Brady Ellingson will not return to the Iowa basketball program next season, as the redshirt junior will play his final season of eligibility elsewhere, according to a report by Hawkeye Heaven’s Levi Thompson.
As a graduate transfer, Ellingson will be immediately eligible to play next season, according to NCAA rules.
