Carper is also in transfer portal

Another University of Hawai’i basketball player is now entered in the NCAA transfer portal.

Dawson Carper, who was the Rainbow Warriors’ starting center for most of the 2019-20 season, is listed in the transfer portal, according to verbalcommits.com.

Carper, a 7-foot sophomore from Colorado, averaged 6.0 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, and led the team with a .613 field goal percentage this past season. He was in the starting lineup for 22 of the team’s 30 games, but his playing time diminished late in the season.

He is the second UH starter to enter the transfer portal this week. Junior point guard and team captain Drew Buggs previously entered his name in the portal.

Players who enter the NCAA transfer portal are not guaranteed to sign with another program, and have the option of staying at their current school after exploring the process.


  1. No tears here Mr. Carper.

    Maybe another program will appreciate your 3 inch vertical leap and the inability to flush it every once in a while. At 7 feet, you should dominate! Good luck

  2. Best of Luck, Dawson…Thanks for all the efforts and two years in the program…
    First Consistent Starter of our three sevens (20 Games!)
    Wish we retain at least one, more hopefully both, of the remaining seven-footers…

    All three WILL Improve…By junior year(s) should flow pretty well in system And have enough skills meshed in…
    Ideally (but it IS Asking a Lot…) like the jumps Zig, Samuta and Hemsley made in their third years…

    Hang in There !

    Go ‘Bows !
