Freshman guard Chris Harrison-Docks plans to transfer to another school, according to a press release from Butler’s Sports Information Department.
The decision has been announced just one day before the men’s basketball team is set to open its regular season against Elon at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
The release does not provide a direct reason for Harrison-Docks’ decision.
“I believe that another school would better compliment me both personally and athletically,” Harrison-Docks said in the release. “I want to thank everyone who has supported me during my time here at Butler and may find disappointment in my decision. I wish my teammates and coaches the best of luck.”
Harrison-Docks scored his first two collegiate points during Butler’s exhibition victory over the University of Indianapolis last week.
“Chris notified us of his intention to transfer from Butler,” coach Brad Stevens said. “Certainly I’m disappointed, but I want to thank him for his effort the last couple of months and wish him nothing but the best from the entire Butler basketball program.”
It is unclear where Harrison-Docks intends to transfer to at this time. He will retain four years of eligibility at the college level.
