Guard KT Harrell is leaving the Virginia men’s basketball program, the school announced Friday in a news release.

“I was informed by KT and his parents today that he is planning to transfer,” Coach Tony Bennett said in the release. “I was disappointed by his decision to leave Virginia. I was hoping he would stay, but I appreciate his contributions to our program and wish him the best in the future.”

Harrell, a 6-foot-4 sophomore from Montgomery, Ala., had played in all of Virginia’s first 11 games this season and started the first five. He averaged 4.7 points and 1.0 rebound per game.

“I’m grateful for my experience at Virginia and for my teammates and coaches,” Harrell said in the release. “They were very kind and good to me. I wish them the best.”
