Gopher FR Miles Webb Decides to Transfer

Six-foot-3 combo guard Miles Webb, a freshman from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, has decided to transfer from Minnesota. Webb played in nine games last season and averaged 1.0 points and 0.3 rebounds in 2.4 minutes of action per game. He is the second Gopher to transfer this week. Redshirt freshman Kerry Wooldridge announced that he was leaving the program on Monday. The defections will give the Gophers two available scholarships.

Miles Webb starred at Brooklyn Park (MN) Center, where the Pirates lost to Armstrong 58-43 in the first round of the Section 5 Class AAAA playoffs, despite his 20-point effort as a senior. Webb signed his letter of intent with the Gophers in the early signing period. He committed to the Gophers before his junior season and was one of the top finalists for Minnesota's Mr. Basketball award.

"I fulfilled a personal goal to play for the Gophers, but now it's time for me to continue my career somewhere else," said Webb. "I would like to thank my teammates and the coaching staff for making me a better basketball player and hope they continue the success we started this season."

"Miles committed to us as a sophomore in high school when this program had a lot of question marks," head coach Dan Monson said. "We'll always be grateful for his commitment to this program and we sincerely hope he has a great career."
