Former JuCo product Matt Mayers is headed to Moon Township as he announced his decision to transfer to Robert Morris on Sunday evening at Gauchos Gym in The Bronx, New York.

Mayers, a six-foot-eight forward from Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, spent his first two years at Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kansas. After struggling in his freshman season, averaging just 3.1 points per game and 2.4 rebounds per game, he took flight in his sophomore campaign, averaging 17 points and nine rebounds per game.

Head coach Andy Toole has had a very busy offseason, addressing the needs of his team, and with the addition of Mayers, he joins an already loaded frontcourt which includes incoming freshman Tristian Jeffries and several transfers in Justin Winston, Mattia Acunzo and Brandon Stone.

RMU men’s basketball will look to expand upon their rough record next season, winning just four games in their first season in the Horizon League.
