Duke center Chase Jeter is transferring after two seasons at the school, the university announced on Thursday.
Jeter said he plans to transfer to a school closer to his hometown of Las Vegas.
Jeter appeared in just 16 games as a sophomore and didn't play after sustaining a herniated disk in his back in mid-January. He averaged 2.1 points and 2.7 rebounds this season.
Jeter played in 48 games for the Blue Devils and averaged 2.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocked shots.
"Chase has been an outstanding young man in our program for the last two years," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement. "He has been one of our top academic performers since he arrived on campus. Unfortunately, he was held back this season due to injury.
"We wish nothing but the absolute best for Chase and his family."
Jeter said he weighed the situation before making his decision.
"I have loved my time at Duke, getting a world-class education and competing alongside my brothers every day," Jeter said in a statement. "After careful consideration, I decided it would be best for me to transfer to a school closer to home. I've made long-lasting relationships here and I want to thank my teammates and coaches for the support they've given me over the last two years."
The Blue Devils went 28-9 this season and were eliminated by South Carolina in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
