After playing two seasons under former head coach Stan Heath, USF forward Zach LeDay announced his decision to transfer via Twitter on Friday. The decision comes just over two weeks after the school named former Kentucky assistant Orlando Antigua its new head coach.

LeDay, a 6-foot-7 forward from The Colony, Texas, averaged 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in his two seasons as a Bull. Of the 32 games LeDay played in last season he started 16, with his best performances as a sophomore coming in road losses to SMU (12 points, six rebounds) and Rutgers (ten points, four rebounds).

LeDay’s decision to transfer leaves USF with just one upperclassman in the front court heading into the 2014-15 season, with 7-foot-3 center Jordan Omogbehin being a redshirt junior. Rising sophomores John Egbunu and Chris Perry both factored into the rotation as freshman, with Egbunu averaging 7.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game and Perry (8.9 ppg, 5.3 rpg) also being a productive option.

Both forward Dre Clayton and guard/forward Bo Zeigler redshirted in 2013-14.
