ArMond Davis, who played in all 32 games as a reserve for the University of Alabama men’s basketball team this season after transferring from a junior college, has elected to transfer from UA. He is the third player to decide to transfer since the season ended, joining Nick King and Brandon Austin
Davis’ decision leaves Alabama with 11 players on scholarship, two under the NCAA 13-player limit.
“This has been an extremely tough decision to come to,” Davis said on his Twitter account on Tuesday. “(However) with the support of my family I have made the decision to transfer. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Coach Avery Johnson and the coaching staff, and my teammates and the UA fans. I am grateful for the staff emphasizing excellence in both (academics) and athletics here at the University of Alabama.
“I am appreciative for everything the University of Alabama has taught me. Thank you, and God bless as I move on to the next chapter in my life.”
Davis played in 32 of Alabama’s 34 games this season, averaging 6.0 points and 0.1 assists per game. His best outing came in the Crimson Tide’s four-overtime win at South Carolina, where he played 38 minutes and scored 19 points, including a pair of crucial overtime three-pointers.
The 6-foot-3 guard from Tacoma, Wash., made 32 of 120 three-point attempts on the season.
Alabama is expected to add at least one transfer in the off-season to offset the three transfers.
