Sophomore G Aquil Younger To Transfer From Drexel Following Semester

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Following a season that did not go as planned for the Drexel Dragons, sophomore guard Aquil Younger is expected to transfer from the university following the current semester, as originally reported by CityOfBasketballLove.com.

Younger, who playing in all 31 games in the 2012-2013 season, averaged 1.4 points, 1,0 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 8.3 minutes per game under head coach Bruiser Flint this year. The news of the sophomore’s transfer came from Younger’s former AAU coach, Rodney Wescott and later, a source at Drexel confirmed the news.

While Younger did receive an increase of minutes in his sophomore campaign from his rookie year in the Colonial Athletic Association, the spike came after senior guard Chris Fouch went down with an ankle injury that cost him the season.

Now, as Fouch looks to receive a sixth year of eligibility and with Drexel still boasting All-CAA guards Frantz Massenat and Damion Lee, playing time will still be limited for Younger. Additionally, Flint will also be using rising sophomore Tavon Allen and Seton Hall transfer Freddie Wilson in his backcourt and perimeter rotation next season as well.

As Younger’s decision has not been officially announced by the university, speculating where the rising junior will likely move on to finish his collegiate career is almost impossible. According to a Philly.com piece back in Aug. 2010, Younger originally chose to join the Drexel program over Niagara, Temple, La Salle, Charlotte, and St. Mary’s College (Md.).

Flint was not available for comment on this story.
