A coaching change can bring a lot of positive and negative ramifications for a program. For the Lions roster this offseason, those changes have been largely negative as the Lions transition from Max Good to Mike Dunlap.
It was reported by IronLion – who runs lmulionsroar.com – on twitter that Gabe Levin is transferring from the program.
Levin was a massive contributor for the Lions as a freshman, averaging 11.1 points and 7.1 rebounds in his first season. His statistics could have been even gaudier if he wasn’t battling a host of injuries the whole season.
Levin was a member of the 2013-14 All-West Coast Conference Freshman team, along with fellow teammate Evan Payne.
The same source also is reporting that C.J. Blackwell is leaving the program as well. The redshirt sophomore played on the wing this season for the Lions, and averaged 5.7 points and 2.1 rebounds. Blackwell’s stats were down slightly from his freshman season, where the Los Angeles, Calif. native scored 6.1 points per game and shot 40.9 percent from behind the arc, a stark difference from the 29.8 percent he shot this past season.
With all the roster changes, it is confusing to track who all exactly is on the LMU roster. Below is all the departures and acquisitions (that we know of).
Elijah Stewart (Recruit)
Kyron Cartwright (Recruit) – Landed at Providence
Marquis Godfrey (Recruit)
Alex Rifkind (Recruit) – Landed at Long Beach State
Max Heller (Walk-on)
