Samir Doughty to transfer from VCU

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - VCU Athletics announced that rising redshirt sophomore guard Samir Doughty will transfer from the men's basketball team, effective immediately.

"We have discussed Samir's future with him and decided together that it is best that he transfer from our program. We wish him well in his basketball career and future endeavors," said Mike Rhoades, VCU Head Men's Basketball Coach.

The university said in a release it will not release any more information regarding his transfer due to federal privacy laws.

In his lone season on the court at VCU, Doughty averaged 9 points per game. Unless he chooses to transfer to a program lower that Division I, he will lose a year of eligibility, as he has already burned his redshirt.
