Last seasons leading scorer in the Western Athletic Conference announced that he will be entering the transfer portal ahead of the 2021-22 season. Trammell was in his first season with the Redhawks and was also selected to the WAC All-Conference First Team.
Darrion has already transferred once in his collegiate career when he came to Seattle U from City College of San Francisco. He was an immediate impact player when he took over as the teams lead guard and led the team in scoring at 20.5 points per game. His hard work on the court was recognized when he was selected to WAC Player of the Week twice during the season.
The guard was also selected to WAC All-Newcomer and First Team All Tournament. In all, he averaged 20.5 PPG, 5.3 APG, 3.8 RPG.
His announced departure is a huge dent to a Redhawk team that appeared to be on the come up in the WAC. The team was able to get a win in the WAC Vegas tournament but fell in the second round to eventual champions in Grand Canyon. Many felt the team came up short due to a lack of a true post presence in a league that has several great big men. On the other hand, their strength was their guard play. Trammell leaving the program feels like a hit to an area that this team already had secured.
In his announcement, Trammell thanked Seattle University and coach Jim Hayford for giving him an opportunity to play Division 1 basketball. He also did a shout out to the Marin City community for supporting him, which is his hometown.

Darrion joins over 1,000 current players who are testing the transfer portal ahead of next season. This has flipped college basketball upside down and has given it a free agency feeling that we would typically see in the NBA.
Trammell still has 3 years of NCAA eligibility left. Whatever school he does eventually pick, will be getting a great guard who plays with a motor that is hard to match.
