Minnesota basketball power forward Davonte Fitzgerald will transfer to another program for his final season of eligibility, Minnesota announced on Monday.
Fitzgerald will be a graduate transfer when he officially transfers to another program, making him available to play next season, according to NCAA graduate transfer rules. The redshirt junior has not yet announced where he will be playing next season.
Fitzgerald played his first two seasons with Texas A&M from 2013-15, but he transferred to Minnesota after his second season with the Aggies. Fitzgerald spent two seasons with the Golden Gophers, but only played in one of those seasons.
After sitting out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules, he tore his ACL in practice about a month before the 2016-17 season began, forcing him to miss that season as well. The NCAA granted Fitzgerald a sixth season of eligibility due to the injury, which he will use next season.
This season with the Gophers, Fitzgerald averaged 3.7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.4 blocks while averaging 13.3 minutes per game.
Fitzgerald earned his undergraduate degree in communication studies in December, and has since been studying as a graduate student.
