For the fifth time since Stan Heath was dismissed as the South Florida head coach, a players has requested and been granted his release. The latest departure from the program is freshman center John Egbunu, the school announced on Tuesday evening.
The Bulls lost a pair of guards on Monday as Javontae Hawkins and Musa Abdul-Aleem left the program. Sophomore forward Zach LeDay decided to transfer on Saturday. Heath’s son, Josh, has since committed to Georgia Tech.
The 6-foot-10 Egbunu averaged 7.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in his lone season with South Florida. He committed to Heath as a four-star prospect, ranked No. 83 overall in the Class of 2013, according to Rivals. He’ll have three years of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2014-2015 season, per NCAA transfer rules.
Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua agreed to fill the coaching vacancy on March 31.
