Iowa freshman guard Andrew Fleming has been granted a release from his scholarship and will play elsewhere next season.

Fleming averaged 2 points and fewer than 1 rebound and 1 assist per game. However, he played in just 11 games this season and only saw more than 10 minutes in three of those contests.

“We appreciate the contributions that Andrew made to our team this past season,” head coach Fran McCaffery said in a release. “Andrew has a bright future, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. My staff and I will do whatever we can to help Andrew during this transition.”

Fleming is the second Iowa player to transfer in as many days; Brandon Hutton announced on Wednesday that he would attend a different school next year.

“Thank you Hawkeye Nation for welcoming me and everyone else who has supported me this year, but I believe God has an amazing plan for my life elsewhere that is bright,” Fleming said in a release.

Iowa now has two scholarship spots open for next season, which means the Hawkeyes could see a new face or two before the dust settles.

Fleming’s split from Iowa seems to been amicable.
