Jamir Hanner a Sophomore forward from Marshall is reportedly transferring to Buffalo. After sitting out one season the Philadelphia native will have two seasons left of eligibility.

Last season Hanner played in 25 of 32 games for the Herd and averaged 3.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in just 9.2 minutes.. Had two ten point showings, including 21 against UB division mate on Ohio. His career-high in rebounds also came at Ohio with seven boards. He also had strong showings against Navada, with ten points on 5-for-8 shooting while pulling down six rebounds.

He led Marshall in in field goal percentage, among those with at least 50 attempts, with a 57.9 percent (33-57). Hanner was also 3-of-6 (50.0 percent) from three-point range.

Jamir would be a good depth player right off the bat but after sitting out a year, with Javon McCrea departing he may be up for significant time once he can hit the floor.
