UNLV freshman guard to enter transfer portal

Updated March 19, 2023 - 7:50 pm

UNLV freshman guard Keyshawn Hall said Sunday he is leaving the program.

Hall, a Cleveland native, averaged 5.4 points and 10.8 minutes in 18 games this season, displaying a savvy offensive repertoire.

Hall’s conditioning also improved throughout the season, and with a fluid handle at 6 feet, 7 inches, he’s expected to have several suitors in the transfer portal.

He’s the first player to transfer in the offseason, and the program is preparing for the potential departure of others.

With that in mind, the Rebels are mining the transfer portal for established players. They’ve touched base with Nate Calmese (Lamar), Mike Mitchell (Pepperdine), Mike Meadows (Portland), Robert Jennings (Texas Tech) and Zid Powell (Buffalo).

UNLV finished 19-13 under second-year coach Kevin Kruger.
