Injured Cincinnati guard Ge’Lawn Guyn has only played in three games this season as he deals with a right pinky injury that he suffered in practice. According to a report from Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati EnquirerBearcats head coach Mick Cronin will give the senior his release after the season.

The 6-foot-2 guard could graduate and opt to go elsewhere next season. Guyn has been a valuable three-year reserve for the Bearcats, averaging as many as 19 minutes per game as a junior.

“I’ve given him his release,” Cronin said. “If he decides to graduate and transfer, that’s up to him.”

Given that Guyn has never played more than half of the game during his Cincinnati career, he could decide for a fresh start elsewhere for a team looking for an experienced player to play more minutes.
