San Diego freshman guard Noel Coleman entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal on Sunday.

Coleman will still have three years of eligibility remaining following a sit-out year.

“It just wasn’t the place for me,” Coleman explained. “The coach and I didn’t really have a connection like I wanted to have with my head coach.”

Coleman saw action in 24 games for the Toreros, but played limited minutes. Coleman finished the season averaging 2.4 points per game, playing an average of 9.4 minutes per game.

He was at his best early on in the season where he finished with double-digit scoring in back-to-back games against stiff competition.

With the departure of Coleman, San Diego will now have seven guards returning to next years team. Minutes will be at a premium and that’s what Coleman will be looking for at his next stop.

“Mainly [looking for] more of a connection with my head coach,” he said. “And a place where the coach trusts my game and potential…also a better atmosphere and definitely more minutes as well.”

So far, Cal Baptist and Hawaii have reached out to the 6-1 guard from Aalst, Belgium.
