Mike Burwell And Shedrick Haynes To Transfer From USF Basketball

Reserve guards Mike Burwell and Shedrick Haynes have left the USF basketball program and are free to transfer to any school.

USF basketball players Mike Burwell and Shedrick Haynes have officially been released of their scholarships and are now free to transfer to any school.

Both Burwell and Haynes were mired on the bench this season for the Bulls. Burwell played in 31 games this year, starting in 5, and averaged 8 minutes, 1.7 points, and .8 rebounds a game. Haynes played even less in his first year at USF, averaging 6 minutes, 1.1 points, and .4 rebounds in 25 contests.

Both Haynes and Burwell were vying to be PG Anthony Crater's back-up this season, and while they were both given opportunities for extended minutes, neither showed the ability to run the offense efficiently. To make matters worse, both players had a penchant for turning the ball over, and eventually Freshman LaVonte Dority jumped ahead of both players on the depth chart.

Burwell will have two years left of eligibility after the mandatory redshirt season, but Haynes will have to transfer to a Division II or NAIA school to play in his last season without sitting out a year.

With Stan Heath already holding commitments from guards Blake Nash and Anthony Collins, both scholarships have already been accounted for next season.
