It’s no surprise that with graduations and the departure of head coach Mark Byington, the JMU men’s basketball team is expected to seek additions from the transfer portal. It’s crucial for them to replenish their team for the upcoming season.

Rising junior guard Xavier Brown has announced his return to JMU, which is significant news for the Dukes. Brown played a key role during his sophomore season, showcasing his scoring abilities and energetic defense. He has the potential to be a standout player in the Sun Belt conference.

As of now, there have been no new additions to the team through the transfer portal. However, several departures will impact the team’s roster for the upcoming season. Terrence Edwards, who was named 2023-24 Sun Belt Player of the Year, plans to test the NBA waters. Standout freshman Jaylen Carey has transferred to Vanderbilt, where he is expected to make significant contributions. Raekwon Horton, a junior transfer, has also left JMU after making an impact during his time with the team. Justin Amadi, a forward who missed last season due to injury, has also decided to depart from the team.
