After only three games back in the lineup, South Florida announced that sophomore guard Jahmal McMurray will transfer from the program.

McMurray, who started all but five games last season for the Bulls, was an American Athletic Conference All-Rookie Team selection after leading the team in scoring at 15.2 points per game.

His sophomore campaign got off to a rocky start, as he was suspended for the first six games before making his debut on Dec. 3 against Bethune-Cookman. In only three appearances this season, he was averaging 20.3 points per game.

The Bulls haven’t even reached conference play, yet have lost their three top scorers from a season. Chris Perry was dismissed in April, while Orlando Antigua also parted ways with Roddy Peters only several weeks early.

McMurray, the 6-foot-1 guard, didn’t just score, he logged heavy minutes for the Bulls. Without him for the remainder of the season, Penn State transfer Geno Thorpe and Troy Holston Jr. will continue to log better than 30 minutes a night each.

South Florida is 5-4 this season, rounding out the non-conference slate this week with games against Northern Illinois and Delaware.
