Zach Edey quickly shot down a rumor that he has entered the transfer portal on Tuesday.

Former ESPN announcer and radio host Dan Dakich shared on Tuesday morning that his “people” told him that Edey is in the transfer portal.

Within minutes, Edey responded to the tweet and called it false:

Here’s how Dakich responded to Edey’s declaration:

Edey is coming off a historic season for Purdue. He averaged 22.3 points and 12.9 rebounds per game this season as he led Purdue to the Big Ten Tournament and regular season titles.

This was a breakout season for Edey, who shared front-court minutes with Trevion Williams over the previous 2 seasons. He played only 19 minutes per game as a sophomore in 2021-22, but still chose to remain with the Boilermakers. Transferring now, after a season where he is the presumptive National Player of the Year on the best team in the Big Ten, would make little sense.

Edey has not yet shared his plans for the future. He still has eligibility remaining, so returning to Purdue is a definite possibility. Edey could also opt to pursue professional opportunities. The only option that appears to be off the table is continuing his collegiate career outside of West Lafayette.
