Creighton forward transfers to University of Denver


The Creighton program loses it's second–leading rebounder in Ronnie Harrell, Jr., who took to social media and announced his decision to transfer back home, playing for the University of Denver during his graduate year.

Harrell averaged 7.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in his 30 appearances, starting 14 times and playing around 25 minutes a game.

He scored a season-high 18 points in a January win over Seton Hall and had 15 rebounds in a November win over UCLA.

Harrell tweeted he was thankful for the love and support he received from coaches, teammates and fans and that he's excited about returning home and playing for Billups.

Add in the graduation of Marcus Foster and Toby Hegner, plus the possible departure of Khyri Thomas to Harrell's transfer and the Jays are without 58.5% of their point production from the NCAA qualifying roster.
