Arizona State guard Jay Heath heads to the transfer gate again

Guard Jay Heath only spent one year at Arizona State, but it looks like it will be his last as he decided to research transfer options.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound player averaged 10.6 points last season when he transferred from Boston College. He was the team’s second behind DJ Horne. Heath started 17 of 28 games and scored in double figures 17 times with his season-best 20 points against Utah in a game in which he went 7 of 11 from the field with four 3-pointers.

Heath also had heroic moments, one to come when he buried a game-winning 3-pointer in overtime in a game at Oregon in December.

Heath, a Washington DC native, shot 42% from the field and 43% from long range, with that depth average being the best on the team. He also hit 74% from the line.

Heath is the second starter to enter the NCAA transfer portal, the first being forward Jalen Graham who ended up in Arkansas. Three other players have also put their names on the portal – Justin Rochelin, Will Felton and Demari Williams, but these three players all wore red shirts last season and did not see playing time. is found at North Carolina A&T.

The Sun Devils did, however, land three players through the portal. That includes brothers Devan and Desmond Cambridge of Auburn and Nevada respectively, as well as 7-footer Warren Washington (Nevada).

With Heath gone, head coach Bobby Hurley has two scholarships available.
