Andrew Rowsey announced on Wednesday night that he will be transferring out of the UNC Asheville program.

“I want to thank Asheville for a wonderful experience the last two years,” Rowsey wrote on Instagram. “I appreciate all of the support the community, my teammates, the coaches and the staff have given me. Asheville will always be a home of mine.”

Rowsey will likely be a sought-after transfer target. The 5-foot-10 lead guard averaged 20.3 points as a freshman in 2013-14, following that up by averaging 19.2 points this past season.

The Lexington, Virginia, native will have two seasons of eligibility remaining, although he will have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
