Here is the press release.
Milwaukee – Freshman forward Jamal Ferguson of the Marquette University men's basketball team has been granted his release from the program and will transfer.
"Jamal has decided it is in the best interest of his future that he leave the team," head coach Buzz Williams said. "He has our complete support, and we wish him nothing but the best and are very appreciative of his contributions while he was here."
The Norfolk, Va., native appeared in 14 games off the bench for MU in 2012-13, his first season with the program. He averaged 1.1 points and 0.6 rebounds in 4.6 minutes per outing.
"I am hoping to find a school closer to my family, who are very important to me," Ferguson said. "I would also like to obviously find a situation where I can have more playing time on the court."
