Penn State basketball small forward Nazeer Bostick is transferring from the program after two seasons, the team announced this week.
Bostick averaged 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game as a sophomore in the 2017-18 season. According to the press release, Bostick wants to play at a program where he’ll have more opportunity.
“Naz indicated that he is interested in continuing his basketball career at a program where he can play a more significant role,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said in a press release. “We fully support Naz in his decision and wish him the very best in his future endeavors. He’ll always be a part of our Penn State family.”
Bostick was suspended during Penn State’s NIT title run after he was charged with marijuana possession.
Bostick, who hails from Philadelphia, was one of four Penn State players from Roman Catholic (Pa.) High School on last season’s roster. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining wherever he ends up.
Penn State is also losing star point guard Tony Carr. A first-team All-Big Ten selection as a sophomore last season, Carr declared for the 2018 NBA Draft earlier this month.
