Chrishawn Hopkins will reportedly look to transfer after being dismissed from Butler

Chrishawn Hopkins, a 6-1 guard who was dismissed from the Butler basketball team last week, will transfer to another school, the Indianapolis Star is reporting.

“I will be transferring,” Hopkins told the paper. “It’s just a matter of time.”

Hopkins was dismissed by coach Brad Stevens for a violation of team rules, with his coach calling the action a “consequence” for a failure to meet the program’s standards.

“It’s out of my hands,” Stevens told the Star. “The bottom line is, I’m not going to talk any more about it.”

According to the Star, Hopkins is waiting for word from the NCAA as to whether he would be able to transfer to another Division I institution for the fall semester, which would accelerate his timeline for eligibility at a new school.

If he were forced to wait until the spring semester to transfer, that would mean that the 22-year-old Hopkins would not be eligible until December of 2013, the start of the second semester next season.

If he were to transfer to Division II, as we have seen some players do before, he would be eligible to play right away.

Hopkins was the second-leading scorer last season for Brad Stevens’ team, averaging 9.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. He is a native of Indianapolis.

The Bulldogs begin their 2012-13 season on Nov. 10 against Elon.
