Boston College lands Mississippi State transfer C Quinten Post

New Boston College men’s basketball coach Earl Grant continues to build his roster out via the transfer portal. On Tuesday, Boston College landed Quinten Post, a 7-foot center from Mississippi State.

During his two seasons with MSU, Post appeared in 39 games. As a sophomore in the 2020-21 season, Post played in 31 games; he averaged 2.8 points and 2.5 rebounds.

A mostly unheralded recruiting in the 2019 class, Post, who hails from the Netherlands, committed to Mississippi State over Georgia Tech, Washington State and Western Kentucky.

Post is the third transfer that Grant has added in the last few weeks. First, combo guard Brevin Galloway decided to follow Grant from Charleston to Chestnut Hill. More recently, Grant also landed Drexel transfer forward TJ Bickerstaff.

Unsurprisingly, with the coaching change, BC has a handful of players departing the program via the portal as well:

  • Jay Heath — Arizona State
  • CJ Felder — Florida
  • Rich Kelly — UMass
  • Wynston Tabbs — East Carolina
  • Kamari Williams — Miami (OH)
  • Steffon Mitchell

A lengthy rebuild is on the horizon for Grant at BC; however, as he’s looking to start that process, adding veteran talent is wise, too.
