Georgia basketball player Ebuka Anyaorah has requested and received a release from his scholarship, the school said Wednesday.
He becomes the third player since the end of the season to leave the Georgia program. Like the first two, Anyaorah said he intends to transfer elsewhere in hopes of more playing time.
A 6-foot-4 guard from Suwanee, Anyaorah averaged 10.5 minutes per game as a redshirt freshman this past season, scoring 2.7 points per game. He sat out his true freshman season after surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right tibia.
The other two players to depart the program since the season have found new schools. Forward Drazen Zlovaric signed with Tennessee-Chattanooga and guard Demario Mayfield with UNC-Charlotte.
Anyaorah, Zlovaric and Mayfield were recruited to Georgia by former coach Dennis Felton.
