Juan Anderson To Transfer

New, comments

The California native will be leaving the Marquette men's basketball program after two years. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Like with Jamal Ferguson before him, there's no point in a preamble, since it's mostly covered in the actual news release from @MarquetteMBB:

And we'll chip in this tweet from Paint Touches, too:

You can look at the third tweet from the athletic department and, if you want, interpret that as Anderson's family has something more important than basketball going on, and you can't fault the kid for wanting to be closer to Oakland in that case.

From a basketball perspective, we've never really seen what Anderson was capable of on the floor. He missed time from injuries and suspensions his freshman year, and he was hampered last summer by offseason shoulder surgery. He ended up starting 31 of Marquette's 35 games this season and played in all of them, but on nine occasions he played less than 10 minutes, ceding his spot on the floor to Jamil Wilson.

Anderson's departure drops Marquette to 12 scholarship players for 2013-14 for right now. The maximum allowed under NCAA rules is 13.
