Minnesota 7-footer Liam Robbins has entered the NCAA transfer portal, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.
The junior center averaged 11.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and a Big Ten-leading 2.7 blocks in 23 starts during his only season with the Golden Gophers. He missed the last six games with a sprained left ankle.
Robbins played his first two seasons at Drake, averaging 9.4 points, 5.0 boards and 2.1 blocks in 65 games (36 starts) from 2018-20.
He is the seventh player from Minnesota's 2020-21 roster to enter the portal since coach Richard Pitino was fired last month and replaced by Ben Johnson. The others are All-Big Ten point guard Marcus Carr, Gabe Kalscheur, Jamal Mashburn Jr., Tre' Williams, Jarvis Omersa and Sam Freeman.
The Gophers finished 14-15 in 2020-21, including 6-14 in the Big Ten.
Pitino was named the head coach at New Mexico the day after he was dismissed at Minnesota.
