St. John’s basketball forward Quinn Slazinski has reentered the transfer portal. 

Another roster transaction has taken place with the St. John’s basketball program as forward Quinn Slazinski has reentered the transfer portal.

Slazinski, a transfer from Iona, will now be searching for his third school after beginning his career at Louisville.

The 6-foot-9 native of Texas is still completing classes at Iona to graduate in order to become immediately eligible for the upcoming season.

The move comes a day after the Red Storm landed a verbal commitment from Harvard transfer Chris Ledlum.

Ledlum originally committed to Tennessee in May, choosing the Volunteers over St. John’s and Indiana.

Quinn Slazinski originally to St. John’s in late April and was one of four Iona players to follow Rick Pitino to Queens, along with Daniss Jenkins, Sadiku Ibine Ayo, and Cruz Davis.

“Thank you for never lying to me,” Slazinski said on Instagram with a picture of him and Pitino during their tenure at Iona.

“And always wanting the best for me.”

Slazinski was limited to just seven games last season for the Gaels due to injury but averaged 11.3 points per contest when he was on the floor.

In his only full season with Iona, Quinn Slazinski posted 8.4 points per game in 33 games played.

Slazinski averaged 4.0 points per game during his 35 game tenure at Louisville over two seasons.

St. John’s basketball roster back to original issue

St. John’s now returns to 14 players on its active roster, all of which are on scholarship, but one player will have a significant Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) package that will makeup for his lack of scholarship.

The NCAA only allows 13 players to be on scholarship for a Division I men’s basketball team, and it’s unclear at this time who that player will be.
