According to a press release from Iowa on Monday afternoon, Trey Dickerson will be leaving the program following this season by transfer. Dickerson's play has been limited over the last few weeks and he only played in one of Iowa's last seven games and it appears that things did not work out as he will be heading elsewhere.
Dickerson transferred into Iowa as a JUCO player, making this is first season with the Hawkeyes. He played in 15 games this season including the first 10 games of the season for Iowa including a season high of 20 minutes against UMBC. His offensive rating this season is 75.2 and he was averaging 2.7 points and 0.5 rebounds per game this season.
Here is the release:
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa head men's basketball coach Fran McCaffery announced Monday that Trey Dickersonhas decided to transfer from the program and has been granted a full release from his scholarship.
"We appreciate the contributions Trey made during his time here," said McCaffery. "Trey has a bright future and we wish him all the best moving forward."
Dickerson, who intends on finishing the spring semester enrolled at Iowa before transferring, came to Iowa after one season of junior college basketball at Williston State in North Dakota. The 6-foot point guard averaged 2.7 points, 1.2 assists and 0.5 rebounds in 15 games this season with the Hawkeyes.
"I appreciate the staff and Hawkeye nation for showing me love," Dickerson said. "I enjoyed my time here by I have to do what's best for me."
There is no doubt that Dickerson's play was limited this season, but he looked like a solid prospect down the road for the program and now Iowa will have to figure out its options for next season. There appears to be no information on where he will transfer to at this time.
