By Nick Dugan SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse attackman Devin Shewell is no longer with the team and will transfer, according to Head Coach John Desko, who addressed the media on Thursday. Shewell’s final destination is still undetermined, Desko said.

The sophomore played in just one game for the Orange this season, recording an assist and two ground balls against Siena on February 11. In 2016, the Boys Latin (MD) product tallied seven goals, scooped up four ground balls and committed no turnovers in the ten games he played.

The former Johns Hopkins verbal commit was the first player from Boys Latin to play for the Orange since Brian Nee in 2004, according to Shewell was joined this past year by high school teammate Logan Wisnauskus, who is now a freshman for the Syracuse program.

Head Coach John Desko also announced that senior midfielder Nick Weston will also miss the remainder of the season due to an undisclosed injury. The Honeoye Falls (NY) native appeared on the second midfield line in all but one game for the Orange in 2016. In those 16 appearances, he netted five goals and dished out one assist last season.

No word has been given on whether or not Weston will file for a medical redshirt and fulfill his final year of playing eligibility next season.
