Iowa guard Patrick Ingram to transfer

Iowa guard Patrick Ingram plans to transfer after just one season with the Hawkeyes.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says Ingram, a native of Indianapolis, has been granted a release from his scholarship after indicating he wants to play closer to home.

Ingram fell behind fellow freshmen Mike Gesell and Anthony Clemmons in a crowded backcourt last season.

Gesell and Clemmons both cracked the starting lineup, while Ingram averaged less than a point a game in 19 appearances.

The Hawkeyes will also add incoming freshman guard Peter Jok, Iowa's Mr. Basketball in 2013.
