Devon McMillan To LIU Post

Following a December announcement that he would transfer, Devon McMillan has finally found a place to resume his career.

McMillan, who was granted his release from Fordham last month in the wake of a comeback attempt following two shoulder surgeries in the offseason, has apparently transferred to LIU Post University on Long Island, as reported earlier this morning by SNY's Adam Zagoria, who was informed by the point guard's brother.

The 5-10 sophomore, dubbed "Fatty" while a prospect at Lincoln High School prior to signing with Tom Pecora and the Rams, scored eight points in three games this season after a freshman campaign that saw him average over seven points per contest one year ago.  McMillan will be able to compete next season for LIU Post, as the school is a Division II program and players who transfer down from Division I do not need to sit out a year.

The Pioneers, now coached by former St. John's assistant Chris Casey after he replaced Tim Cluess in the wake of Cluess taking the job at Iona, are 11-4 on the current season, and just had an eleven-game winning streak snapped by NYIT after starting 0-3.

A Daly Dose Of Hoops will have additional updates on McMillan when they become available.

  1. Good luck to him. CW Post makes sense. If he was struggling to get significant playing time at Fordham, which has a weak compliment at guard, an attempt to transfer to another NYC D1 school like LIU or Wagner would make no sense at all for him. Fatty would never see any playing time at either school, which are both stronger at guard than Fordham.

    1. He would actually have a good chance to start at LIU considering he would sit out next year, which is when their incumbent PG Jason Brickman graduates. Fatty would have two years left but then again, if he couldn't get decent minutes with TP, there's more to the story than meets the eye.

  2. LIU does a much better job than Fordham in recruiting talent at guard. I doubt Fatty would have much of a chance at breaking into the rotation there.
