The University of South Alabama announced that sophomore Viktor Juricek and freshman T.J. Johnson intend to transfer to other programs from the men’s basketball program.

Juricek, 6’11” 210-pound native of Prievidza, Slovakia, played in 26 games over his two seasons at USA and averaged one point per game.

Johnson, a 6’2″ 175-pound guard from Tamarac, Florida and Deerfield Beach High School played in 20 games this past season and averaged 2.6 points per game for the Jaguars.

This will free up two more scholarships for head coach Matthew Graves who has already signed 6’8″ forwards Tafari Whittingham and Abdul Lewis in the early signing period. Whittingham will come from Hutchinson KA Community College and Lewis from Newark, New Jersey’s East Side High.

They also signed 6’5″ Luka Andjusic who enrolled in December and practiced with the team using his redshirt.

Coach Graves has mentioned that they want to sign a post player and a wing player with some size and quickness.

The Jags played with six freshmen this season, Andjusic made seven, out of a 14 man roster and graduated two seniors in Antoine Allen and preseason Player of the Year and multi-record holder Augustine Rubit.
