BYU Forward Gavin Baxter Enters Transfer Portal

NCAA Basketball: Texas Southern at Brigham Young Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

BYU senior forward Gavin Baxter will enter the transfer portal. Ben Criddle was the first to report the news.

The 6-foot-9 forward has been at BYU the last 4 seasons, but played in only 18 total games the last three due to injuries. Gavin has been a difference maker when on the court, but a shoulder injury his sophomore year and torn ACLs the last two seasons derailed him from reaching his high potential. Baxter has one year of eligibility left due to the 2020-2021 COVID season that did not count against eligibility.

Gavin was on a minutes restriction this past year after recovering from a knee injury, and scored in double figures his final three healthy games before tearing his ACL December 1 at UVU.

Baxter can be a difference maker at his next school, but health will obviously be the key question. He showed flashes at BYU with his wingspan and athleticism. Baxter signed with BYU as a member of the 2016 class and served a two-year mission before joining BYU in 2018.

Good luck to Gavin in his next stop!
