Ar’Mond Davis, a shooting guard who appeared in 32 games for the University of Alabama basketball team in 2017 before sitting out the 2018 season as a redshirt, will transfer to another school for the 2019 season.
“I am forever grateful for the opportunity at the University of Alabama,” Davis said via his Twitter account on Tuesday. “I am appreciative of the love and support I received at UA from coaches and fans. However with the support of my family. I will utilize my fifth year as a graduate transfer. Thank you and God bless.”
Davis would be immediately eligible under the NCAA graduate transfer rule and has already attracted scholarship offers from mid-major programs including UC-Santa Barbara and Illinois-Chicago.
He averaged 6.0 points per game as a junior at Alabama, where he transferred after playing two years of junior college basketball at the College of Southern Idaho. His most memorable performance was a 19-point effort in Alabama’s four-overtime victory over eventual Final Four participant South Carolina in Columbia, S.C.
Alabama is still awaiting decisions on the upcoming season from other players.
