UTEP basketball player Kaden Archie enters transfer portal

UTEP men’s basketball sophomore guard Kaden Archie becomes the fifth Miner this offseason to enter the NCAA transfer portal in what has become a roller coaster of an offseason for the team.  

Verbal Commits was the first source to report on Archie’s departure from UTEP. 

Archie joins Jordan Lathon, Nigel Hawkins, Anthony Tarke, and Deon Stroud as players to leave Head Coach Rodney Terry’s program since the end of the season. All five players started at one point or another for the Miners this season. 

Losing another player is another tough setback for a Miners squad that is coming off an underwhelming 2019-2020 campaign ending with a loss in the opening round of the Conference-USA postseason tournament 

Archie joined the Miners after transferring from Texas Christian University, where he played in 10 games averaging 2.2 points per game and was officially announced as a member of the Miners Jan. 25, 2019, and became eligible to play in November. 

During his tenure with the Miners, the four-star high school recruit notched two straight double-digit scoring performances in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii versus Ball State and Boise State. 

In February, Archie was suspended from the team for two games due to conduct that was detrimental to the team. 

The Midlothian, Texas native played in 25 games for UTEP making seven starts averaging 15 minutes per game and 3 points per game.
