After a disappointing and injury-ended sophomore season, Paul White is transferring from Georgetown, the school announce Thursday.

The 6-foot-8 junior averaged 18.4 minutes per game as a freshman, but saw his minutes halved as a sophomore as a hip injury held him out of the first four games of last season before he underwent surgery in January that ended his sophomore campaign.

Given Georgetown’s depth at his position, White was probably going to have a hard time finding minutes with the Hoyas this season, which likely paved the way for his exit.

White was a consensus top-100 recruit coming out of powerhouse Chicago high school Whitney Young in 2014 with offers from the likes of UConn, Arizona, Florida, Ohio State, Wisconsin and a host of others.
