Wisconsin guard George Marshall seeking transfer

Dec 7, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

The Wisconsin Badgers and head coach Bo Ryan announced on Saturday morning that redshirt sophomore guard George Marshall has opted to transfer.

The announcement of Marshall’s transfer was released on the Wisconsin athletics website this morning.

“George came and talked to me and he informed me that he wanted to pursue his options of playing somewhere else,” Ryan said. “I told him we would help in any way we could to facilitate his transition to a new school. He’s a great kid, from a terrific family and we wish him luck as he continues his academic and athlete career.”

The 5-foot-11 point guard from Chicago only saw two games of action this season and wasn’t getting much playing time for the Badgers.

“I love my teammates and the team and I’m thankful to the university and Coach Ryan for the chance to play at Wisconsin,” Marshall said. “I’m excited to look for a new opportunity.”

    Will Bo list about 50 schools where he can’t transfer to like he did with J. Uthoff 2 years ago?

      I think there is a major difference between the two. Maybe I will be wrong and UW will restrict him, but I do not see it. Uthoff was a completely different situation. Marshall attended UW, played for the team and it was not working out and it was best for both Marshall and Wisconsin to part ways. Uthoff was not the same situation.
