Kansas University small forward Merv Lindsay reportedly has announced he will transfer to New Mexico.
The freshman will be ineligible until to the 2013-14 season, the Lawrence (Kansas) Journal-World reported Thursday. He will still have three years of eligibility.
Lindsay, a 6-7, 195-pound from Moreno Valley, Calif., scored 11 points last season, averaging 2.2 minutes in 12 games this past season. He was expected to be pressed for playing time next season, competing against Travis Releford and incoming freshman Andrew White.
"I felt really good there, very comfortable," Lindsay said of the Albuquerque, N.M. school. "I liked everything about the place -- the coaches, players. I didn't have any complaints, none at all. It's a family atmosphere."
"I'm going to use the year off to work on everything that is wrong with my game, get in the weight room and improve so I'll be ready to contribute to the team the following season."
