WMU Men's Basketball Michael Flowers

WMU guard Michael Flowers goes up for a layup against Kent State 

Western Michigan transfer guard Michael Flowers is transferring to South Alabama, Flowers announced Sunday night via his Twitter account.

When Flowers announced his final four schools on May 18, South Alabama was not listed, as Flowers announced at the time he was choosing between Iowa State, California, DePaul and Santa Clara.

Flowers first entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal on March 30, the same day new men’s basketball head coach Clayton Bates was formally introduced by the program.

Flowers was a focal point in the Broncos offense the past two seasons while averaging a career-high 16.9 points per game in 2019-20 and 15.7 in 2018-19.

In three seasons at WMU, Flowers averaged 13 points to go along with 2.5 assists per game. He will likely have to sit out a season due to the current NCAA transfer rules, unless those guidelines change sometime in the near future.

Forward Brandon Johnson also entered the portal on the same day as Flowers, as he announced his commitment to Minnesota on April 9.

Since then, Bates has filled the four remaining scholarship openings on the WMU roster by welcoming two grad transfers in Jaylon Holmes (Lincoln Trail College) and Greg Lee (Cal State Bakersfield), along with two incoming freshmen (Daylan Hamilton and Josiah Freeman).
