IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery announced today that guard Patrick Ingram (6-foot-2, 211 pounds) has asked for and has been granted his release from his scholarship to transfer to another school.
“Patrick is a tremendous person who was an integral part of our program last season,” said McCaffery. “Patrick indicated that he wants to be closer to home and we have granted his request. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
The native of Indianapolis averaged six minutes, 0.9 points and 0.6 rebounds in 19 games off the bench as a freshman last season.
Iowa will return 11 letterwinners from a team that went 25-13 and earned NIT runner-up honors, while also adding redshirt freshman forward Kyle Meyer, sophomore swingman Jarrod Uthoff and freshman guard Peter Jok.
