Houston Cougars sophomore big man Kiyron Powell has left the program for personal reasons and will enter the transfer portal, Houston Head Coach Kelvin Sampson announced Sunday.

A native of Evansville, IN, Powell sat out the 2021-22 season as a redshirt. As a freshman in 2020-21, he competed in 14 games and enjoyed a career day with 11 points and 13 rebounds against Our Lady of the Lake for his first double-double.

“We wish Kiyron the best in the next chapter of his life,” Sampson said.
