PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pitt junior guard Trey Zeigler will be leaving the school.
The university announced Tuesday that Zeigler is transferring, but did not say which school he will be attending.
“We will assist Trey in finding the best situation for him to reach his goals both academically and athletically,” Pitt head basketball coach Jamie Dixon said in a press release. “He’s a great kid, hard worker and good player. We thank Trey for his contribution to our program over the last year and wish him much success in the future.”
Zeigler averaged 4.4 points per game in his first season for the Panthers. He had transferred from Central Michigan a year ago after his father, Ernie, was fired as head coach. Zeigler petitioned the NCAA and was allowed to play without sitting out the required one season.
Dixon called Zeigler “a great kid, hard worker and good player.”
This is the second Pitt player to announce this week that he is leaving the school.
It was announced Monday that freshman running back Rushel Shell filed paperwork to leave the University.
