Juhwan Harris-Dyson, a 6’6” junior guard from Northridge, California, has entered the transfer portal for the second time. Harris-Dyson has accumulated 29 starts and 345 points for the Bears since his freshman year.

Harris-Dyson, a four-star recruit, joined Cal’s roster in fall 2017, but before he could get a chance to step on the court, he came down with a serious case of the flu. After an ambulance ride and a visit to the hospital, it seemed his first season was derailed, but he managed to recover and push through a grueling rehabilitation schedule. In his first season, he scored in the double-digits nine times and started in 16 Pac-12 games.

In Harris-Dyson’s sophomore season, he saw fewer starts, but set his career high in scoring with 15 against Santa Clara. During the 2019-20 season, he played in 13 games and scored 52 points, but in early February, head coach Mark Fox announced he would be out indefinitely for academic reasons.

“Juhwan won’t be back,” Fox said. “He is focused on his schoolwork.”

Entering the transfer portal does not necessitate departure from the program, as Harris-Dyson entered the portal last season before returning to the team. Should Harris-Dyson depart, however, Cal will have three open scholarship spots. Graduating senior Paris Austin and graduate transfer Kareem South will be leaving the program, but the Bears have signed three-star prospects Jalen Celestine and Monty Bowser. Cal had one open scholarship spot this season, but if Harris-Dyson and Jacobi Gordon, who announced his intent to transfer in March, leave the team, then the Bears will have three spots to fill.
