Redshirt freshman guard moving on for family reasons

Jamie Dixon announced today that redshirt freshman guard Isaiah Epps has decided to transfer due to family-related reasons. Epps has been granted a full release from his scholarship and is expected to transfer to a school closer to his home in New Jersey.

“We have been in constant communication with Isaiah regarding his family’s well-being,” Dixon said. “We believe that it is best for Isaiah to be close to home and we will assist him in finding the best possible situation to reach his goals, both academically and athletically. He’s a great kid, hard worker and good player. We thank Isaiah for his contribution to our program over the last two years and wish him much success in the future.”
 
Epps, a 6-foot-2-inch, 185-pound guard, started two contests and played in 19 games this past season. He averaged 0.1 points and 0.2 rebounds per game.
