Liberty guard Isiah Warfield has entered the transfer portal, as first reported by Verbal Commits. Warfield is the third player to enter the portal from the Flames this week, joining Blake Preston and Jonathan Jackson. The 6’5″ Warfield has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Warfield played in 35 games this season for the Flames, averaging 17.9 minutes per game. He also averaged 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 49.2% from the field. Warfield was one of Liberty’s top defenders, frequently drawing the opposing team’s top perimeter offensive threat alongside Joseph Venzant.

Warfield has played 87 games during his three seasons with Liberty. Over the past two seasons, he has emerged as a rotation piece for the Flames. While defense has been his strength and hustle plays have been his calling card, Warfield has not had a large role at Liberty on the offensive end of the floor.

Out of Sewickley Academy in Pennsylvania, the three-star Warfield was one of the highest rated recruits in school history when he signed with the Flames. With the transfer of Warfield, Liberty now has three scholarship spots available for the 2022-23 season.

“Flames Nation, I just want to start by saying thank you,” Warfield said in a statement released on his social media. “These past three years you guys have showed me nothing but amazing support. I want to say thank you to my teammates who believed and loved me from the day I stepped onto campus. I will cherish the life long relationships I have formed while being a Flame.”

“Thank you to my parents, family, and close friends for helping me along my journey and showing me nothing but love and support and for that I am forever grateful,” Warfield continued. “Thank you to Coach McKay and support staff for giving me the opportunity to mature and grow as a man and spiritually with my time here at Liberty.”

“With that being said, I have decided to enter the transfer portal with two years of eligibility and begin a new chapter of my life.”
