Southern Miss’ Austen Izzio entered the transfer portal after one season.
The infielder played various spots in his brief career at USM. The Pearl River Community College transfer held a .211 batting average in eight appearances and four starts.
At PRCC, Izzio hit .332, 10 home runs and drove in 46 runs in his freshman season.
“It was his decision,” Southern Miss baseball coach Scott Berry said. “He felt that it was his best interest to look at other options.”
Also not returning for the 2021 season is senior right-handed relief pitcher Alex Nelms.
