Brown Transferring From Butler

Freshman guard Elijah Brown has been granted a release from his scholarship at Butler.

INDIANAPOLIS (IN) - The slew of transfers from Butler was thought to have come to an end, however, the school announced on Friday that freshman Elijah Brown will transfer from the school as well.

The 6-foot 4 guard averaged 6.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.2 assists while playing 18.8 minutes per game this season in 30 games.

"I would like to thank my coaches, teammates and the Butler Community. I'm blessed to have been treated as well as I have been here at Butler by everyone involved in the basketball program," Brown said in a statement released by the school.

Brown becomes the 3rd member of the class of 2013 to transfer from Butler, leaving just Andrew Chrabascz as the only member of the freshman class to remain at Butler.

"We appreciate Elijah and all of his efforts throughout his time here at Butler," said Butler head coach Brandon Miller in the release. "(Elijah) and I have had discussions about his decision and we wish him nothing but the best."

Brown joins Rene Castro, Nolan Berry, Devontae Morgan, Andrew Smeathers, and walk-on Michael Volovic who have all transferred from the program this season.
