Reports: Michigan PG Dug McDaniel enters transfer portal


Michigan standout point guard Dug McDaniel entered the transfer portal on Monday, according to published reports.

McDaniel led the Wolverines in scoring (16.3 points per game), assists (4.7), 3-point baskets (56) and steals (29) in 26 games this season as a sophomore.

McDaniel’s decision comes after the Wolverines went 8-24 this season, including nine straight losses to end the season. Coach Juwan Howard was dismissed after the poor campaign.

McDaniel missed six road games due to a suspension tied to academic performance.

The 5-foot-11 McDaniel averaged 8.6 points in 34 games as a freshman before nearly doubling his scoring average this season.

Michigan guard George Washington III also entered the portal. He averaged 1.2 points in 22 games as a reserve.
