Men’s Basketball: Mavin to transfer, according to Facebook page

Rolando Rosa

The Owls’ new recruiting class has versatile players such as Chris Bryant and Devonte Thornton, capable of playing multiple positions and providing the depth Mike Jarvis is seeking.

It appears they’ll get a decent shot at starting games, too.

Add Dennis Mavin to the growing list of FAU players deciding to leave the basketball team. Mavin, a sophomore, wrote “Yes I’m transferring!” on his Facebook page earlier today.

Mavin is now the fourth player with eligibility to leave FAU since its season concluded, joining juniors Kore White (transferring), Ray Taylor (declaring for the NBA draft), and freshman Omari Grier (transferring).

Including senior guards Shavar Richardson and Alex Tucker, who graduated, the team has now lost five of its top seven scorers from last season.

Mavin played just 13.2 minutes per game but was the Owls most aggressive player on offense, attempting 73 free throws for the season, 18 more than second place Kore White, who played 23.2 minutes per game.

The recruiting class already consists of Fishburne Academy teammates Chris Bryant and Jackson Trapp, Osborne High School player Devonte Thornton, Poinciana High School point guard Stefan Moody, and Spanish point guard Javier Lacunza.
