It didn’t take long for Nate Pryor to find a new home.
Two days after entering the NCAA transfer portal, the reserve guard of the Washington men’s basketball team announced on his Twitter page that he was going to play in the state of New Mexico.
On Saturday afternoon, Pryor posted a picture of himself wearing an Aggies T-shirt with the caption “Dedicated”.
Pryor becomes the first of five Huskies to enter the portal to find a new team. Other UW players who plan to move include Eric Stevenson, Marcus So Ohonis, RaeQuan Battle and J’Raan Brooks.
In his only season as a Husky, 6-footer 4 junior Pryor averaged 4.1 points, 1.6 assists, 1.3 rebounds and 17.4 minutes in 19 games.
Pryor scored a season-high 15 points against 17 shooting 17s, 5 assists and three steals against Colorado in 2020. He also scored 13 points in his other start on December 9 against the University of Seattle; on December 16 he scored 13 points in the game against Montana.
However, Pryor did not score more than four points for the rest of the season and dropped out after the first eight games. He has not played in nine of the last 18 games.
Pryor was filmed at West Seattle High և In April 2017, he signed a contract with Washington, but spent a year in preschool to improve his academic staff.
After two seasons at Northern Idaho College, where he averaged 17.9 points and 4.7 assists, a record of 59-3, Pryor moved to Washington last year.
Pryor joins a team from the state of New Mexico that finished 7-6 overall this season, 12-8, the third in the Western Athletics Conference.
