UMass star big man Tre Mitchell is expected to transfer from the program, sources told ESPN.

Mitchell, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, will immediately become one of the most sought-after transfers in the country.

He averaged 18.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists this season. Mitchell had a number of huge performances: 31 points and 11 rebounds against Northeastern, 37 points against La Salle, and 30 points and six rebounds in the Atlantic 10 tournament against Saint Louis.
