The UCONN men’s team now has one scholarship available to give to a recruit now that Ben Eaves has decided to transfer. He hasn’t announced where he is planning to transfer too.
Eaves barely played this season and only scored 1 point.
â€œBen and I met this week and he let me know that he has decided to continue his college career at another institution,â€ said Coach Calhoun. â€œWhile I am sad to see Ben leave, I completely understand his feelings and will do everything I can to help him transfer to a school where he can enjoy the best experience for him as a student and as a basketball player. I wish him nothing but good luck in the future.â€
â€œI have really enjoyed my year here at Connecticut and this has been a tough decision for me and my family to make,â€ said Eaves. â€œI am excited about what is in store for me in the future and appreciate that the year here at UConn has made me a better player and person. I look forward to finding a school in the next several weeks that will help me continue my college experience, both as a student and as an athlete. Until then, I will continue to work hard here in the classroom and finish the semester strong.â€
