Kent: Renard Suggs, Ny Redding to transfer

IN A MOVE WIDELY speculated as Washington State's woeful 2015-16 basketball season wound down, sophomore Ny Redding and junior Renard Suggs today were granted their releases from the program and will transfer, head coach Ernie Kent announced in a press release distributed Friday evening.

Ny Redding and Renard Suggs each asked for their release from Washington State, and they have been granted to them,” Kent said. “Ny and Renard have been great contributors to our basketball program both on and off the court. We wish them the very best in all their future endeavors.”

The departures open up two scholarship slots in WSU's 2016 recruiting class. Kent alluded last month to roster shuffling being in the works. Three weeks ago, WSU offered a scholarship to Bellarmine Prep/Tacoma point guard Malachi Flynn. The regular signing period for national letters of intent begins in mid April. In the early signing period this past November, Kent signed guard Milan Acquaah and forward Jeff Pollard.

Suggs and Redding (pictured above) -- both 6-2 guards -- saw limited playing time this season and were near-invisible in the final games of the season.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Redding played 60 games in his two-year Cougar career, having started 22 of those games. He averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 assists per game. A native of St. Paul, Minn., Suggs played in 25 games in his lone season with the Cougars this year. He averaged 5.4 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
