Trey Townsend transferring: 5 possible landing spots

ROCHESTER, Mich. (BVM) – Oakland forward Trey Townsend has entered the transfer portal following a tremendous season where he was named Horizon League Player of the Year. Townsend also plans to test the NBA draft waters this offseason.

Townsend starred at Oxford High School in Michigan and committed to Oakland, the same school both of his parents played college basketball at, while his younger brother is also currently on the Golden Grizzlies’ soccer team. 

Over the last four years, Townsend has started all 129 games he has played at Oakland, averaging 14.1 points and 6.9 rebounds while playing almost 35 minutes per contest. The 6-foot-6 forward has been an irreplaceable piece for Greg Kampe’s squad and that was on full display this season as Townsend averaged career highs in points (17.3), rebounds (8.1) and assists (3.1) while shooting 45.5% from the field.

The Horizon League Player of the Year also shined brightest on the biggest stage, leading his team to conference regular-season and tournament titles before helping the Golden Grizzlies upset No. 3 seed Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA Tournament with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Townsend nearly carried Oakland to the Sweet 16, scoring 30 points with 13 rebounds in the Golden Grizzlies’ second-round overtime loss to NC State

Townsend’s strong play this season and throughout his college basketball career should make him a hot commodity in the transfer portal should he return to the collegiate level next season. Here are five potential landing spots for the talented 6-foot-6 forward.
