Walk-on Nick Neari is leaving the Iowa men's basketball program. The sophomore-to-be from Illinois says he will be transferring to Division II Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha at the end of the semester.

"I loved my experience here at Iowa and will always keep in touch with the great people I met here," Neari wrote in an email. "It is a personal choice and had nothing to do with the new coaches. I'm excited for the Hawkeyes in the future. They have great potential and hopefully they reach it."

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Neari prepped at North High in St. Charles, Ill. As a freshman last season, he saw limited action in seven games.
