After losing his starting position and playing very limited minutes the second half of the season, Michigan sophomore point guard Kelvin Grady has decided to transfer from Michigan. Head coach John Beilein announced Grady's decision to transfer in a press release today.
"Kelvin has asked for his release from the program and we will grant that to him," said Beilein. "Over the last two years, he has been a positive influence in helping build the foundation of our program. He is a wonderful young man on and off the floor. We wish him nothing but success in the future."
"It's been a wonderful experience both as a student and as a player here at the University of Michigan, but I feel I need a fresh start," said Grady. "I love this university and want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and everyone else who has supported me over the past two years. However, I have decided to explore other academic and playing opportunities at this time."
In two seasons in Ann Arbor, Grady played in 64 games with 33 starts. He averaged 4.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for the Maize and Blue.
