Two of Mike Jarvis' top recruits are one-and-done at FAU.
Rising freshmen Cavon Baker and Chris Bryant intend to transfer from FAU, an Owls basketball official told the Sun Sentinel Thursday afternoon.
The transfers are hardly surprising — both players had strained relationships with Jarvis and had been held out of games for grade issues.
Baker started the season as FAU's point guard of choice, but by mid-season he was passed over for fellow freshman Jackson Trapp.
In December, Baker was suspended three games for grade issues before conference play started, and upon returning from that suspension, his minutes waned. He played a total of 61 minutes in FAU's final 17 Sun Belt games, and only two in the team's last seven games.
Bryant, a highly-heralded 6-foot-8 forward didn't start the season on time because of grade issues — and once the season started he had a hard time breaking into the FAU rotation. Jarvis, on more than one occasion, labeled him as "soft" in post-game press conferences.
In all, Bryant averaged 8.6 minutes per game, in that time averaging less than a point and 1.3 rebounds.
Their destinations are not yet known.
Neither player returned texts seeking comment Wednesday. FAU declined to comment, saying that any press releases will be sent out after the semester ends.
