Arizona State guard Jamiya Neal announced on Tuesday he is entering the transfer portal.

The junior had spent his first three seasons of his collegiate career as a Sun Devil. This past year was Neal’s first in a starting role and he averaged 11.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game while shooting 41.5% from the field and 27.5% at 3-point range.

Neal was a part of a 14-18 Arizona State team that finished ninth in the Pac-12. Head coach Bobby Hurley has been dealing with the downsides of the transfer portal since its implementation, and the potential departure of Neal along with some of his teammates is a reality the coach is forced to face each offseason.

Other key names to monitor include junior guard Frankie Collins and junior wing Adam Miller. Miller shared a pitchfork emoji on social media, seeming to indicate that he is staying put in Tempe.

Hurley’s recruiting class for 2024 includes two players ranked in 247 Sports’ top-100: forward Amier Ali and forward Sammie Yeanay.
