaving behind an opportunity to play under head coach Tom Pecora for a fresh start, according to SNY.

The sophomore will transfer after the semester is completed to a school that is unknown to this point. He was granted his release from the school on Tuesday.

"He’s leaving because he feels like he needs a new setting," McMillan's brother Dwan said. "He’s just coming off surgery and missing the first six games. He felt it was best to move on. He thanks the coaching staff for giving him the opportunity to flourish as a freshman. But it was time move on."

McMillan hadn't really become any type of contributor this season for the Rams, averaging only 2.7 points per game in three contests following an injury that kept him out of the team's first six tilts.

Last year as a freshman, McMillan showed flashed of promise but only mustered 7.4 points per night.

The move is somewhat surprising considering McMillan's apparent affinity for Pecora. After initially committing to Hofstra, McMillan went to Fordham because of Pecora, who took the Rams' job last year.

McMillan is a New York product, playing high school ball all over the state including Long Island and Newburgh.
