The transfer season is in full swing this off-season, as a plethora of players have decided to leave their current institutions. What makes this off-season's influx of transfers so different, is that a lot of them are unexpected, and frankly, leaves some scratching their proverbial heads.

Well, another surprising one is coming out of the Atlantic Sun Conference. Reigning Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Year, Amber Porter, has decided to transfer from Stetson, according to multiple sources. The talented 6-foot-3 post came to the conclusion that she wanted to leave the Hatters, just recently.

A dominating defensive force in her time in Deland, Porter became Stetson's all-time blocked shots leader in just two years with 208. She was also named to first-team all conference this past season. Porter did miss a couple of games this year because of a concussion.

But, all in all, this seems to be more of a case where the two parties weren't a good fit anymore.

"I don't think Stetson was the place for her, because there is a certain standard upheld as a Hatter," said Porter's former teammate and Stetson's all-time leading scorer Sasha Sims. "Porter just needs a fresh start somewhere else."

Porter averaged 13 points and 7.3 rebounds in her sophomore campaign.
