St. John’s junior wing L.J. Figueroa is in the Transfer Portal and figures to have a number of suitors.
Figueroa will have to sit the 2020-21 season unless he obtains a waiver.
As a junior during the 2019-20 season, Figueroa averaged 14.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 32 games played. He led the Big East with 1.9 steals per game. He would have been St. John’s leading returning scorer.
