King leaving Hurricane
TULSA, Okla. - Zeldric King, a 6-foot-7 power forward at the University of Tulsa, has decided to leave the Golden Hurricane basketball program and will transfer, according to Tulsa Head Basketball Coach Danny Manning.
"We appreciate Zeldric continuing to stay with our program following the coaching change," said Manning. "Zeldric and I agree that to reach his athletic and academic goals it's in his best interest to continue his basketball career elsewhere. We wish Zeldric nothing but success in the future."
King was recruited to Tulsa by former TU coach Doug Wojcik. A product of Cedar Hill High School in Dallas, Texas, he played in 21 of 33 games as a freshman last season, averaging 3.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game.
King missed the final 12 games of the 2012-13 season with a leg injury.
"I enjoyed playing with my teammates and am very thankful that I was given an opportunity at Tulsa," King said in a release. "I look forward to continuing my collegiate career."
The Hurricane now has an open scholarship. As Inside Tulsa Sports recently reported, Tulsa has been mentioned with a few potential Division-1 transfers, and it is possible that one could visit the TU campus next week. It appears an incoming transfer would be the likely choice for the scholarship, but Tulsa could sign a junior college prospect as well.
