“We want to thank Brady for his contribution to our program over the past four seasons,” McCaffery said. “Brady is a hard worker, a terrific teammate, and a good student. We wish Brady good luck in his future endeavors. My staff and I will do whatever we can to help Brady during this transition.”
The 6-foot-4 guard will not have to sit out a season, as he is a graduate transfer. He will be able to play right away.
Ellingson played in 26 games this past season and averaged 2.8 points per contest. As a Hawkeye — over the past four years — he shot 40 percent from 3-point range.
