Xzavier Malone-Key, a guard from Fairleigh Dickinson who chose to opt out of the 2020-2021 season and transfer out of the Knights program, has decided on his list of potential destinations for his future with Oregon State making the cut for the final five.

He announced the remaining schools in the mix via a post on his Twitter account.

The five programs in the group of landing spots include Florida, Georgia, Montana and North Texas, as well as the Beavers, clearly showing that location and level of competition is not a priority for the Philadelphia native. Apparently, the graduate transfer who could be immediately eligible for the 2021-2022 season is simply looking for the right fit both on and off the court.

A 6’ 4”, 190-pound guard, Malone-Key started 26 games for Fairleigh Dickinson last season, averaging 12.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per contest, while shooting an impressive 48.1% from the field.

This will be the second transfer of Malone-Key’s college career, as he previously suited up for Rider during the 2016-2017 campaign.

Malone-Key has given no set date at the moment of when he may announce his final decision.
