Syracuse guard Ron Patterson and forward BJ Johnson will transfer from Syracuse, according to a report from Syracuse.com.
Patterson, a sophomore, struggled shooting the ball this season. He averaged just 2.6 points and 1.7 assists per game, shooting 31 percent from the field and 17 percent from downtown.
Johnson, also a sophomore, averaged 4.1 points and 3.1 rebounds. Both players have two years of eligbility left.
Syracuse was recently sanctioned by the NCAA, resulting in the loss of three scholarships a year over a four-year period. SU is bringing in a highly touted class, including guards Malachi Richardson and Franklin Howard and forwards Tyler Lydon and Moustapha Diagne.
The two players are the first players to transfer from Syracuse since DeShonte Riley in 2011.
